A powerful combination of heritage, experience and research has enabled Bad Nauheim to become the centre of medicine that it is today. Modern clinics and highly effective therapeutic facilities guarantee the highest possible medical standards. On the Kerckhoff campus, specialist clinics of international standing collaborate with the Max Planck Institute's Heart and Lung Research Centre. This complex of cardiovascular and lung clinics, unique in Germany, provides patients with comprehensive care for a wide range of clinical symptoms. Meanwhile, at the internationally recognised sports clinic, top performers such as Michael Schumacher receive individual treatments. Bad Nauheim's 150-year medical heritage is founded, however, on the presence of mineral-rich spring water, which is used for traditional bathing and drinking cures and also serves the warm, bubbling pools at the Therme am Park. Five salt evaporation works prepare the saltwater, releasing very fine saltwater droplets that soothe the mucus membranes of the respiratory tract. The inhalatorium enables visitors to enjoy a concentrated dose of this healthy 'sea' breeze. A host of cultural events use the town's art nouveau thermal baths as a magnificent backdrop, and crowds of visitors flock to Bad Nauheim's fantastic festivals. Nestled within the lush, rolling landscape of the low-lying Taunus mountains surrounded by the Wetterau countryside, Bad Nauheim can offer an extensive range of outdoor activities.
