Bad Neustadt an der Saale is the district seat. You will see a mix of roman-, gothic- and renaissance-style art at its Salzburg Castle. The town is also noted for its bubbling mineral waters and modern health and wellness facilities.
To the southeast, Bad Königshofen offers you relaxation at its own mineral springs, health spas, and wellness centers. It also boasts Germany’s first natural healing lake (called Heilwassersee), with a surface of 720 square meters for swimming.
To the northwest, Bischofsheim an der Rhön is within sight of Kreuzberg, the area’s second tallest mountain at 932 meters. An abbey was built here in the 17th century, and there is a 13th-century tower worth seeing, but be sure not to miss the town’s own famous “cure all” — delicious Kreuzberg beer. ;-)
Mellrichstadt to the north is more than 12 centuries old. Be sure to see its Satzhaus Museum and Wolzogen Castle, featuring an outstanding collection of Thuringian porcelains.
Nearby Ostheim is another health resort, famous for its colorful Spring Festival celebrations, an annual sausage market and Christmas pageants. Still further north is Fladung, where you can visit Franconian village museum, Museum Rhön and a fascinating Railway Museum.
