Bad Berka is a lovely little town in the Weimar region of Thuringia. I found a nice accommodation in nearby Kranichfeld and decided to stay there for two nights to explore also the surroundings and to work on our tourist guide.
It was very hot in June and the older Audi which was given to me by my son did not have air condition. Please consider this when renting a car!

Please follow always the signs "Altstadt" whenever you come into a city. "Altstadt" guides you to the old downtown. If you do not so you miss everything interesting!
I found parking close to downtown. Unfortunately the allowed parking time was very limited and I had to rush. Don't make the same mistake. Find a better place to park.
We recommend that you first visit the "Kurverwaltung" where you can collect some information about the attractions of Bad Berka. If you want to do some for your health ask here! The term "Bad" as part of the name does not mean bad - it means the place is certified as a place to improve your health. It is mandatory to fulfill many criteria to get this title.
I am not a fanatic in following all the steps of famous people of the past. But for those who are - Thuringia offers a great deal. Bad Berka for example is very proud that Johann Wolfgang von Goethe had spent some time here.
I just strolled around, took some pictures, admired how nicely everything looked. I think I was the only visitor at this time and also the local people were hiding somewhere.
But I liked the little town and regretted that I could not enjoy a nice bowl of ice cream.

You see it was early in the morning. I could not see anybody in the restaurants. The real "continental breakfast" which I had enjoyed in the B & B in Kranichfeld made it also easy for me to proceed with my tour and not to stop.

I would have loved to stop for a bowl of ice cream

The village was mentioned the first time in 1119 which means it had along time to grow.
It was a pleasure to walk through the old town. As already mentioned I only saw a few local people and no tourists.
Most of the houses had been renovated. I am always amazed what has been achieved since the reunification of Germany. The majority of East and West Germans accept this, but a few wish the old times back, similar to Russia. What can you do against that stupidity?
Bad Berka does not have a wellness center with spa. However they offer treatments against digestion problems by drinking water from a special well. (Goethebrunnen) Please ask for detailed information at the "Kurzentrum".
Bad Berka is certainly another place where I would love to stay to explore the surrounding area.
You may get better rates and do not have the stress of finding always a new accommodation and packing and unpacking.
