The history of the city can be traced back to the 9th century. At this time the individual places are mentioned for the first time in the Hersfeld tithe register. All are of Slavic origin. The small town is a rural settlement area. The towns of Bad Lauchstädt (1430) and Schafstädt (1558) were granted town rights.

The place gained great importance around 1700 when the healing spring was discovered by Friedrich Hoffmann, a professor of medicine in Halle, who recognised the unusual healing power of the water. After the spring had been tapped in 1710, Bad Lauchstädt developed into a fashionable spa, the so-called "Saxon Pyrmont". In order to meet the growing needs, the historical spa facilities were built around the fountain, with the buildings still preserved today for spa operations and leisure activities.

Since 1761, theatre has been performed in Bad Lauchstädt. As the old theatre building was no longer able to meet the ever-increasing demands, it was demolished and replaced in 1802 by the theatre building designed by Goethe and still in its original state today. Goethe himself worked here as director. Many other famous men of that time visited Bad Lauchstädt - among them was Schiller.

Today the Goethe city of Bad Lauchstädt is a popular tourist destination. Guests mainly come to the numerous events in the Goethe Theatre, the Schiller House or the Kurpark. These objects can also be visited during guided tours.
In the historic town hall, more and more marriages are being held. In summer it is worth a detour to the leisure and adventure pool.

The districts are characterized by numerous church buildings of different architecture. In the OT Milzau there is a former castle with restored outbuildings, such as event rooms, farm museum and baking oven.
