AD Nauheim is situated in the fertile district of
the Wetterati, on the western slope of Hjohannis-
bergf' a spur of the Taunus Mountains, and on the
river Usa. A shady avenue, bordered on both sides
by beautiful villas, leads from the station, east of
the town, to thelhot springs CSprudelD and to the
baths, half encircling these, and ending on the north
at the terrace of the "Kurhaus": on the south it
touches the "Parka1lee,', an avenue leading to the
foot of the Johannisberg. The large and shady
park, covering- an area of more than 300 acres C105
hectaresj, terminates on the north in the big lakeg
on the south, east, and west, it runs up to the
streets of the town.
Records as well as discoveries--for instance, salt
pans made during excavations-have proven that
Nauheim was a settlement at the very earliest
On the first of July, 1835, the opening of a new
brine bath establishment at Nauheim was announced.
Since that time the population has increased wonder-
fully, and Bad Nauheim is now a world-renowned
health resort. In 1835, there were 1,235 visitors.
while they now average over 50,000 each year.
The official season lasts from May lst to Septem-
ber 30th, but some of the bath houses are open in
April and October.
The Bath Cure.-Nauheim belongs, as far as its
bathing springs are concerned, to the ferruginous,
very highly carbonated thermal saline waters. The
natural heat is between 86 and 94 degrees lf. Its
efficacious properties are due to this and the amount
of thermal salt, chloride of calcium, and other chlor-
ine salts-2.5 to 3.3 per cent, of which 2.1 to 2.9 per
cent is thermal salt: also iron and other numeral

salts. The amount of carbonic acid gas is of great
importance, and, corresponding to the variety in
administering different forms of baths, is large or
small in the most varied gradations. The bath water
is supplied by three very abundant Sprudel springs,
Nos. VII, X-Xl, and XIV, so named according to
their order of borings, which rise from a depth,
respectively, of 530, 1500, and 690 feet, and, owing
to the strength of the CCL, when the stopcock is
opened, are driven to a height of 50 feet above the
surface of the ground. lfrom these springs alone
6,000 baths could be given daily.
Types of Baths.-Sprudel Bath.-The water of the
springs is brought through conduits leading from the
upper tube into the bath direct, without coming into
contact with the outer air, so that it preserves its full
amount of ca1'bonic acid gas.
Thermal Sprudel Bath.-lly direct branch con-
nection with the upper tube, a portion of the Sprudel
water is conducted into closed reservoirs, stored
therein, and afterwards used for the so-called Thermal
Sprudel baths. The water loses very little CCL.
Thermal Bath.-The Sprudel water which Hows
out of the upper tubes of the Sprudel is collected in
large reservoirs. On being left exposed to the air.
a portion of the carbonic acid evaporates, the
iron and calcium salts are deposited, and a brownish
yellow Huid now forms, called Thermal llrine, which
is used to prepare the Thermal baths.
Stream Bath.-lily means of a special contrivance
attached to the baths, it is possible to arrange., for
stream baths with continuous in and out How of the
water: Sprudel, Thermal Sprudel, and Thermal
Brine Bath.-These llrine baths fSaalbaderj are
supplied from the Thermal water of the springs,
which is freed from iron and calcium salts, as well
as carbonic acid, by the process of "graduation,"
Owing to the manifold variety, it is possible to
prescribe baths just as they are suited to the indi-
vidual necessity of the case.
