Route in detail
Traditionally, the spa garden was the centre of social spa life. Lined with regent building, arcade construction and changing hall, the large area is now popular with residents and guests alike. In 1834, the spa garden was commissioned by King Ludwig I together with the arcade construction. Today it also includes the Kurgarten Cafe. The cafe has the following opening hours: Monday: closed, Tuesday – Friday: 13:30 – 18:00, Saturday and Sunday: 11:30 – 18:00.
The Schmuckhof, which can be found in the spa park, forms the structural centre between the White Hall of the Regent’s Building and the games and reading rooms, which are also adjacent to it. This small garden in the style of the Neo-Baroque is the romantic insider tip for those seeking relaxation and lovers of well-kept gardens. In the courtyard there are figures from Greek and Roman mythology, which reinforce the magic of this complex. If you’re lucky, you can experience this enchanting gem in romantic lighting at an event

The Wandelhalle in the spa garden of Bad Kissingen was built between 1910 and 1911 according to plans of the Munich architect Max Littmann. It belongs to the spa ensemble with regent building and arcade construction and is structurally connected to it. The hall is 90 meters long and covers a total area of more than 2,600 square meters.
Today, the Staatsbad Philharmonie Kissingen plays here – sometimes even several times – every day with a very varied program.

With about 15 hectares, the Luitpoldpark is an oasis of relaxation. This landscaped garden was designed in English style. Hammocks under shady trees, benches and loungers are at the disposal of the recreation seeker. In the park there is also a Mediterranean Kneipp landscape, a lawn labyrinth, the fitness station “The Five Kissinger”, a temple of religions and a sound garden. Here, the diverse sounds of nature mix with subtle music several times a day. This results in relaxing sphere sounds.
Playing times are daily from 10:00 to 11:30, 15:00 – 16:30 and 19:00 – 20:30 from Easter to October.
The Luitpoldbad was the largest bathhouse in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century. The Luitpoldbad was built from 1868 to 1871 as a single-storey building complex. There were 120 bathing cabins for the guests. The Luitpoldbad was thus the largest bathhouse in Europe. Today, the building houses the Bad Kissinger casino, the restaurant La Canchanchara and several authorities in the rear. Here the lower floors are open to the public and in original preserved rooms you can relive the bathhouse flair of bygone times. The idyllic location in the 120,000 square metre Luitpoldpark still gives this building a special charm today. The newly designed and architecturally very attractive courtyard is used for various cultural events, especially in summer.
The festive rooms of the Bavarian Casino Bad Kissingen used to be part of the overall ensemble Luitpoldbad. Experience roulette, blackjack and poker in a pleasant and refined atmosphere at this casino. An integrated cocktail bar and many special promotions make every visit a special experience. In the basement, a separate hall invites you to play slot machines.
Since the spa garden was reserved exclusively for the (cure) guests of the city and ordinary citizens of the city were denied access, a so-called Rosarium was created as an alternative. Today, both residents and guests enjoy the Rose Garden and its 130 rose varieties, which can be found on around 10,000 sticks. After large-scale renovation work based on the historical model, the Rose Garden with the Multi-Media Fountain shines in new splendour.
