The Johannisbad is a unique architectural gem.
It combines the periods of Art Nouveau and neo-Gothic with a touch of oriental bathing culture and nowadays houses a swimming pool, sauna and a modern wellness area. The building on the Mulde River was originally conceived by the director of the hospitals.
Dr Samuel Schlobig opened a spa and sanatorium in 1869. After an extension, the entire complex of the Johannisbad was inaugurated in 1904.
In 1991 the complex had to be closed due to dilapidation. The commitment of residents, private companies and the city provided the basis for the rescue. Within the framework of the European Urban project, the unique monument was extensively renovated.
The building, which shines in its former splendour, the Art Nouveau interior and the numerous activities on offer have since then - and rightly so - drawn much admiration from guests.
