Bad Wiessee

Trip Planner Europe  /  Germany  /  Bavaria  /  Upper Bavaria  /  Bad Wiessee
Bad Wiessee is a spa town on Lake Tegernsee, Bavaria, Germany. The word "Bad" means "spa" or "baths", while "Wiessee" derives from "Westsee", meaning "western part of the lake".Bad Wiessee is known for its healing sulfur-fountain, discovered by the Dutch oil explorer Adriaan Stoop. People spend their holidays in Bad Wiessee because of its quiet atmosphere and its location at the north side of the Alps.Bad Wiessee is notorious as the scene of the key events within the Night of the Long Knives, 30 June 1934, when Hitler and the Schutzstaffel (SS) purged the leadership of the Sturmabteilung (SA), many of whom were staying at the resort. The key leaders Ernst Röhm, Anton von Hohberg und Buchwald, Karl Ernst, Edmund Heines and Peter von Heydebreck were arrested and taken to Stadelheim Prison where they were later executed.Bad Wiessee was also the retirement home, in 1939–1945, of Field Marshal Werner von Blomberg, author of the "Hitler oath".
