Mountain Biking Highlight
Bad Salzungen belongs to the Werra potash district - potash salts have been extracted here on a large scale since the 19th century. Salt extraction in Bad Salzungen goes back much further and has a long tradition here. In the past, the city's brine springs provided the "Salzung Pfänners" with great wealth. Today the graduation tower near the Werra is no longer so significant, but no less beautiful. Here you can stop and take a deep breath: The humid, salty air should be very healthy. Next to the graduation tower is the Salt and Saltworks Museum, where you can learn everything about the city's salty past.

The tower was built in the 19th century to promote the brine for the graduation tower. In addition, the tower also serves as a breeding ground for a pair of storks. The young storks can also be observed in the nest via a webcam (badsalzungen.de/webcam.html).
