Bad Kreuznach is quite a town with its wealth of history and culture that leaves you with plenty to explore and yet thirsting for more. Extraordinary features such as houses on bridges and trysts with landmarks associated with famous personages will have you going crazy with your camera. History is everywhere and documented in the most unlikely of places, if you’d only care to look for it. ;-)
Bad Kreuznach is well known for its health spas. While a spa in itself may not be such a novelty, the historicity that surrounds this town lends a certain archaic charm to the proceedings that you’ll certainly find attractive. Make sure you book in for an appointment even before you get here, so you won’t miss out.
This historic town is chock full of sights that you’ll want to see. The Bath House is one such that will blow you away with its grandeur. For those that associate a shower cabin and a towel with such a mundane activity as a bath, this will surely be enlightening.
The bridge houses on the Nahe Bridge are another wonder. These half-timber houses are lovely in themselves, but when perched atop an old bridge, well, you simply have to see it for yourselves.
Move over to the Corn Market and the Egg Market which are by no means mere market but historic sites with plenty of fascinating tales to tell.
For more historical legends from the past, visit the Castle Kauzenburg. You should definitely stop enroute at the tea temple for fantastic views of the town spread out below.
Roman remains are not something you’d expect to see in Bad Kreuznach, but that’s exactly what you’ll find at the Roman Hall. This old palace dating back to the 2nd century still has relics that speak of the lives of those roman emperors and their pastimes. Speaking of which you should certainly not miss the gladiator remains.
