Actors had already played in Bad Kissingen earlier – but in 1904, a theatre had to be built to meet the requirements of a spa of world renown. Max Littmann, who was also making a name for himself as a theatre architect, was commissioned once again. Despite the cramped conditions, he succeeded in planning a theatre that had 600 seats and one circle, that still looked good. Today, the Spa Theatre is popular not only because of the many guest appearances by international companies and famous artists, but also because of its elegant interior. For example, the walls are covered with green cloth and decorated with silver art nouveau patterns. The ceiling fresco of the Cranes of Ibycus is also impressive.
