I had no idea what this was when I saw it from the parking lot. We walked towards it and realized it was water flowing down through sticks. We paid 1.50€ per adult to visit inside thinking there was more to see or some history...More

amazing place to visit and take in the sites. Can't believe the annual winefest is held in the wurstmarkt parking lot. It seems so small but when you visit the fest, it looks gigantic.

As far as I know the last existing Saline in Germany. And in my opinion really worth a visit. It's nice to take a little walk around the Saline and inhale the fresh air.

This is quite a feature in the town and a strange sensation to walk around, and realise that by the time you have done so, you are "salty". A huge, impressive structure.

A short walk around but nonetheless very interesting and definitely worth a visit if in the area. Fairly cheap to get in

Part of the local "cure park' this two story plus structure is built to add salt to the air for the purpose of helping with health issues. Neat structure and idea. Worth a walk around!

Breathe in the salty air from the mineral waters as they dash over huge bundles of twigs...worth the relaxing wander along the 330m building.

On of the more unusual tourist attractions! It's an interesting way to spend one and a half euros. The peace on feels walking by the cascading droplets of water is quite strange. This attraction helps Bad Durkheim retain its unique feel. Been there, got the...More

Installed at the entrance of town this interesting construction allow people to inhale the saline water while walking around. The original one burned a few years ago (it's all in wood) but it was rebuild as an exact copy.
