Nestled amidst the rolling green hills of the Dutch border and swimming with healing mineral pools, the medieval town of Bad Bentheim is a wonderfully welcoming place to enjoy a relaxing respite. Healing health resorts are neighbour to majestic Medieval castles and dense woodlands, providing a cultural, historical and naturally beautiful melting pot to enjoy and explore.
Manicured green gardens create an impressive physical fanfare for the majestic Burg Bentheim, the largest Medieval castle in northern Germany. Amidst the towering turrets and thick stone walls, grand Gothic churches and booming bell towers reside; the myriad of passages and tunnels present exciting opportunities for exploration. Submit to serenity with a visit to the Bentheimer Mineral Therme, a selection of sulphur springs containing mineral enriched, thermal waters perfect for submerging within. Beside the thermal spa is the peaceful and picturesque Forest Bentheim, a pretty piece of woodland perfect for wandering within.
Within the darkened depths of the castle, cultural corners offer visitors intriguing insights into ancient trades and traditions; the Alchemy Museum details recipes of past potions and remedies, while the Chariot Museum recreates the truly impressive modes of transport. In the Museum of Historical Objects, artefacts tell the story of the town’s fascinating historical heritage.
Soak in the authentic Medieval atmosphere of a bounteous banquet within the ancient walls of the Fuerstenhof, a unique and unforgettable dining experience. Begin your gastronomical odyssey by sipping a tankard of Bavarian ale beside the roaring fire pit before taking to the wooden bench in order to gorge on rich meats such as smoked sow and sumptuously seasoned potatoes with crispy bacon and fried eggs.(Funkenstiege 1, 48455 Bad Bentheim, Germany)
