Bavaria is a wonderful place for holidays and vacation,
the lovely landscape in front of the Alps are good for relaxing and refreshing.
But do you know that there is a place where you can healthness too through
mother nature while you are in holidays?
45 kilometers from Munich away in direction to Salzburg
we have the nice and well known village Bad Aibling. You can reach it by train
or by the near highway Munich-Salzburg. From the airport I will need approximately
a short hour (60 km/45miles) to drive you there.
Since about 150 years Bad Aibling helps suffering people
by therapeutics with "mud". In 1838 two doctors and a drugstore owner
made a lot of experients how they can use the swamp existing there since nearly
10 000 years. In ancient times documents named the village as a recreation
area of the Romans as they had conquered Germany and people knew, in these
old times there was a big knowledge of using the nature.
Seven years later in 1844 was the first "Sole- and
Mudbath-House" founded. And so started a great coming up for that village
in therapeutics and wellness for people from everywhere. The picture shows
one of the first health-resort hotels around 1900.
Some explanation about the healing therapeutics: the mud
from the swamp has the property to store heat and lose it very slowly. So your
body warms up in bath till you have a healing fever. Also included in this
mud there are antiphlogistic, muscles activating and analgesic parts. People
with rheumatism will be freed of suffering pains by the mudbathes because muscles
and the whole body are lighter in the bath. Also they found good healing results
in special female sicknesses.
So, if you plan to visit Germany for some weeks, especially
Bavaria, you can think about a cure in Bad Aibling too. If you are feeling
tired or burned out it will helps you too and in combination with all the opportunities
of the lovely landscape of the Chiemgau you will have both together - refreshing
your healthness, keep your wellness and have good holidays.
There are a lot of acommodations, even the bigger ones are
mostly familiar for all guests. Talking about the food is not necessary you
have from bavarian country style to international dishes everything.
Bad Aibling has 5000 years old roots, a lot of them you
can visit in the museums or in the village itself. Some houses are older than
300 years and the history is documented in paintings or buildings too. The
age of Rokoko and Barock are in some churches still alive but also the always
friendly and hospitable manner of the citizens. They offer possibilities for
every taste, bathing in several clear and nice lakes, not only in the medical
house, you can rent bikes, you can go fishing, a lot of marvellous trips by
foot are prepared, sports like golf or tennis are possible, in winter times
there are ski wandering routes or many lifts in the near Alps. One day trips
to the music town Salzburg in Austria or to Bavarians Capital Munich are very
easy, one of the world famous castles, Herrenchiemsee, is only a few minutes
by car away - what you want more?
Some other castles? No problem - only 5 kilometers away
our picture shows Schloß Maxlrein, there you will find a nice beergarden
for resting and have original bavarian food like we show a little bit higher.
More informations or help you can get by the Tourist-Information
of Bad Aibling personally. I would appreciate to pick you up sometimes
from the airport and drive you down to that lovely and healthfully village
- your George.
