A perfect day in Bad Ems
Here are our ideas for you to create an unforgettable day in Bad Ems.
Gazing at the Kursaal building
Start your Bad Ems day with a visit to the magnificent marble hall and take a look at the Kurtheater. This is where kings and emperors once celebrated during their holidays and enjoyed art and culture.
Trying Emser Kränchen
No day in Bad Ems can be complete without having tasted the healing spring water! Make a detour to the Brunnenhalle and taste the probably most famous spring of Bad Ems, the Emser Kränchen.
Ride on the cable railway
Now you can take one of the steepest funicular railways in the world over the roofs of the Kaiserbad. The trip to Bismarckhöhe is an experience, and the view from the top even more so.
On the Bismarckhöhe you can refuel yourself for the rest of the day in the panorama restaurant and enjoy the view.
Walking back to the spa district
From the top station of the Kurwaldbahn you can walk back to the spa district in about half an hour. Depending on how good you are at walking, you can make a side trip, for example to the Ernst-Vogler lookout point. Of course you can also return by cable railway.
Visiting the spa & town museum
Have you ever seen the love letter of a tsar to his mistress or the original roulette table from Germany's oldest casino? There is an incredible amount to see and marvel at one of the most traditional seaside resorts in Europe.
Coffee & cake or an ice cream
