Hiking on the tracks of noble spa guests
Since 1846 Bad Kreuzen is known as a health resort. At that time the duke Ernst of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha let built a cold water establishment in the castle tavern. Under the guidance of the spa doctor Dr. Otto Fleischanderl this place developed into a meeting point of aristocrats. Springs were captured, paths constructed and places of relaxation created.
The central point of the spas during that time was the “Wolfsschlucht” where the first spa treatments in natural waters and with simple shower facilities took place. Today melodious names like “Wiener Wellenbad”, “Greiner Duschen”, “Herzogsquelle” or “Felsendom” remind us of these times. The historical places are equipped with panels that represent silent witnesses of this time period.
