My grandmother would often tell me about the eight-hour-long walk from her home to the Karlbad. Although a strenuous journey for a kid, it used to be one of her highlights during summers.
Till date, the Karlbad functions without electricity or mobile-connectivity. Can you imagine?
But maybe that’s why it is today a place sought after by managers, busy-bees, and people who need to unwind after long periods of hard work.
It was the serenity of the place that entangled my grandmother – and the Karlbad still seems to have a similar effect on its guests when Erna’s nephew, who now runs the place with his son, shouts: “Booodn!”
