Do you like being at the sea?
A visit of the “Obermain Therme“ (Upper Main thermal hot springs) in Bad Staffelstein offers a lot of relaxation and distraction from a hard day for everyone.
The brine source was discovered in 1600 m depth in Bad Staffelstein in 1975, and in 1986 the thermal baths were opened.
It is easy to get to the thermal baths, because they are close to the train station. From there you have to walk through the tunnel -not in the direction of the town- and the crosswalk leads you directly to the parking lot.
As the thermal hot springs contain the hottest and strongest thermal brine in Bavaria, their water has a particularly strong healing effect, which has been proved in local therapies. A bath can alleviate you from muscular problems. Moreover breathing in the air full of salt can also help you if you are suffering from respiratory illnesses.
But unfortunately the thermal baths are not suitable for every family member, because you have to relax and keep calm here, which is not so easy for children. Therefore kids under the age of six are not allowed to enter and kids up to ten years have to have a medical prescription.
The water surface in the interior and exterior pool area is about 1600 m². It is divided in indoor and external pools, among them eight jacuzzis. In the central indoor pool and the large external pool you can find “Hydro- Jets“ which massage different parts of your body with a beneficial water jet.
Attention: When the water jet stops, you have to move to the next jet.

The thermal baths have still much more to offer: Daily fitness, wellness, health and beauty programs, for examples.
Several times a day you have the opportunity to refresh your face with a soothing face mask for example or to take part in water aerobics in the saltwater. (Both are included in the price).
Apart from these activities, the thermal baths offer more bookable administrations, for example: therapies or massages.
If you buy an entrance ticket, you should consider a visit of the “Saunaland“ (sauna area), which is one of the biggest in Northern Bavaria.
Furthermore, you have the possibility to enjoy an undisturbed bath in the “Piscina”. (But it has to be booked four weeks in advance.)
The thermal baths even have a “Thermenkönigin“ (Queen of the hot springs)
Her task is to represent the “Obermain Therme” and Bad Staffelstein at fairs, at local and national events.
And secondly, there is the new “MeerBar“ (sea bar), where you can enjoy cocktails and coffee specialties. You can easily pay with the chipcard (you will be given at the entrance).
Also ask your landlord for the “guest pass“, which offers you a discount for the entry of the “Obermain Therme”. The pass also includes some other reductions in Bad Staffelstein.
And if you come by train, do not throw your ticket away, because “Deutsche Bahn“ or “ErgoNet“ offer you an one-euro reduction when you buy an entrance ticket of the “Obermain Therme“.
