About the city
Bad Arolsen is a small green town in northern Hesse in the Waldeck-Frankenberg district. A German-Dutch tourist road called the Orange Route runs through the city, connecting cities and regions associated with the House of Orange-Nassau.
The most turbulent period of growth and construction of Bad Arolsen came in the 18th century. Therefore, the historical centre of the city is the baroque quarters. The main attraction is Arolsen Castle, built in 1713. Of particular importance are the outstanding stucco work of Andrea Gallamini and the ceiling paintings by the Italian artist Carlo Ludovico Castelli. A feature of the old layout is the Grand Alley, which was laid in 1670. The alley stretches for 1600 meters. It is bordered by six rows of oaks (more than 800 trees in total).
The city has a rather interesting civil coat of arms depicting a 9-year-old oak tree with four acorns. The oak symbolizes the surrounding forests and, indirectly, the fresh air, thanks to which Bad Arolsen is known as a climatic health resort. In addition, the town is famous for its Psychosomatic Clinic Schoen, where experienced therapists and psychologists provide high-quality medical care. The medical centre is the third largest in Germany, dealing with psychosomatic diseases.
During the warm weeks of spring, summer and autumn, many people visit the city for a walk and enjoy the shady park atmosphere. Full of historical events, Bad Arolsen attracts more and more tourists every year.
