Cure and health
A healthy climate, an attractive landscape and a wonderful little town - you instantly feel at ease in Braunfels. Braunfels is an important destination for people to enjoy a cure and healthy lifestyle. The medical institutions in Braunfels enjoy an excellent reputation. We have a specialist neurological clinic offering rehabilitation, the orthopaedic clinic and the Falkeneck hospital. Braunfels has been granted the title "Luftkurort" because of its climatically favourable position amidst densely wooded countryside on the northern edge of the Hochtaunus Nature Park region. The high purity of the air comes from the lack of industrialisation and from the abundance of woods and open countryside. The extensive walking trails, the facilities for medical treatment and open countryside, a facility to carry out a Kneipp's cure and the amazing stainless steel swimming pool offer you therapeutic alternatives to the rat race.
For more than 80 years the tourist information centre has sold "Karlssprudel" mineral water which comes from the community Leun-Biskirchen, 6km away from Braunfels. The water is considered excellent for recuperation from diseases of the intestines, stomach and malfunctions of the liver, gall bladder, kidneys, bladder and the respiratory system. Sports enthusiasts also like this water because of its well-balanced mineral content.
