Wilhelmsbad is a large park and spa located in the city of Hanau, Germany. The park covers an area of over 160 hectares and is one of the most popular outdoor destinations in the area.  Wilhelmsbad was originally designed in the late 18th century as a pleasure park for the Landgrave Wilhelm IX of Hesse-Kassel. The park features extensive gardens, artificial castle ruins, pyramid, fountains, and a picturesque lake, and was once a popular destination for the German aristocracy.

Today, the park is open to the public and is a great place to relax and enjoy nature. Visitors can go for a stroll through the gardens, have a picnic by the lake, or take a ride on the park’s historic miniature train. There are also several restaurants and cafes in the park where visitors can enjoy a meal or a drink.

One of the main attractions in Wilhelmsbad is the historic spa complex. The complex was built in the late 18th century and features a large pool, sauna, and steam rooms. Visitors can enjoy a range of wellness treatments and therapies, including massages and hydrotherapy.

You can take a guided tour of the park. This runs from April to October, first Saturday of the month (Adults: 5,00 €), book on the website.
