The first spa was built in this valley in 1701. Aristocratic travelers from across Europe visited the site. The spa community achieved prominence on August 27, 1786 when the world’s first academic scientific congress was held here. The congress was attended by notable intellectuals, including Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The current spa complex dates from the early 1900s.
