Rebalance your body and your mind. Whether you visit the region as a patient, spa guest or holidaymaker, you will find plenty of opportunities for a quick recovery, a good rest and lots of relaxation. Health resorts in Saale-Unstrut are not only in the spa triangle of Bad Kösen, Bad Sulza and Bad Dürrenberg, where the fresh smell of a sea breeze is in the air. The spa resort of Bad Klosterlausnitz has natural peat deposits that are used in the treatments. What they all have in common is brine.
Spa Bad Kösen
Kösalina Spa Centre
The Kösalina spa centre in Bad Kösen offers you a comprehensive range of brine, water and heat, as these are the central elements of the healing and relaxation concept. The pure natural brine of the brine thermal motion pool with three percent natural brine will do your skin noticeably good and can alleviate chronic diseases of the joints, allergies and skin problems. It is also open to all guests outside of courses such as water gymnastics and aqua fit.
Facilities such as the Finnish sauna, bio-sauna, steam bath or salt grotto with mini eraser are primarily for relaxation. And those who are still not sufficiently relaxed after a sauna session can indulge in a wellness or beauty treatment. The options here range from facial massages to full-body massages with a bio-massage candle to lava-shell massages. But please book an appointment in advance so that you can enjoy the hours at kösalina without any worries.
Graduation house Bad Kösen
Three of the health resorts in Saale-Unstrut have a graduation house - including Bad Kösen. If you look from the Saale towards the steep slope, you cannot miss the mighty structure there. In the heyday of the graduation works in the mid-19th century, they were used for brine extraction. To this day, one of two water wheels on the Saale is still in operation, driving the field rods with an audible creak. This linkage still pumps brine from the Borlach shaft through an underground tunnel into the graduation works, which was built in 1780. Kösen salt production reached its peak in 1799 and ceased in 1859.
Today, the brine is used for medicinal purposes. The graduation house is a constant attraction for all those who love to breathe in the open air. The brine drips slowly and steadily down the blackthorn brushwood, becoming nebulised in this way, allowing you to breathe air as if you were by the sea.
The Bad Kösen graduation works is unique in Europe, as the brine pumping equipment, consisting of waterwheel, artificial rods, brine shaft and graduation works, has been preserved as a coherent complex including functioning technology to this day.
From April to October, you can breathe in the fresh, briny air during a walk on the 1st floor of the graduation house. If you want to learn more about the graduation house and get a great view over Bad Kösen and the Saale valley, dare to climb up to the upper deck (only on Sundays and public holidays). However, due to weather conditions, it is not always possible to visit the graduation house. Please inform yourself in advance about the exact opening hours and pay attention to the notices at the graduation house.
Bad Sulza brine spa
Liquid-Sound, the successful music experience at Toskana Therme, is not the only reason why you should visit Toskana Therme in Bad Sulza. Warm thermal brine water, underwater music and atmospheric light shows promise relaxation and a sense of well-being. Various saunas indoors and outdoors, numerous wellness offers with different massages and wellness packages, a sauna bar and a restaurant do the rest for your well-being. In the hotel directly connected to the spa, not only spa guests can stay overnight, but also travellers can book a room.
The Toskana Therme always comes up with something exciting to inspire its guests. How about "listening to stories under water" in the Liquid Sound Temple or enjoying electronic music above and under water? We can only recommend that you keep an eye on the calendar of events at the spa.
Louise graduation house with atomiser hall
Bad Sulza is not only one of the health resorts in Saale-Unstrut, but has also been designated a brine spa. So be sure to visit the 142-metre-long Louise graduation house with its walkway and atomiser hall to do something for your health. In the 200 square metre atomiser hall, you will be finely sprayed with the iodine- and iron-rich water and hopefully breathe easier after inhalation. Wearing a protective brine cape is recommended to protect your clothes.
You can't miss the graduation house in Bad Sulza, there is a car park just around the corner. If the atomiser hall doesn't appeal to you, you can also breathe in the aerosols containing sol in the fresh air during a tour of the walkway.
Bad Sulza Clinic Centre
Health resorts in Saale-Unstrut often include a spa centre. Bad Sulza is widely known as a brine spa and naturally has one. Spa guests can relax in the hotel at the spa with direct access to the Toskana Therme. The local spa clinics specialise mainly in orthopaedics and pneumology. The spa complex allows in-patient and all-day out-patient rehabilitation measures to be offered. The primary goal is to rehabilitate you and to help you cope with everyday life again in the best possible way.
Bad Dürrenberg graduation house
Did you know that Europe's longest continuous graduation plant is located in Saale-Unstrut? It has recently been extensively renovated. Of the former five graduation towers, three have survived the test of time and extend over a length of 636 metres. An atomiser hall is directly connected, on the back of which stands a brine dwarf with a white graduation mantle and brine drinking cup as a symbol of the former spa business. Today, you can walk along the walkways at the graduation house and breathe in the brine-laden air, or simply relax on one of the many seats. We recommend that you wear a brine coat to protect your clothes, which you can borrow for a fee from the Palm and Bird House.
Spa gardens Bad Dürrenberg
In Bad Dürrenberg you can't get around the graduation house - it can't be missed. Right behind it begins the secluded spa park, which will be in its own spa until 2024 and will be made chic for the State Garden Show in 2024. Then it will once again invite you to stroll around with its large flowerbeds, lawns and over 90-year-old trees.
In the immediate vicinity of the graduation works is the Borlach Tower, a massive brine extraction tower built in 1765 above the first brine well. Today's museum in the tower pays tribute to the achievements of Johann Gottfried Borlach and documents the history of salt extraction, the processing of Dürrenberg's brine into evaporated salt and the development of Dürrenberg into a spa resort.
Do you know the shaman of Bad Dürrenberg?
Although this has nothing to do with the health resorts in Saale-Unstrut, it shows how important the place was in prehistoric times. In 1934, two approximately 8,500-year-old human skeletons were found during construction work. The find went down in the history of the town as the Dürrenberg Shaman. The Museum für Vorgeschichte (Museum of Prehistory) in Halle has its own exhibition area dedicated to the shaman, and only recently the state archaeologist published a book on the shaman (Das Rätsel der Schamanin: Eine archäologische Reise zu unseren Anfängen, Rowohlt Buchverlag, 2022).
Kneipp in the Dukes' fashionable spa
Extensive forests, stream valleys, a gentle chain of hills and Bad Bibra right in the middle. The small town invites you to follow in Kneipp's footsteps and strengthen your immune system in the process. In the centre of the former baroque fashionable spa of the Dukes of Saxony-Weißenfels you will find a Kneipp water treading pool with iron-rich spring water. Embark on a Kneipp walk through the city forest and explore the history of the spring, whose water, according to an old legend, even cured Duke Christian's eye disease.
The public Kneipp walks, for which a fee is charged, are usually offered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The meeting point is the tourist information office in Bad Bibra. There you can also find out which date is best for you.
Every year between May and June you can take part in a guided tour under expert guidance in the Saale-Unstrut-Triasland Nature Park near Bad Bibra - because this is the time for orchid walks. Depending on the flowering season, you can marvel at up to 18 different species of orchids and plants. The municipality on the Finne River will be happy to inform you about the next dates.
