Not only do guests find tranquility and rest in our modern, state-acknowledged spa and a place for their holiday, but we also strive to make our town attractive particularly for our inhabitants as well.

The activity of Spa Bad Lauterberg in Harz started in a hydropathic home in 1839.

The spa has become the most significant spa in North Germany due to the consistent development of spa facilities by spa enterprises and additional facilities of the town. In our town, it is possible to take full use of the spa services all year round.

Schroth, a type of treatment named after doctor Johann Schroth, became a great success when it was implemented in Bad Lauterberg in Harz in 1982.

The surroundings of the town are very charming. The Oder Dam is 5 km long and it offers all possibilities of water sports. The dam is a paradise for fishermen and thanks to its boat harbour it is also a meeting place for people who like camping, sailing and windsurfing.

There is also the pond of Wiesenbeker, a mountain lake with a camp and a suitable place for bathing.

A nature trail through forests was opened for visitors on the Kirchberg Hill as another leisure time facility, as well as the former mine of Aufrichtigkeit/Scholmzeche close to the medical park. Benches, places for barbecue, cabins, places to have a rest and wading pools along the footpath invite to stop by. The lookout tower of Bismarckturm on the Kummel hill, the hill of Hausberg, the ruin of the Scharzfel castle, the Unicorn Cave or Lutter Valley are attractive destinations for trips. In winter there are various possibilities for winter sports, which enrich the existing offer of past-time activities even more.

A library, reading room, writing room, rooms for gymnastics, training and sport are available for the guests of Bad Lauterberg in its guest house which is located in the spa park.

The center of the town houses other treasures of our town: the National History Museum, the German Museum about diabetes on the Kirchberg hill, and the Museum about metalwork.
