Bad Kissingen is a famous spa town (hence the word "Bad") in Lower Franconia. It is one of 11 "Great Spa Towns of Europe", a transcontinental UNESCO world heritage site.


Bad Kissingen was converted into one of Europe's oldest and leading spas as early as the eighteenth century and had established itself as a global household name by the late eighteenth century with many crowned heads staying here to receive various treatments against countless ills, mostly based on the supposed or real powers of water.
