The idyllic town of Bad Salzuflen resides at the foot of the Teutoburg Forest Mountains and has embraced the benefits of healthy, wholesome living since the early 19th century. Primarily renowned for its mineral enriched saltwater spas, the tranquil town also features some impressive monuments and notable historical buildings. Along the gently flowing Salze River, relaxed coffee shops, refined restaurants and intriguing boutiques reside, giving the town an air of modernity and intrigue.
Half-timbered buildings dominate the Medieval Old Town, in which winding streets and labyrinthine lanes run alongside the glittering Salze Rive. The Town Hall is an impressive example of traditional architecture and the visual banquet of exceptional ecclesiastical buildings is guaranteed to impress; feast your eyes upon the modern white spire of Liebfrauenkirche Church before enjoying the picturesque peace of Kilianskirche. The verdant Kurpark brims with fabulous fountains, colourful flower gardens and historical monuments, and it’s an enjoyable place to while away and afternoon wandering.
Although primarily concerned with rest and relaxation, the town of Bad Salzuflen has a thriving cultural scene; visitors can opt to watch the latest blockbuster at the town’s multiplex cinema, or to enjoy a fine example of dance, theatre or orchestra at the town’s cultural theatre, where visiting performers are regularly hosted.
Housed in an opulent and ornate building in the heart of the Old Town, the Ratskeller Restaurant delivers on authentic atmosphere, traditional taste and aesthetic amiability. Enjoy the gothic grandeur of the interior while sipping on a refreshing pint of Bavarian ale; house specialities include traditional schnitzel served with braised red cabbage and seasoned potatoes. Comfortable benches outside of the building mean relaxed gastronomes can sit comfortably and observe the slow pace of the charming town.
