Sprudelhof

Bad Nauheim’s landmark, the “Sprudelhof” (lit. Fountain Courtyard), surrounds the bubbling mineral springs, conjuring up Bad Nauheim's vocation as a city of health. The ensemble is an impressive cultural monument. As clearly structured and symmetrical the facility is as a whole, the more playful with a love for details are all the particulars.

Between 1905 and 1911 architect Wilhelm Jost created the “Sprudelhof”, a complete work of art to include the train station all the way to the one kilometer distant “Johannisberg”. His basic concept was an artistically sophisticated frame for the main springs. An avenue should lead arrivals from the train station down the spacious staircase, flanked by the elaborately designed administration buildings, drawing the attention to the “Große Sprudel” (Large Fountain) moving across the vast courtyard past the historic “Kurpark” (Spa Gardens) up to the “Johannisberg”.

The mineral springs in the center of the “Sprudelhof” are surrounded by six bath houses. Each has an aesthetic waiting hall and an enchanting ornamental courtyard with a fountain which is surrounded by a corridor leading to the changing rooms and bath tubs. Here you can enjoy a soothing bath in bubbling thermal waters whilst enjoying the historic ambiance.
