The cultural and festival town of Bad Elster, Saxony's most traditional state spa and one of the oldest German mud spas since the days of the kings, is located in the border triangle between Bohemia, Bavaria and Saxony - in the heart of Europe. In addition to its profile as a Saxon state spa with high-quality health, spa and wellness offers, Bad Elster has become an important "Church-Saxon" cultural and festival town in recent years due to its unique "festival mile of short distances" and an outstanding event program.
