Former fountain temple

Learn interesting facts about the great past of Bad Gleichenberg, about the stories of the villas, famous guests and instructions for a successful spa stay in those days. An interesting insight into the often quite illustrious history of the traditional spa town can be found in the Curmuseum in the historic drinking fountain. With the Curmuseum, the Bad Gleichenberg Museum Association has opened a fascinating exhibition on the history and history of Gleichenberg and its distinguished guests - emperors, archdukes and noble ladies.

Where the drinking cures were held in those days, the informative Curmuseum is housed today. It is lovingly cared for by Ria Mang, who has inherited extensive historical material about the spa. The drinking fountain - the Curmuseum - as a part of the former thermal bath, is next to the Roman fountain from the 1st century after Christ witness of the long spa tradition, in which the now almost 200 years of therapeutic experience is rooted.

In 1834, more than 180 years ago, Bad Gleichenberg in the thermal and volcanic region of Styria became a health resort. This makes Bad Gleichenberg the oldest spa town in Styria. Only four years later, there were already 120 spa guests. Most of them were of noble birth, among them Emmerich Prince of Thurn and Taxis, heir to the throne Franz Ferdinand, even Emperor Franz Josef I and the writer Peter Rosegger. Early in the morning, they joined the other guests for a drinking cure in the spa park and, while strolling and promenading, drank sip after sip of the iron-free Gleichenberg water - always accompanied by the spa band.

 

Finally a museum for Bad Gleichenberg again

Due to the shelling of the Red Army on March 31, 1945, the Kurhaus at the upper Kurpark burned down completely, together with the well-stocked museum. All exhibits and written documents about the history of Bad Gleichenberg were destroyed. Thanks to the commitment of many volunteers - especially Ria Mang - it was possible that Bad Gleichenberg got its museum back after 67 years.
