Oh, wait. it kinda does have “bad” in its name.
Anyone out there is free to ponder if Schlangenbad has the moniker. I, however, will be hitting the spas. ;-)
Lovely, I’ll think of the gorgeous walking lanes through the Rhein Taunus Nature Park (or the 11th century Rheingau protection wall of the Gebückwanderweg) while I’m getting a facial. That’s right, real men aren’t afraid of good skin.
That’s a far walk, so how about a guided bike tour instead? No need to go too far, you have to make it back for the outdoor summer concerts or the 3-day Schlangenfest.
All this activity can make anyone hungry. So head of Rheingau Straße where many of Schlangenbad’s restaurants are located. Shopping is a good activity to help with digestion, so off to the antique shops and clothing stores.
Die-hard nature lovers might rather take in an herb walk (who am I to judge), while castle seekers can head to nearby Burg Lahneck.
However, it is the spas of Schlangenbad that keep drawing you back. Of course, you haven’t had time to hit the sauna or drink the hot springs water from the fountain yet, have you?
Nope, didn’t think so.
Yes, anyone can head to cities like Wiesbaden for the spas — but doesn’t it give you a thrill to find precious places like Schlangenbad? I know me and my good skin do. ;-)
