"Einst und jetzt" - Historischer Rundgang durch Bad Gleichenberg

Experience the eventful history of Bad Gleichenberg on the historical circuit and compare once and now! Designed by the Curmuseumsverein!
In 1834, the governor of Styria, Imperial Count Mathias Constantin von Wickenburg, founded the spa of Bad Gleichenberg. He had the local healing springs tapped and systematically laid out the resort. Very quickly Bad Gleichenberg developed into one of the most sought-after and prestigious health resorts in the monarchy. Members of the European ruling dynasties, international nobility, high bourgeoisie and important military officers populated the place during the "season", which at that time lasted from May to September.

Bad Gleichenberg is still full of traces of this great past. The Curmuseumsverein works to keep this history alive and make it accessible to the public. At several stations you can follow an exciting journey of discovery of the fascinating history of Bad Gleichenberg.
