Bad Salzig Things to Do

  • Visit the Kurhaus/Kurpark

    Bad Salzig is a spa town - I have been unable to find out much info about it's history in English but people seem to still come here to visit the Kurhaus/Kurpark (spa house/gardens).

  • Write your postcards

    There are a couple of places in Bad Salzig that sell stamps. I bought mine here at the post office. They are 45c for cards sent within Europe and the UK and if you ask for *Briefmarken mit schoenes Bildern* or *Sondermarken* you get ones with nice picures on.This is getting a bit desperate for *Things to do*!! As you can tell, there ISN'T too much...

  • Bad Salzig Bakery

    This isn't really a things to do tip but if you are wandering and feeling peckish then it's definitely worth poppin in here!They do fabulous rolls for a couple of euro - and they will fill them with whatever you fancy there and then! They also do various cakes and pastries and little marzipan pigs! Yummy! It opens around 8ish and they sell out...

  • Go to the Tourist Information Office

    It's just next door to the fire station. We went on a Friday morning and picked up a couple of brochures.

  • Go for a walk in Bad Salzig

    Bad Salzig is quite hilly so be prepared. There are some lovely buildings including the Catholic church.

  • Eating Icecream in Bad Salzig

    There's not a great deal to do in Bad Salzig. The Eiscafe opens around 11ish and is a pleasant way to while away half an hour chatting with friends and colleagues!There's a good choice of icecream and it's delicious! The tea is ok too in that *hot water -and a-weak-German-tea-bag-kind-of-way*

Bad Salzig Nightlife

  • The opposition

    Almost directly across the road from the BierGarten is Franzis' restaurant. It looked lovely all lit up in the evening and even though the locals were really friendly we chose the BierGarten. It looked a little smarter than the BierGarten so you might want to make the effort.

  • Ein Glas Weiss Wein Bitte!

    Lovely Bier garden in Bad Salzig. Friendly locals and nice publican. On a warm evening when you have had a long day exploring this beautiful part of Germany, what could be better than a glass of chilled Rhein wine, with good company? Oh some might say a BIG glass of Bitburger Bier might be better but I shall stick to the wine thanks!A glass of...

Bad Salzig Transportation

  • Waiting at the Station

    by Mariajoy Updated Jul 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are hundreds of trains going through Bad Salzig daily and especially at night or so it seems.

    So our boss and tour organiser gives us a couple of hours off. *Go and have a look at Boppard* she says *Take the train*. Not needing to be told twice we set off.

    The station is quaint and very small and un-manned. It was raining and there were no other passengers waiting. We JUST missed a train.... but that's ok... there's hundreds...... usually. We eventually worked out the ticket machine and paid our 1.35 Euro for the one stop to Boppard (it only takes a minute or two to travel the short distance to the next town).

    We waited and waited and even asked a passerby (locals use the underpass to get across the railway line). *Yes* she said... this is where you get the train to Boppard. We waited some more. Then after checking the timetable... found that the next train to Boppard was another 45 mins!!!! Our boss was expecting us back for lunch..... We never did get there by train :((

    How do we get a ticket refund in in un-manned station???

Bad Salzig Local Customs

  • Buying Cigarettes

    I was amazed that these cigarette machines were everywhere in this tiny town. EVERY street had one and the main street had at least two. Depending on what machine you went to, a packet of ciggies cost 3.50-4 Euro. These machines on the street are a thing of the past in the UK because they would just be vandalised.I still can't believe such a tiny...

  • Putting the *Bad* in Bad Salzig

    Bad Salzig is a spa town. Here are the cool refreshing/healing/cleansing spa waters. Don't you feel better just looking at it?? :)) People pay a fortune to stay at the hotel here.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Bad Salzig Warnings and Dangers

  • Water water everywhere - but a glass of...

    Our hotelier charges 1euro for a glass of tap water. I have no idea if this normal practise in German restaurants/hotels but it surprised some in our group.Have something else instead - like tea. At least you know they have had to heat the water up first!

  • Rhein Valley Trains

    Our lovely hotel was situated VERY close to the railway line which runs along the banks of the Rhein. The lines also run parallel on the opposite bank and the sound carries quite clearly. This was quite a problem at night because the trains seem to be even more frequent in the early hours. They are mostly freight trains and they are often 20-30...
