The new community centre in the converted monastery barn is also a venue for events, the rectory houses the parish office. Domberg - Oldest settlement core of today's town of Bad Bibra (first mention: deed of donation in 786). The name "Domberg" goes back to the Augustinian canons' monastery, which emerged from the Benedictine monastery founded in 963.

3 Mary Magdalene Church
On the foundation walls of the Augustinian canons' monastery, the construction of a collegiate church began around 1100 and was supplemented with a Gothic west tower around 1402. The present church was built in 1868-1871, incorporating older parts of the previous building. It possesses the largest Gothic sculpture collection in the Burgenland district. Thanks to a generous donation by the former citizen of Bad Bibra, Joachim Haedrich from Carlsbad in California, the church has had a complete three-bell chime again since the year 2000. The bells bear the names Peace, Freedom and Family.

4 Old town hall
Probably built in the 19th century, it now houses the Kneipp Information Centre, the town library and exhibitions on the history of the spa in the Baroque period, when the town held the title of "Fashionable Spa of the Dukes of Saxony-Weißenfels", as well as on the upper floor on the boxing legend Franz Diener. The staircase is decorated with a stone beaver, the heraldic animal of the town (design by Prof. E. Pfeifer, Munich).

5 Bathing area with health fountain pavilion and Kneipp facilities
The bathing place impressively testifies to the spa tradition of the town, founded in the 17th century by the dukes of Saxony-Weissenfels. The Gesundbrunnen - covered by the charming pavilion built in 1879 - is the oldest ferruginous spring in Bad Weissenfels.
Bibras. It was first captured by Duke Johann Adolf of Saxony-Weissenfels in 1684. In 1777, the entrance portal to the spring was splendidly designed under Elector Friedrich August II, later King of Saxony.

6 Bathhouse with foundation stone
The former bathhouse was built at the end of the 17th century. After its destruction by the Swedes and reconstruction in 1713, a new bathhouse was built in 1874 with bathing cells and halls. Today it is used as a residential house. The foundation stone
from the year 1777 contains a Latin inscription under the coat of arms, which translates as: "Jehovah the Health Maker to the Glory has the Most Serene Elector of
Saxony Friedrich August, the Titus of our age, these healing waters enclosed by the sublime Johann Adolf in 1684 and renewed by the sublime Christian in 1728 surrounded with this wall in 1777".

8 Aue municipal forest
Picturesque floodplain forest along the Saubach with rare flora and fauna. Highlights of the trail: two historic springs, Finnebahn viaducts and Nitzsche Mill.

9 Heilandsbrunnen, barefoot path, Friedenshöhe
The Heilandsbrunnen is one of the idyllic gems in the Aue. The spring can be accessed from two sides via steps and was enclosed in 1907 (restored in 1996 on the occasion of the spring festival). Right next to it begins the barefoot path, the fun alternative to tiring walking on asphalt and gravel paths with its soft and hard surfaces for a natural massage of the soles of the feet. The Friedenshöhe,
formerly Kaiser-Wilhelm-Höhe, was built in 1904.

10 Sisters spring
The sister spring is characterized by its richness in various salts. The water shows more or less the same properties as the original well. Its inscription reads: "Healing sisters be helpful to all who trust you". According to legend, a benevolent fairy brought healing to three sisters at this spring. The spring was first tapped in 1686 and renovated in 2000.

11 Viaducts
The two listed viaducts in the Saubach valley, the 20-metre-high Zwölf-Apostel bridge and the 29-metre-high and 100-metre-long Schnecktal bridge, are well worth seeing.
The Finnebahn was built in 1912/14 as a single-track branch line. It branched off from the Unstrutbahn in Laucha and met the Pfefferminzbahn in Kölleda. After the II. world war
the rails between Lossa and Kölleda were torn down due to reparation demands. Until the 60s passenger trains still ran between Laucha and Lossa, later only freight traffic. In 1994 the line was closed down.

Excursion tips:

Nitzsche-Mühle - In the catchment area of the Biberbach, which is rich in forage, there were 12 water mills in the past, some of which are still preserved and inhabited today. The Nitzsche Mill, formerly the Kneisel Mill, has been used as a grinding and saw mill since its construction in the 17th century.
Visits from the outside possible at any time throughout the year. Guided tours are available by prior appointment.

Balison outdoor adventure pool - With its giant water slide, swimmer's pool, adventure pool, mother-child area and extensive sunbathing lawns, this idyllic outdoor pool on the edge of the forest invites you to swim, relax and sunbathe.

Romanesque church Steinbach - The church was built around 1220, at the same time as the late Romanesque-early Gothic new building of Naumburg Cathedral. Fascinating are the ornamental forms of the late Romanesque: The choir and the apse are decorated with massive arches.
and richly decorated capitals on the corner columns in the choir. The church is located somewhat away from the village because Steinbach perished during the 30-year war and was rebuilt in its present location. Today the church is part of the Romanesque Road. From Easter to October the church is open on weekends.

Linden Fountain - At the Linden Fountain (built in 2008) you can refresh yourself with Kneipp kicking or with an arm bath. The application is framed by musical sounds. The popular festival place accommodates benches, a grill pavilion and a small open-air stage.
