Location and history: The Kursaal at Königsplatz 1 in the Stuttgart district of Bad Cannstatt is a former spa building that is now used as a restaurant and event location.
The classical first part of the Kursaal, also known as the “Great Kursaal”, was built according to plans by Nikolaus von Thouret. The building owner of this spa and bathing establishment was the Cannstatt Fountain Association; This was supported by the then King Wilhelm I. The inauguration took place in 1837, although the construction time is given as 1825 to 1841. Initially, the Kursaal only had an open drinking hall. The building was designed as a bathing and spa house and has a courtyard for drinking cures. From 1858 onwards, Ferdinand von Steinbeis organized "progress exhibitions" in the Great Kursaal. The Württemberg processing industry emerged from these exhibitions. During the Second World War, the Great Kursaal burned down in 1943. It was rebuilt in 1949.
