Since 2005, the plateau of Kues in Bernkastel-Kues has been designated as a climatic health resort. In the health resort Kueser Plateau you will find the four large clinics of the MEDIAN Reha Center Bernkastel-Kues next to the health resort park and the "Kurgastzentrum" (welcome centre for patients of the health clinics).
In order to be awarded the title "Heilklimatischer Kurort" and "Luftkurort", a place must meet very strict requirements. These awards are a seal of approval for health resorts whose climate is therapeutically effective. In order to guarantee the high quality standards, the air purity of the spas is regularly checked. In Bernkastel-Kues, from 02.07.2010 to 15.07.2011, two different locations in Bernkastel-Kues were measured for a good year: the spa park and the access road, the Panorama Road.
The official report of the German Weather Service on the assessment of air quality in Bernkastel-Kues comes to the following conclusion: The high air quality requirements have been met without exception. It is confirmed that the air-hygienic conditions for the confirmation as a climatic health resort and health resort with the indication "respiratory diseases" are fulfilled without restriction.
