Soothing salt note in the nose

Do you like to breathe in salty air? You can do so along Bad Dürkheim’s 333 m long and 18 m high salt works, built in 1846. More than 200,000 bundles of brushwood are stacked into stable walls over which salt water from a medicinal spring trickles and evaporates. The salty droplets are good for the lungs and bronchial tubes. In addition, the evaporation pleasantly cools the ambient air in summer. So you can “kill two birds with one stone”: on hot summer days you can relax here very nicely and marvel at the imposing structure.
