Three tips for bon vivants in Bad Wildungen

Which Bad Wildungen hotel offers wellness, thermal baths and pleasure? And what can you experience in Bad Wildungen? We asked ourselves these questions during our stay in this spa town Hesse. With these tips for connoisseurs in Bad Wildungen, a stay becomes an experience. At the invitation of Göbel's Aquavita Hotel in Bad Wildungen, we spend two days in the spa town in Northern Hesse. At first, however, the city confuses us somewhat. Our navigation device shows us a path that leads past the city of Bad Wildungen. Instead we drive towards Reinhardshausen. Only then do we realize that Bad Wildungen has several districts. These still bear their original place names. Like Bad Wildungen, Reinhardshausen is a health resort.

Which Bad Wildungen Hotel offers wellness, spa and indulgence?

Pure enjoyment in Göbel's Aquavita Hotel

In the center of Reinhardshausen lies Göbel's Aquavita Hotel. Our room is decorated in brown and purple. It invites you to relax with its sofa and terrace. Here we enjoy the sun with which Bad Wildungen welcomes us. From the terrace we look at the spa park.

Bad Wildungen Wellness and Therme

The hotel is connected via a bathrobe walkway to the 2000 square-foot spa. This is right next door. Hotel guests can easily reach the pool and the outdoor facilities of the spa directly from the hotel room. The facilities of the spa can be used free of charge. In addition, the wellness center is located in the same building. There you can be pampered with beauty and wellness treatments (paid).

The culinary offer in the Aquavita Hotel is also impressive. At the breakfast buffet is difficult to choose, as varied is the offer. We also enjoy the selection in the evening buffet.

A walk in the spa park

The spring weather does not last long in the room. The spa park is located directly in front of Göbel's Aquavita Hotel. Numerous walkers do the same and enjoy the warm spring air. The path leads us under deciduous trees to the Wandelhalle of Reinhardshausen. There are regular spa concerts. There is also a café where you can relax. We are too busy here, and we go back to the hotel.

On the way we use one of the park benches and watch the hustle and bustle in the park. There are young families on the way, pushing their offspring in pushchairs in front of them. Young couple hand in hand enjoy the walk in the park. And spa guests sit together on a park bench and get to know each other. A place for bon vivants in Bad Wildungen, both locals and guests like to use!

Cultural enjoyment in Schloss Friedrichstein

The surroundings of Reinhardshausen are also worth a visit. We make a trip to the main town the next day. There, Schloss Friedrichstein rises on the hill above the city and can be seen from afar. We park our car in the parking lot below the castle and walk over the cobblestones to the Schlosstor.

There we learn that at this point in 12. Century a castle stood. After changing ownership, she came into the possession of the counts of Waldeck 1263. One of the daughters of the house of Waldeck, Margaretha, is said to have served the Brothers Grimm as a model for Snow White. The seven dwarves were in reality probably miners from the mines of the region. Unlike the fairy tale, however, the story of Margaretha von Waldeck did not end with a happy ending. She died at the age of 21 years. Rumor has it that she was poisoned.

However, we do not get anything of that from our visit to Schloss Friedrichstein. From the top we have a beautiful view of the city and its surroundings. The Schlosshof also houses the Schlosscafé. In summer you can enjoy coffee and cake in a pleasant environment. Because the coffee terrace is tastefully decorated with flowers and garden decor.

During a visit to the museum you can inform yourself about the military and hunting history of Hesse.

    Hello Monika,

    thanks to your article, I was able to collect many new impressions from an unknown German region. What impressed me most was the background to the famous Grimm fairy tale “Snow White”.

    Greetings,
    Anne

      Dear Anne,

      The region in the Waldecker Land is also called the Grimm home. The two brothers moved there through the countryside and collected the stories they later published in the fairy tale collection. This makes a trip through this region very exciting.

      Best regards,
      Monika

    Dear Monika,

    I just had a similar train of thought like Julia ... Whether the other fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are also based on true stories? I think that's also incredibly exciting!

    The hotel looks really great and you can directly from the rooms to the spa, just sounds fantastic! I would like to relax ...

    Thanks for sharing that with us!

      Dear Barbara,

      that would be really exciting, to research, which Grimm fairy tales still based on true stories. Incidentally, there is a new one in Kassel Grimm Museum, There you can certainly learn more about it.

      Best regards,
      Monika

    The hotel looks just fantastic, especially with the great spa area. And at the sight of the salmon I have now seriously water in the mouth together. Really nice and welcoming area. And regarding Snow White, I've learned something new as well!

      Dear Julia,

      That may well be, the Brothers Grimm have traveled through the region and collected stories from people place. However, I know for sure only from this castle.
