Bad Alexandersbad – a source of strength
In the district of Wunsiedel in the Fichtelgebirge surrounded by a beautiful landscape, the smallest spa town in Bavaria – the mineral and moor spa Bad Alexandersbad – is situated. The “source of energy” from a small town to a spa place was the discovery of a mineral spring in 1734, whose water has a healing, energetic effect due to its natural enrichment with carbonic acid and iron. The „Luisenquelle“ was named after Queen Luise, the wife of Prussian King Frederick William III. In 1805 the royal couple spent three weeks in the still young spa place and already enjoyed the relaxing tranquility in the nature and the health-promoting effect of the healing water.
In order to meet today’s needs and wishes of health tourism, a comprehensive, innovative development process was introduced in 2008, which is gradually being implemented by architects and landscape builders.
The old spa house is now connected by a glass connection with the new therapy center. Together they form the ALEXBAD. This impresses with a clear, quiet architecture and offer a panorama bath with three pools at the first floor, a sauna area for personal moments of wellbeing, a training park with advanced training equipment and an area for physiotherapy, massages and cosmetics. Perfect prerequisites for curative as well as preventive measures or just for relaxation and well-being!
The flexible 24-hours childcare offer from Monday to Friday at „the Kinderhaus Königin Luise“ also offers more free moving space to parents with small children.
Opposite the ALEXBAD is the beautiful castle of the margraves from the 18th century, whose elaborately redesigned terraces with water games and arcades are an eye-catcher and popular place to stay. The historical spa garden with its centuries-old trees completes the successful ensemble. No wonder that the annual summer and light festival in this ambience will be a very special highlight. In the castle itself today is a center for prevention and alternative healing methods – the focus is in particular the osteopathy.
There are plenty of further leisure activities! Hiking and walking friends reach the impressive rock labyrinth Luisenburg in about 30 minutes, on the edge of this is the oldest German open-air theater. The well-known „Luisenburg Festival“ takes place annually from June to August.
The multifaceted 8 km-long circular path “Queen-Luise-Weg” leads through the spa garden and passes the Luisenquelle. If you need a cooling after a nice summer hiking day, you will find it nearby in the idyllic open air bath in the forest.
At the end of the year, during the Advent season, a Christmasy atmosphere lies over the castle and the spa garden with an impressive Christmas market.
In Bad Alexandersbad you are in the best hands all year round!
