The park of the health resort

Oases of relexation

What do Central Park, Hydepark or English Garden in New York, London and Munich have in common? They are all unique green havens of relaxation and deceleration amid vibrant and busy metropolises. On a smaller scale, this is also true for the park in the heart of Bad Ems. The organisation Staatsbad Bad Ems GmbH presents to the guests not only the English and the French parts located in the valley but also the large park at Bismarckhöhe above the city roofs around the local medical centre.


    Mineral springs in Bad Ems

    The elexir of live

    Everybody knows the Emser Pastille®. They are produced from the mineral-rich thermal spring water and this valuable natural resource is the basis for many further products, for which the organisation Staatsbad Bad Ems GmbH is the licenser and the raw-material supplier at the same time. The organisation operates extensive pumping and conveying systems with the associated distribution networks. The hot water of the spring Robert-Krampe-Sprudel flows for example by pipeline to the bath Emser Therme where its visitors enjoy the warm water.  The large amount of available heat is also used for energy purposes.

        Marble Hall, Kurtheater und Park Stage
