As the name suggests, brine and salt have shaped the history of Bad Sulza for centuries. Once brine was used to make table salt, which brought the town in the valley of the small river Ilm considerable prosperity. Later, the city fathers recognized the health-promoting effect of the brine - Bad Sulza's transformation into a spa town began. After Goethe, who stayed here in 1828, advised the foundation of a spa, a first brine bath opened its doors in 1847. Since 2004 Bad Sulza has been officially recognised as a brine spa.

In addition to the historic spa park with its restored drinking hall and music shell, the graduation house "Louise" with its unique inhalation and atomizer hall also bears witness to the long spa tradition. Thanks to its unique composition, the Bad Sulzaer brine brings noticeable relief especially to people with skin and respiratory diseases. The two spa and rehabilitation facilities, which use this brine specifically for treatment, treat a wide range of indications.

The wine is also at home here. It thrives magnificently on the sunny, south-facing limestone slopes and provides the winegrowers with a high-yielding harvest of the tastiest grape varieties every year. Winegrowing has a centuries-old tradition in Bad Sulza. It was first mentioned in documents in 1195. At that time the abbess of Quedlinburg owned a vineyard in the village. However, it can be assumed that wine has been cultivated here for much longer. The protected valley location provides an almost Mediterranean climate with many hours of sunshine and mild temperatures. The wine is grateful for this and every year produces both delicious and exceptional wines with full-bodied, fruity aromas. The people of Bad Sulzaer like to celebrate their wine and enjoy it with friends, acquaintances and guests.

Opportunities are offered by the Bad Sulzaer Wine Spring or the Thuringian Wine Festival - always on the 3rd weekend in August.

A region in the triangle of the cities of Weimar, Jena and Naumburg with a fantastic nature, history, culture and a special passion for the health and well-being of its guests!
