Situated amidst the low-lying mountains of northern Hessen, Bad Arolsen is blessed with a mild, therapeutic climate, glorious countryside and a diverse range of medical treatments.
Surrounded by lush deciduous and coniferous forests, the spa resort in the heart of the Waldecker Land region has all that it takes for a successful holiday. The health centre at the Arobella leisure pool invigorates both mind and body, and every visitor to Bad Arolsen will find an option to suit, whether this be non-residential spa therapy, traditional spa treatments such as massages, physiotherapy, mud treatments, cold packs or medicinal baths. All this is underpinned by drinking cures, using mineral water from the town's Schlossbrunnen spring, which is high in fluoride, calcium, magnesium and sulphates. Guests can unwind after their treatments in the wellness centre at the Welcome Hotel Residenzschloss, or by exploring the woods, lakes and rivers of the town's surrounding countryside. From walks alongside Lake Twistsee to shopping trips in the university town of Kassel, Bad Arolsen has a diverse range of stimulating leisure activities to offer its visitors. Most notably, its programme of arts and entertainment is impressively eclectic, with hosts of visitors attending the annual baroque theatre festival and the castle and open-air concerts. Museums, art exhibitions and plays round off the spa resort's rich cultural offering, turning each visit into an entertaining experience.
