    Welcome to Bad Steben

    The market town of Bad Steben, picturesquely situated in the Franconian Forest on the Bavarian-Thuringian border, is the perfect place for anyone who wants to recharge their batteries far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. As one of the oldest spas in Germany, Bad Steben is especially popular with those who want to do something good for their health in a natural way. Because of the combination of natural moor, carbonic acid and radon, which is unique in Western Europe, the state spa is an attractive destination for a spa, wellness and health vacation.

    During your stay at the Hotel Promenade in the middle of Bad Steben, you have many possibilities to spend your free time. Stroll through the romantic city center, visit the most beautiful thermal spa in Bavaria or try your luck in the casino Bad Steben! You will find a selection of sights below.

    Bargain hunters, on the other hand, will get their money’s worth at one of the many factory sales in the region: especially porcelain (Rosenthal) and decorative items, but also leather goods and clothing are highly prized here by visitors from all over Europe – why don’t you come and be surprised by the variety!

    Weir Church St. Walburga

    The fortified church „St. Walburga“ in Bad Steben is one of the oldest buildings in the Franconian Forest. This jewel from late Gothic times and is still used as a church on special occasions. Confession and the celebration of Holy Communion take place here on special dates, and a weekly end-of-week service is also held.

    Luther Church Bad Steben

    The Luther Church in Bad Steben Since October 9, 1910, the bell tower of the Protestant church, which is almost 44 meters high, has been ringing out from its central location in Bad Steben. To describe it with artificial terms is hardly possible. It is special in its architectural style and almost unique in its construction. For the 19th century, it was a technical marvel.

    Humboldt House  

    The Humboldt House in Bad Steben. The great thinker stayed here from 1792 to 1796. The Humboldt House belongs to Marlies Milde, who also gives a short guided tour on request. Von Humboldt, the universal genius, set milestones in physics, chemistry and biology, astronomy, geology and cartography. Geophysics and plant geography became disciplines in their own right as a result of his work.

    Graphic Museum

    The „Graphic Museum Schreiner Foundation“ in Bad Steben in the Franconian Forest. Thanks to a significant donation from their rich collection, Mr. and Mrs. Schreiner have contributed to the fact that Bad Steben can now boast a very special museum. It is to their great credit that contemporary art from the „sealed-off“ part of Germany has become accessible to the general public.

    Bad Steben City Hall

    Through the conversion and expansion of a toy factory, the community came into possession of its own town hall in 1928. Today, the municipal administration is still housed in the beautiful building.

    Casino Bad Steben

    A special highlight in Bad Steben is the new casino. In the stylish atmosphere of the architecturally impressive new building, the Bad Steben casino offers every type of game of chance.
