Bad Kötzting - A "Kneipp" health resort

Bad Kötzting (Bad Koetzting) is located within the Nature Recreation Park "Upper Bavarian Forest" on the border to the Czech Republic. Tourism was initiated here in the years following regional reorganization with special emphasis being placed on health, relaxation and recuperation. In this vein, the very first German Clinic for Traditional Chinese Medicine, institutions for "Kneipp" hydropathic treatment and the Rehabilitation Centre for Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Neurology were opened.

In addition to that, the Adult Education Centre in the Cham Administrative District e.V. founded a central instruction facility for gerontology. When Kötzting was officially named a spa on 10th December 2005, its name changed to "Bad Kötzting"

A state-managed Casino was opened in February 2000.

Present-day Bad Kötzting is the result of the population´s remarkable, future-oriented sense of citizenship that finds its counterpart in the vigour and courage of its domestic industries.



The town is well-known for its cultural life and festivals, particularly for its unmistakeable atmosphere.

Apart from the annual Whit Ride and the Whitsun Festival Week, the open air theatre festival has become another outstanding event in the festival calendar of the region. The unprepossessing small provincial town has turned into a modern trading and service centre today.
