About Bad Salzdetfurth
Bad Salzdetfurth is a recognized state health resort with approximately 13,000 inhabitants in part of the natural region of the Lower Saxon Highlands. The city is a regionally significant recreational, medical and industrial place.
The historic old town has numerous half-timbered houses, some of which were built as early as the 17th century. Innerste river flows through the city area and the Walshausen estate in a westerly direction. The city's landscape is complemented by the highest Bozenberg mountain in the Salzdetfurter forest at a height of 339 meters and a 17-meter observation tower from 1956. Kunstverein Bad Salzdetfurth has been organizing group exhibitions of works by artists from all over Europe in the art building of Bodenburg Castle since 1998. In addition, spa concerts are regularly held in the resort gardens.
The first documentary mention of the city dates back to 1194. The inhabitants of the city were probably salt producers. Local legend says that Knight Steinberg got lost while hunting a deer. In the agony of thirst, he came across a salty spring and was initially saddened, and then realized what wealth this discovery could bring him. The knight sent for the salt shakers, who cleared the forest and set up cauldrons with salt shakers. The leading HELIOS network also contributed to the city's development and actively used the healing properties of the local nature. The modern cardiology, orthopedic and geriatric VAMED Rehabilitation Clinic Bad Salzdetfurth has been accepting patients since 1983 and is constantly expanding its services.
Bad Salzdetfurth is a city that continues to develop and is open to new ideas and guests. The activity of the residents and the rich social life in the form of charity concerts, fairs, and festivals contrast with the calm landscapes and cozy atmosphere.
