Trip Planner Europe  /  Germany  /  Hesse  /  Bad Orb
Bad Orb is a spa town in the Main-Kinzig district, in Hessen, Germany. It is situated 32 km east of Hanau, between forested hills in the Nature Park Spessart, one of the largest forested areas in Germany. The historic trading route and modern day hiking trail Eselsweg ("donkey trail") that runs to Großheubach in Miltenberg Kreis from Schlüchtern passes Bad Orb. In the past, this route was used to transport salt to the Main River. The first salt deposits were discovered in 650 BC. Bad Orb is also home to the Frankfurter Schullandheim Wegscheide, a summer camp for children founded in 1920 on the grounds of the former army training camp, and the Spessart Clinic, a children's hospital founded in 1884.GeographyNeighboring CommunitiesIn the north, Bad Orb borders on the cities Wächtersbach and Bad Soden-Salmünster; in the east, Spessart region; in the south, Jossgrund; and in the west, Biebergemünd.Twinned with: Istra, Russia
