At the beginning of March, we shake off the winter with a huge show: tens of thousands of people line the streets at the horse market festival procession, when hundreds of horses, riders, horse and carriages, and bands make their way through the town.
Welcome to Each and Every Season
It doesn’t matter when you come to us, Bad Mergentheim is always an experience. But what makes a holiday destination an all year-round destination? We believe it is: when you can sense that a town does not stand still, but instead gets involved in new ideas. when you don’t get bored, even when the weather is bad. when you have the feeling of falling in love all over again, even after several visits.
Enjoy the beautiful countryside of the ‘Charming Tauber Valley’ to the full, whether that be on the premium walking trails or the superbly-developed network of cycle paths. Bad Mergentheim is situated directly on the ‘Classic Tauber Valley’ cycle route, one of only two five-star cycle paths in the whole of Germany.
You can enjoy the inspiring colours of autumn in the picturesque vineyards of the Markelsheim district. Here, you can taste the best wines in cosy wine bars and rustic taverns. The trees in the park and along the scene also start to light up.
Magical, decorated old-town façades and an illuminated castle: with the start of the pre-Christmas period, Bad Mergentheim slips into its festive outfit. Christmas markets invite you to browse, enjoy and discover with its special atmosphere. And besides, there are a few things on offer here in Advent.
In Bad Mergentheim, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, you’ll always find committed hosts, excellent regional cuisine, and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There is just one more question: when are you coming?
