Bike Touring Highlight
The Großer Rad am Ludwigsbrunnen in the Südpark is one of the largest water wheels in Europe with a diameter of around 10 meters. The waterwheel formerly powered a pumping station with a wooden rod, which carried brine to the graduation towers of the Bad Nauheimer Saline.

The Südpark in Bad Nauheim is a green oasis
Framed by one of the most beautiful graduation buildings in Bad Nauheim and the river Usa, the Südpark forms a green oasis in the middle of the city. Here, teenagers play on the Frisbee meadows while others sunbathe on deckchairs or have a picnic at the Triton fountain. The little ones can have fun on the water playground.
Sea breeze in the south park
The Südpark is located in the historical neighborhood of the most beautiful graduation buildings in the city, the Gradierbau III is directly adjacent to the park. The graduation buildings are the landmark of Bad Nauheim, which mark both the millennia-old local salt production and a health application of the spa town. A spa treatment for the respiratory organs was already offered at the graduation works, for which beach chairs were set up. The air still tastes of salt here today, and it feels like a day at the sea.
Power from the source: Ludwigsbrunnen
Next to the Gradierbau III is the Ludwigsbrunnen in the south park. The popular healing spring can be tried directly at the fountain or in the drinking spa. It not only provides vitality, but also refreshment for the stroller in summer.

Cycling in green areas and parks in Bad Nauheim is only allowed for children under 8 years of age, otherwise expressly prohibited (with signs and in the park regulations). When it comes to crowds, especially on sunny days, I have to say: as much as it hurts, it makes sense.

The "Lange Wand" in Bad Nauheim (at today's Schwalheimer Straße) consists of two adjoining grading buildings (IV and V) with the windmill tower in the center, the tower shaft of a former windmill pumping brine to the graduation tower. West of it is the graduation tower III at the South Park, whose pumps were powered by a water wheel of approximately ten meters in diameter, the so-called "Big Wheel".
