Bad Düben

Situated on the banks of the Mulde north of Leipzig, the spa town of Bad Düben is an enchanting place for visitors from far and wide. Whether you want to explore its eventful history, enjoy the beautiful scenery, stroll through the old town with its small shops, cafés and restaurants, or wait at the town hall clock tower for the goats to appear when the hour strikes – welcome to Bad Düben!

The key landmark is the 1000-year-old Düben Castle, which the town and the surrounding region are both named after. This historic building is closely associated with names such as Hans Kohlhase, Heinrich von Kleist, King Gustav II Adolf of Sweden and Napoleon. The castle now houses the Düben Heath Landscape Museum and features a restored ship mill in the former moat. Alongside the usual tourist and nature reserve information, the new nature reserve visitor centre hosts a multimedia exhibition created by the Düben Heath nature reserve on the topics of "Experience Wild Animals", "Home and Nature" and "Climate Change".

Bad Düben is a state-recognised moor spa. The therapeutic powers of the natural moor are also highly prized at the HEIDE SPA in Bad Düben. Here you can dive into Saxony’s biggest spa complex and be pampered from head to toe.
