Shouldn't this be a leisure tag? --AndiG88 (talk) 10:10, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Probably not. “amenity” is defined as “Covering an assortment of community facilities including toilets, telephones, banks, pharmacies and schools.”. People don't neccessarily use a Kneipp basin just for personal enjoyment. The main idea/intention is to use it to improve/maintain one's health. Water-treading is part of some sort of therapy (“Kneippkur” in German). So amenity might be actually preferred here for the same reason that amenity=hospital is used. --Wuzzy (talk) 19:29, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
So it should be better placed into the healthcare system. --Polarbear w (talk) 08:57, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
In my opinion is "amenity" a good namespace. There are people who use such facilities for their own health and other for personal enjoyment. --JIDB (talk) 19:44, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

More generic term

This tag should be more generic and not almost exclusive to Germany or any other country. In a generic tag we could have these specific tags. It seems it was a bit discussed in the proposal talk page but it was just that (see Talk:Proposed_features/Extending_kneipp_water_cure#Use_more_generic_term_than_kneipp_water_cure.3F). See also Key:healthcare and healthcare:speciality=hydrotherapy. Zermes (talk) 15:01, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

A more generic tag could be nice, but we would need someone who knows a lot about all possible hydrotherapy amenities and would like to make a tagging proposal. Do you have any concrete examples, that would would put in the same category? We must also take into account, that the Kneipp water cure amenities usually exist on their own (outdoors and without any other therapy installation nearby) and are not only used for healthcare but also for leisure.
