The 4.5-star Dorint Resort & Spa Bad Brückenau, which was once the summer residence of the Bavarian king Louis I, is set within the Naturpark Bayerische Rhoen nature reserve, which guests access for free.
There’s an impressive spa on site, spread over three floors, with an indoor and outdoor pool, mineral springs, two saunas, a saltwater cave and a steam room. There’s also a gym and two tennis courts, and treatments can be organised on request. The surrounding hills are popular with mountain bikers and hikers, and there’s skiing in the winter. Golfers have the choice of three courses nearby and the German bike museum -- the Deutsches Fahrradmuseum -- is within a 10-minute walk. There’s a bus for those who wish to explore the centre of Bad Brüeckenau, which is three miles away (extra charges apply).
There are two restaurants -- Ludwig serves lunch and dinner, and Rhönliebe serves light meals during the day and has an outdoor terrace. The Atrium Lounge is a pleasant spot for pre-dinner drinks -- in good weather, these can be served by the atrium fountain within the grounds.
The rooms are a good size and many have a balcony or terrace, with pretty park views. There’s no air conditioning but all have a safe and there’s free Wi-Fi. Rooms in the Prince Court are in the Fuerstenhof property where King Louis used to stay.
