Historical Description

According to legend, the healing properties of the sulfur spring were discovered by hunters who noticed the recovery of a deer drinking from it. Shepherds and farmers are said to have used the source since then. The bath was first mentioned in a document in 1490. The old bathhouse was built in 1511 under Abbot Heinrich V von Tegernsee. In 1818 Maximilian I Joseph, King of Bavaria, together with the secularized Tegernsee monastery also acquired the Wildbad Kreuth and had the current building erected.
