Salt with that Pretzel & Beer? Saline Nebuliser & Towers -- Kurpark Gardens - Bad KreuznachBeer aside for a moment, Bad Kreuznach, is in the heart of the Nahe Wine Region in Rhineland-Pflaz, Germany.
The town and its environs, located on the Nahe River, are known for wines from the Riesling, Silvaner and Müller-Thurgau grape varieties.
While you can easily explore Kreuznach’s vineyard ecosystems and sample some fine wine and delicious grapes, not to be overlooked is the unique salt water inhalatorium with two graduation towers (each 9 meters high and covering a total of 1.1 km) and the unique saline nebuliser that is the result of naturally occuring salt springs and operations in the Salinental valley for over 400 years. As salty (1.5% content) water trickles down these imposing blackthorn structures what is formed is Europe’s largest open-air inhalatorium -- that sprays a fine salt mist into the surrounding area. The small droplets are then breathed deep into the bronchial tubes to enhance the flow of air intake and exhalation.
Cross Kreuznach’s Bridge Houses to see famed alchemist, Johann Georg Faust Haus -- whom the magical Faust tale is based or spot excavations of an ancient Roman villa with mosaic inlay floors from the 3rd century.
These free and accessible facilities are situated in a Kurpark garden that also features barefoot water treadmills & a barefoot walking path to make any stroll aound here exceptionally good for your well-being... Oh, & the Beer? Brewed on site at the Brauwerk (Saline Karlshalle 11)
