Heilbad Heiligenstadt (spa)
The over one thousand years old town Heiligenstadt is situated at the very heart of Germany and on the borders of Thuringia, Hesse and Lower Saxony. Heiligenstadt is both, a health resort and the capital of the Eichsfeld region, a Catholic region in a largely Protestant environment. The town has a tangible aura of history with numerous historic buildings, rich traditions and folklore. Many famous people including Theodor Storm, Heinrich Heine and medieval sculptor Tilman Riemenschneider have left their traces.
Today’s Heiligenstadt presents itself as a rising wellness and health resort, which has succeeded in continuing the health spa tradition founded in 1929.
Heiligenstadt is situated on the German Fairytale Route.
