Gardens and parks
Bad Kissingen’s enchanting gardens and parks are always worth a visit. The sophisticated spa garden, the opulent rose garden, the spacious Luitpoldpark: all appear nearly endless as they extend along the banks of the Saale river. Benches and hammocks everywhere invite visitors to stop, rest, and enjoy the lawns, fountains, and the variety of gorgeous flowers. Our green spaces are also perfect for a stroll, a jog, or a power walk, and many of them feature marked trails. Like an extension of our urban parks, Bad Kissingen’s golf course lies just outside the city gates. Its scenic setting and historic trees make it one of the most beautiful golf courses in Germany.
In and around Bad Kissingen you have many opportunities to move and get active. After all, exercise is essential for a healthy lifestyle and holistic recovery - and it's fun, too!
For example, our enchanting parks and green spaces offer the very best opportunities for jogging, Nordic walking or strolling. You can hike and bike on well-maintained trails along the Franconian Saale, in the enchanting surrounding countryside, or in the nearby hiking paradise of the Rhön Mountains. Canoeing on the Franconian Saale or a game of golf on Bad Kissingen's beautiful golf course are also rewarding experiences!
Museum Obere Saline
There’s a lot to discover in the Museum Obere Saline. Until 1893, Imperial Chancellor Prince Otto von Bismarck stayed in this prestigious former residential building during his spa visits. Today the building also houses the Bismarck Museum. It features Bismarck’s residence with its original interior and showrooms that tell the story of Bismarck’s politics in the microcosm of the spa. The Museum Obere Saline also features dedicated sections on salt and salt production, the world-class spa town Bad Kissingen, and toys on the top floor.
