Long Description:

An der Stelle, an der heute der Theresien Brunnen steht, befand sich das Theresienbad, dass im Volksmund auch Samerbadl genannt wurde. Neben Badekabinen und Holzbadewannen gab es auch eine kleine Gaststätte. Dem Wasser der hier entspringenden Quelle wurden Heilkräfte, insbesondere gegen Rheuma und Gicht, zugesprochen. 1970 wurden die Gebäude abgerissen. Heute erinnert nur noch dieser Brunnen an das Theresienbad. Benannt war das Bad nach seiner ersten Besitzerin Theresia Fischer, die zwischen 1916 und 1918 auch die benachbarte, noch heute existierende, Kapelle errichten lies. Das Heilwasser wird noch heute von einigen Einwohner genutzt.

At the place where the Theresien fountain now stands, was formerly the Theresienbad (also popularly called Samerbadl). In addition to bath cabins and wooden baths, there was also a small restaurant. The waters of this source were attributed healing powers especially against rheumatism and gout. In 1970, the buildings were demolished. Today only this fountain reminds of the Theresienbad. The bath was named after its first owner, Theresia Fischer, who also built the neighboring chapel, which still exists today, between 1916 and 1918. The healing water is still used by some residents today.
