Spring

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.

Who will find the first signs of spring in the spa park? By the end, there will be up to a million flowers in early blossom. And it’s not just there where a blaze of colour is bursting forth: you’ll walk through a beautiful boulevard of blossoming fruit trees in the castle park, too. And if the sun is still a bit hesitant, it will always send its golden rays down from the highest point of the fascinating ‘Bewarttreppe’ in the castle - a spiral staircase by Blasius Bewart.

Our guests can get into shape for the spring with free water gymnastics courses in the Solymar Therme. Here, you can swim lengths in the sports pool whilst also getting your body beach-ready for the summer. In the Wildpark, hibernation is coming to an end for some of the animal families – the young animals in particular are already a bit inquisitive about their first visitors.
