Wildpark Klaushof (zoo with local animals)
The "Wildpark Klaushof" is a zoo with local German animals like deer, otters or wild boars located in a beautiful forest. I love to walk around there, to watch the animals or feed the deer. The "Wildpark Klaushof" is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm in winter, to 6 pm between...

Botenlauben Castle Ruins (Burg Botenlauben)
The year the castle was built is unknown, but it is said to be from around 1180, but there are just ruins left. The best part of the visit is the view of the city Bad Kissingen right up to the region Rhön. Almost every year in fall there is a "castle festival".

Along the street that passes by the Kurhaus in the pedestrain zone, are several buildings with drinking fountains. These are the whole reason the city of Bad Kissingen was founded. There are several different fountains, some running more than others. They run 24hours, and...

Wittlebachers Term: just before coming into BK: Food with VIEW!
It's a drive into the back woods, but it's worth the wait! The food is great, but the beer and the view are the best in Bad Kissingen! The food is pretty typical, but very good... and huge in portions. The main part of the gasthaus over looks the valley where Bad Kissingen...
Gasthof Körner & Biergarten: Best food at a great value!
Food is prepared fresh and presentation is excellent. They have a small menu, but there should be something for everyone: from the standard schnitzel to salads to creamed wild mushrooms with bread dumplings. Good wine menu. If you like ice cream - don't miss the vanilla ice...
This is a good place to have a good German brotzeit. In addition to the usual warm meals, they serve a good meal for the not-so-hungry: selections of meat and cheeses with bread and salads. There is also a selection of local beer.
The buses in Bad Kissingen drive only from Monday to Saturday noon. It is for free if you show the driver your "guest card" (which you recieve for paying the spa tax at your hotel). I recommend to visit Bad Kissingen by car as taking the bus from one end to the other end of...
This little blue shuttle runs around the city. Easy to spot. For healthy people, most of the center of town can be seen by foot.
Take the train!
Leave the car behind and take the train! Public transportation is so easy. The train station lies within a 10-15 minute of the Kur house.The train station is also a good place to park for just 1 Euro. You can park you car here all day. Post your ticket stud on the dash...

Along the river is a well manicured park. Starting from a fountain on one end, paths follow the river. On both sides of the river are huge mansions and buildings that are Health Hotels for vacations and getting over illnesses. I did not walk far down the river but here are some pictures.

Asking for directions
Favorite thing: In my experience, Germans on the street are usually friendly when asked for directions. They'll do their best to help you, and even try their best to speak English. On the streets of Bad Kissingen, most of the people are from out of town. You'll be hard pressed to find a local on the streets. If you're lost, you're better off asking for directions in a shop.
