Bad Essen

Overall rating:

Bad Essen is not included in touristic guides, and it's quite logical: there are no important attractions in the town. The prefix "Bad" makes it clear that the town is a resort. There are about 50 similar towns in Germany.

I found several interesting places in the town and around it.

"The Sole Arena is the central attraction in the health spa resort park. Utilizing a thermal spring, the cylindrical structure offers visitors a luxurious respite to enjoy the benefits of the natural salt waters.

Visitors can enter the structure through one of three tunnel-like entrances. The openings resemble natural cuts in the wood and appear as if the exterior skin was bark with fresh wood inside. Inside the structure opens right up to the natural sky. The interior rotunda is centered around a fountain with benches around.

The fountain pumps the natural salt brine, creating a fine, salty fog. Visitors can sit and relax, breathing and absorbing the salted air, which is also intermixed with pine. The respiratory benefits of salted mist were discovered in the area over 100 years ago as a side effect of the local salt production – an industry indigenous to the area for 500 years.

The Sole Arena is constructed in a historic tradition, but with modern aesthetic. The outer skin is a latticework of timber that is then filled with black thorn brush wood. Together, they serve as an optimal vaporization surface, absorbing the salty mist slowly, letting it linger inside the inner chamber. Using this insulation method, the air in the interior has the same saltiness as oceanic air. The Sole Arena is a tranquil place for visitors to breathe easy, day or night."

Right here on the Bergstrasse Street there's an old water mill and a beautiful small lake with fish. In the middle of the lake there's an island with a small house for ducks.

I found another interesting place before entering the town: Memorial To German soldiers.

Two most interesting places in the area are located on the other side of the Mittellandkanal. These are Ippenburg and Huennefeld castles.

Getting there: Unfortunately, there is no train station in Bad Essen. Nearest station is Bohmte. I went to Bad Essen on bicycle from Melle (track) and went back from Bohmte. There are many pointers on the way. Overall trip was about 30 km. The road Melle - Bad Essen is quite difficult, a lot of ups and downs. So it is best to arrive by train at Bohmte. Maps of cycle paths can be found also on this website.
