Modernisation and extension of Bad Wimpfen brine pool
published in sb magazine 6/2022
Together with the health clinic, hotel and spa hall, the brine pool is part of a building ensemble in the resort town of Bad Wimpfen. To make the existing facility dating from the 1970s fit for the future, the spa has been atmospherically redesigned and extended in the style of the existing pool, and the entire pool equipment has been upgraded. The client commissioned the Stuttgart-based 4a Architekten with a preliminary study and the design.
The spa town of Bad Wimpfen owes its long tradition and good reputation as a health resort primarily to the curative properties of brine. With the founding of the first spa hotel in 1835, the town developed into a health resort and today‘s spa centre comprising a clinic, hotel and spa hall. At the end of the 1970s, the brine pool designed by the Stuttgart architects Geier+Geier was added as the centrepiece of the building ensemble.
