The Spa Center of the spa for therapeutic mud, mineral and Kneipp therapies is embedded within an idyllic park and landscaped area and there are many historical as well as modern sights to be discovered. For example, the historical spa park, the art nouveau Kurhaus, the Kneipp Therapy Centre as well as the Kurmittelhaus (central spa building) all offer a variety of possibilities for relaxation, health and enjoying nature.
The Spa Center uses three locally found remedies from Bad Schmiedeberg which have proven to have a high therapeutic quality when combined with the great medical and therapeutic expertise to be found there. These have been used in treatments for over 140 years.
The long tradition of using the therapeutic mud found in Bad Schmiedeberg for orthopaedic and gynaecological treatments since 1878 has made the town famous around the world as an officially recognised health spa. Radon is used as a remedy as well as the two locally found therapeutic waters – named Kurfürsten water and Margarethen water – which have been utilised for therapeutic purposes since 1999 when the central spa building - the Kurmittelhaus was opened, imparting great wellbeing and restored health to the guests of the spa. In 2015, the Moritz Hauswald water, named after the founder of the spa, was opened in the spa park and is accessible to spa guests and visitors alike.
