The Münder Brine Springs are wellknown since the medival ages and they were considered to support „health and pleasance“. Mid of the 1870ies, Adolf Andree, a Münder pharmacist, raised the initiative to exploit the healthy impact of the brine sources. Thus, in 1878 the Münder Brine PLC was established. Right on the area of the previous Salt Court funds were invested to construct a Spa Building, the Spa Gardens comprising a small artificial lake. These premises consists of 1.250 m² and the opening ceremony took place in May 1879. However, the completion of the three story Spa Hotel Building lasts until 1900. In 1931 the municipality of Münder took over all Spa facilities and subsequently, in 1936 the name of Münder was changed to „Bad Münder“, reflecting the privilege of a Spa granted by the German State.
In the 1990ies the Spa Gardens were expanded and turned into a more modern Landscape Park following the design developed by the famous swiss architect Dieter Kienast. It is Mr Kienast´s merit that the old and the new parts of the Spa Gardens were merged consistent, however contrasty new garden concept. Quiet zones as well as Activity parts (i.e. the Word Championship Miniature Golf Course) can be found within the Spa Gardens. Furthermore, you will find the Tourist Information (phone 05042/929804) and the modern Spa Building within the Garden complex.
