The medicinal spring discovered in Lauchstädt around 1700 led to the rapid development of the fashionable spa.

The historical spa facilities and the Goethe-Theater Bad Lauchstädt represent a cultural and historical tradition of the Central German cultural area that is over 300 years old and continues to have an unbroken impact on the present and future.

In the 18th and early 19th century, the healing power of the mineral spring discovered in 1704 attracted a large number of guests seeking healing to Lauchstädt. The seaside resort, conveniently located between larger towns, developed into a meeting place for the wealthy and educated society of the Central German states. From 1791 at the latest, the artistic fame of the theatre directed by Goethe increasingly determined the decision of contemporaries to travel to Lauchstädt. With the opening of the new playhouse on June 26, 1802, the historic seaside resort is considered an Arcadia of the dramatic art of the bourgeois era and is today one of the most important German places of remembrance of the life and work of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. According to his ideas, the architect Heinrich Gentz designed a theatre building, which in its functional simplicity and modernity virtually embodies the prototype of the bourgeois theatre of the Enlightenment. The technical features include the lower machine, parts of which were originally preserved and restored in 1968, and the historic lacing floor. A guided tour includes the entire accessible area of the historical spa facilities, the Douche Pavilion, which was opened in 1778 and restored in 2016, with a permanent exhibition on the history of the mineral spa, the Kursaal, which was painted in classicist style according to a design by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, the Duke Pavilion, the New Schiller House, whose exhibition focuses on the history of literature and theatre in Bad Lauchstadt, and the Goethe Theatre. In a themed tour with Christiane Vulpius, you have the opportunity to experience a pleasurable walk through the Lauchstadt spa facilities as in the heyday of the spa.
