The tranquil town of Bad Reichenhall is embraced by alluring Alpine landscapes and verdant visions of woodland. Famed for the healing properties of its medicinal springs, the town features a handful of interesting sights and gastronomical highlights but is primarily appreciated for the relaxed atmosphere and restorative qualities of the surrounding nature. Scenic peaks are perfect for adventurous exploration while the quaint town centre offers architectural delights to satisfy cultural cravings.
Fabulous frescos, intricate facades and commemorative fountains decorate the streets of Bad Reichenhall, exhibiting the rich historical and cultural heritage of the town. In the Old Town, winding streets and narrow alleyways yield beautiful buildings such as the Kurmittelhaus and regal churches such as the Romanesque Basilica St. Nikolaus, a stunning 12th century structure. The ancient Augustinian Chorister Monastery ignites interest with enormous basilica, considered the biggest in ancient Bavaria, and the Kurpark Spa Gardens are filled with fountains and flowers guaranteed to enliven the mind and soul.
Classical music is an integral part of the town’s culture, a passion heightened by the regular visits of Mozart to the therapeutic village; the picturesque Mozart Fountain commemorates his favour and recognises his musical prowess. The grandiose structure of the Bad Reichenhaller Philharmonie is dedicated to the performances of the town’s philharmonic orchestra, and regular concerts can be enjoyed here at weekends.
The delightfully decorated exterior of the Schwabenbrau Restaurant is almost as delectable as the regional and rustic dishes served within. Bursting with authentic charm and robust flavour, the traditional pub offers an ever changing menu local and seasonal specialities guaranteed to delight even the most discerning palate.(Salzburger Straße 22, 83435 Bad Reichenhall)
