    Bad Pyrmont's annual Historic Fuerstentreff is like an extra ordinary, 2 days lasting date with the aristocracy back of the 17th-18th century when Frederick the Great, Peter the Russian Tsar, queen Luise, and elector of Brandenburg among many other royal people, as well as great writers such as Goethe, Herder and Leibniz, did their spa vacation in Staatsbad Pyrmont.

    A break at Pyrmont's Kurpark

    Kurpark Pyrmont

    Bad Pyrmont's Kurpark's palm trees, the fragrance of the flowers, the peaceful atmosphere, the sound of babbling water and fountains, it's all to me like a door into a world of pure and quiet, a moment of escape into natural yet safe and regulated green. It's all good there and the park's green alone is in charge - for the duration of a break. The Kurpark is stretching to 17 hectares, and often has open air events to be happen.

    Bad Pyrmont's annual Landpartie fair at the Kurpark, offers a wide spread of cute, often antique looking boots. One can find everything whether it's decor, crafts, furniture, tablesuits, art pottery, classic clothing, Stetsons and other hats. All not on the cheap side though. Then also various of goodies, selections of tea with honey, then those booths that offer hot waffles with fresh strawberries, or chocolate in all versions possible, or sausages, and on and on. The most I love about this lovely fair is, the kind of old fashioned fun one can have.

    Never sure what to say or what to recommend about zoos. Yet Bad Pyrmont's little animals' park is really a lovely one for either animals and visitors. The fenced in animals are not too exotic but pretty local and happy acting to be there: apes, horses, ponies, storcks, owls, goats, pigs, one or two lions, bunnies, and more. The animals park's petting zoo is very nice & clean too. Folks with kids obviously very much enjoy. This place offers just another lovely opportunity to have a walk & relax. Small cafe there is inside at the entry.

    Carriage tour through Bad Pyrmont

    We were lucky to have had a beautiful, sunny Pentecoast spent in lovely Pyrmont with some nice & traditional asparagus diner. Unfortunately we missed a carriage tour. At Bad Pyrmont's Brunnenplatz (the main spring of this health resort) is the one location among others to take a carriage from, and make a tour along the historical main avenue and the oldest spa gardens of the world. Actually the spa gardens with their baroque avenues and palm gardens have become a visitor magnet. Also numerous open air events take place here annually.

    Kurpark

    The historical spa gardens are a mayor attraction in Bad Pyrmont. The earliest alleys originate from 17th century, when Bad Pyrmont was already a very popular spa with European aristocracy.

    During summer visitors can enjoy the many concerts for free. It is also very nice to walk under the beautiful palm trees of the garden.

    Fountain

    Fountains with natural mineralwater can be found all over Bad Pyrmont. Every fountain has a special purpose. So one is helpful against eye diseases, other are helpful against rheuma or heart diseases.

    Dunsthoehle

    In this place is a pond in a cave. On top of the water is a layer of deadly gas. The gas is carbon dioxide, which can be helpful against vascular diseases. But in this cave the concentration is just too much. In former times people committed suicide jumping into the pond. Now there is always somebody watching and the doors open only, when a guard accompanies the visitors.
