The white gold

Salt and brine, saltworks and spa history are inseparably connected with the development of Bad Rappenau from an imperial knight's village to a spa and health resort and finally to a large district town.



In the beautiful Kraichgau

In the well-known spa and health resort town of Bad Rappenau you will feel the liveliness and atmosphere of a large district town with over 20,000 inhabitants. At the same time, generous and beautiful spa and green spaces characterize the cityscape. 

Here at the brine spa Bad Rappenau you will find a breath of fresh air, a lot of peace and pure nature. Situated between Heilbronn and Heidelberg, Rhein-Neckar and Hohenloher Land, Odenwald and Black Forest you will find vacations for body and soul.

In the town of
gardens and parks

In the three individually designed parks (Kurpark, Schlosspark and Salinenpark) you can enjoy colorful flora, active courses and numerous events. Worth seeing is the historic moated castle from the early 17th century in the castle park.


Relax at the Kurparks´ lake or breathe healty air at the graduation house in the Salinenpark.

Castle park

historical moated castle

The moated castle, framed by beautiful water and park facilities, has become the cultural center of Bad Rappenau. Top-class exhibitions - works by Marc Chagall or Günter Grass - and a varied program of events have made the idyllic castle famous far beyond the spa town.

Museum tour

Frankish Court

During this entertaining tour, the salt works director Rosentritt tells about his life's work. First of all, the path leads to his grave of honor in the municipal cemetery. The tour continues from there to the small but informative museum in the Fränconian court, where visitors can learn about his successful story. The tour lasts approximately two hours.

What you'll find nowhere else

Graduation house provides
for good air

The graduation house in the Salinenpark is a special feature: it is the only open-air inhalatorium in the city. Small but nice, though the effect is the same. Visitors breathe in healthy salty air and benefit from the healing effect on the respiratory system. The brine trickles over about 5500 tufts of sloe brushwood, enriching the nearby air with salt.
