Today I will show you a small "old" village with a "young" mineral spring. This village is located in another lovely area of Bavaria, in the Chiemgau. Many of you know for sure the name "Chiemsee" with one of the world-famous castles from the Bavarian king Ludwig II.

This lake is also named the "Bavarian Sea". Between the Chiemsee and Munich there is one of the oldest nature park in Bavaria with a lot of small lakes and just in the middle of that area you will find Bad Endorf.

I said, Bad Endorf is an "old" village. That is true. The documented roots are back till the years 900 around. But the history is not so exciting like in other towns or villages. The main important thing is the "young" mineral spring. In 1962 there were in Bavaria a lot of testing drills into the ground searching for nature treasures like oil or gas. And drilling down to 4800 meters they were lucky - is grumbles and then it came - but sorry, sorry, no oil, no gas. It was water ! Only water !

But this water was warm, it was a thermal spring they have found. And by testing the quality, they expiered another most worthfully side of that spring, it concludes iodine. So, it was only a short time till Bad Endorf became a thermal spa. That's why I told you about a "young" spring.

Bad Endorf has a very good name since the 80ties now for therapeutics in case of eye-sickness, high blood pressure, problems with the body moving system, heart- and circuit-difficulties or rheumatism. They have there good doctors and a lot of treated people are very lucky after these cures. So many of them come again only for refreshing, relaxing or vacation.

Now you want know how to find Bad Endorf, right ? It es very easy. If you know the highway from Munich to Salzburg in Austria, you take either the exit Rosenheim or Bernau to reach very soon that nice village. I also drive from Munich airport the same way, the distance is only about 80 kilometers (55 miles). A lot of people use the train too, Bad Endorf is connected to the train-road Munich-Salzburg and every hour one of the Interregio- or Intercity-trains stops there.

Because Bad Endorf is located in that nature park region it still has kept his lovely kind of being small and familiar although the therapeutic houses are on the newest level in knowledge and supply. Even new buildings are constructed under the view of pleasing the lovely region.

And if you have never seen you will be overtaken by the opportunities of that nice landscape. My small pictures are only weak examples, the Lord has made in that area a really treasure mix of everything what's nice.

In short trips you can reach the Alps, you will always see them just in front of you (if not turning your back to them). Nice trips to Salzburg, Innsbruck, Munich or only in the near of Bad Endorf will excite you. Playing tennis or golf ? No problem, you have the chance there (after or while using the healing water). You can nearly do any sports, biking, swimming, mountaineering, fishing or even only relaxing. The best would be, plan your next vacation there, I will pick you up from the airport and shortly you are in a familiary location.

More and written informations you can receive via e-mail or post by the nice people of the cure-goverment Bad Endorf, they have also an own homepage Bad Endorf there.
