The Lovely Park of Bad Sooden-Allendorf

In general, every health resort has a park. Enjoying a walk through the beautiful flowers and trees is definitely one important aspect of a wellness holiday, just like listening to the orchestra during one of our regular concerts. The special highlight in Bad Sooden-Allendorf: Our graduation house (outdoor inhalation facilities), built in 1638 and completely restored from 2000 to 2003, is freely accessible from the park and you can benefit from inhaling the salty air. Like this, a simple walk becomes a pleasant wellness treatment.

 

The entire park, located in the part of town called “Sooden”, is characterized by the town’s history of salt and brine. The so-called “Solgraben“ (brine ditch) flows right through the park. It once used to power the water wheels required to pump up the brine in the graduation house. Close-by, you will find the first bathhouse built in 1881, the pump tower and many other tools and devices used to produce and refine the salt.

 

The park is surrounded by well-retained half-timbered houses along the small-town boulevard “Weinreihe“ and the “Lange Reihe“ street. The Tourist Information of Bad Sooden-Allendorf where concert tickets, maps as well as information on regional attractions are available is also only a short walk from the park. For people interested in culture, the concerts in our unique bandshell will be a special highlight. And also not to forget the “Altes Kurhaus“(old health resort assembly room) with its historical “Wappensaal“ (coat of arms hall) or other events in our “Kultur- und Kongresszentrum” (culture and congress center).

 

After a relaxing walk, you can visit the salt museum next to the park which is one of the most important sights in Bad Sooden-Allendorf. Here you can find out everything about the history of the town, especially all the important facts about salt production and trade and the healing effects of the brine.

 

Active people can also try our new “Spielgolf“ facilities. The “Spielgolf“ courses are larger than those of the well-known minigolf. The obstacles such as bunkers and water are similar to its parent game, classic golf. The series of 18 holes is fun for the whole family and also experienced golfers can practice their putting here.
