at PARKHOTEL Helene - Bad Elster

Your three-star superior comfort hotel in a stylish ambience

“Light and air, forest and water, salt and moor and above all the delicious peace,
these are the seven healing factors of Bad Elster.”

(from the Vogtland hiking guide from 1924)

In 1848 Bad Elster became a "Royal Saxon State Spa".

The renowned Saxon state spa Bad Elster in the border triangle of Bohemia, Bavaria and Saxony welcomes you in a mundane and splendid way. After Bad Elster was first mentioned in a document in 1324, the first spring was medically examined here in 1669 and dedicated to the then sovereign Duke Moritz of Saxony-Zeitz. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe also paid tribute to this healing spring in his epic poem “Herrmann und Dorothea”.

Bathing and cultural activities finally began in Bad Elster at the beginning of the 19th century. Bad Elster was elevated to the status of “Royal Saxon State Spa” in 1848, making it one of the most traditional and renowned spas in Germany. Above all, the naturally occurring, highly effective moor and the bubbling mineral and carbonic acid springs established the more than 160-year spa tradition.

The splendid spa architecture

testifies to the royal past and still enchants you today with a unique nostalgic flair of bathhouse, art nouveau villas and the more than 60 hectare large historic spa park, which has been under nature conservation since 1980.
Bad Elster owes its reputation as a cultural and festival town with international flair to its outstanding cultural offerings. The seven historic event venues (“festival mile of short distances”), such as the famous King Albert Theater, the representative Royal Spa House, the Kunstwandelhalle, the Nature Theater and the three music pavilions, are located in park landscapes and offer a wonderful, unique ambience for this.
