Refreshing perspectives: 
Kurbad Jungborn & Kollektivcafé

On the eastern bank of the Fulda, right next to the suspension bridge, you'll find the historic Kurbad Jungborn - Kassel's only surviving river pool. Although during the 19th-century, people mainly bathed here for recreation, the building was later used as a public purification bath and for medical treatments until the 20th century. Visitors to the Kassel Bademuseum can now take an entertaining tour through the history of the private and public baths that existed all over Germany in one form or another. The café offers homemade cakes and delicious refreshments, which you can enjoy on the cosy café terrace with its great view of the Fulda river.

How refreshing: 
Kasseler Bademuseum

Do you enjoy a quick shower to start the day? There was a time when this would have been out of the question. Until the post-war period, very few people could afford the luxury of having their own bathroom. Back then, if you wanted to stay fresh and clean, you had to grab your towel and soap and go to a public bath like the Kurbad Jungborn, which was used as a public bath for decades. Experience first-hand the bathing culture of yesteryear in the Kassel Bademuseum, which has been lovingly restored inside the listed building: This includes a faithfully restored cabin from the old spa for visitors to experience. There is also a replica of a private bathroom from the 1930s, complete with original parts and fixtures from the (good) old days. You are sure to see your morning shower in a completely different light ...

Kollektivcafé Kurbad:
An alternative for connoisseurs

Also located in the premises is the café Kollektivcafé Kurbad. In this cosy atmosphere, you can enjoy aromatic coffee and delicious cakes at fair prices, courtesy of the Kaufungen municipality and a vegan caterer from Kassel. Alternatively, you can relax with a glass of wine and snacks on the café terrace in the evening and watch the hustle and bustle along the Fulda. Visitors can also look forward to a wide range of events at the Kollektivcafé.
