In Bad Nauheim, waters of the best quality and particularly rich in minerals bubble up. At the interface between Taunus and Wetterau, our brine (salty water) rises from a depth of over 200 metres. It is rich in trace elements, natural carbon dioxide and iron. On the way up, more and more bubbles of carbonic acid bubble out of the brine, until they finally come to light in the Sprudelhof, steaming and foaming in bubbling fountains.
Even the Söder family recognized the healing power of the Nauheim springs. In 1835 the first "Sool-Badeanstalt" opened, in 1854 the town received its town charter and 15 years later the name "Bad". In the following decades Bad Nauheim became a renowned spa for heart and circulatory diseases. The Bad Nauheim brine can be used as a drinking cure, for inhaling at the graduation buildings or for baths.
Kneipp's holistic teaching aims at a balanced way of life in harmony with fellow human beings and nature. Bad Nauheim supports this philosophy with its facilities and offers and since 2011 has been awarded the title "Kneipp spa". Bad Nauheim has numerous water treading areas and arm bath facilities as well as a Kneipp pool, which is especially designed for children. There are many opportunities for exercise in the green health city with its extensive parks. In the interactive health garden with exercise stations and fitness trail, a herb garden has been created in which medicinal plants grow. And the historic spa facilities are wonderful oases for relaxation and recharging your batteries. After "going full throttle" in everyday life, rest and time out is an important compensation.
The Kneipp therapy goes back to pastor Sebastian Kneipp, who lived and worked in the 19th century. His holistic teaching is based on five "pillars": water, exercise, nutrition, medicinal plants and life order.
Bad Nauheim belongs to the select group of Kneipp Premium Class locations. The seal awarded by the Association of German Kneipp spas and Kneipp health resorts is given to Kneipp health resorts or Kneipp spas that stand out for their innovative Kneipp offers and outstanding service.
