The picture perfect spa town of Bad Aibling is nestled in the lush green valleys of Bavaria, and has a long standing history of providing rejuvenating treatments. The charming town was given the title Bad–meaning spa or spring in German–in 1895 to celebrate 50 years of offering special mud treatments to cure back and joint complaints. In the centre is an expansive park that serves as a city oasis where visitors find two indoor swimming pools, a sauna, and modern spa house offering a variety of treatments—together with the traditional peat pulp of course. Visit the folklore museum to discover 2,000 years of history, or head for the hills and enjoy the tranquillity of nature in the region’s beautiful surroundings.
