explore Bad Mergentheim
in every season.

Four seasons


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.


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.
