Bad Lippspringe is always praised for its floral attractions and when the town entered in the Federal competition, "Our Town is blooming" for the first time, it was awarded the gold medal. The jury was truly impressed by the great variety of events and the innovative and impressive activities around the pedestrian precinct and parks. Following this great success, the town organises most colourful events for its residents and visitors. Enjoy the array of flowers throughout the town and in the Spa parks. The 'Kaiser-Karls-Park' with its splendid flower arrangements and illuminated fountains has been designed with particular care and attention to detail. Every August the park is the venue for its traditional park illuminations.
The Bad Lippspringe Spa Forest extends across an area of 200 hectares from the exit of the Kaiser Karl’s Park. 25 kilometres of flat-country rambling routes and many benches make it an ideal place for recuperation. The Mersmann Ponds, the Chapel of Peace and the Fisher Hut (Fischerhütte) restaurant are popular venues for a well-deserved rest on route.
The Armenius Park to the east of the town was designed in the English style; it delights with its expanse, its ancient trees and generous Greens, where walkers are welcome to step onto the grass and enjoy the spacious ambience. An artificially created ‘meadow of mist’ forms part of the ‘Communication Park’ project designed to experience the subject of health at first hand.
Once a year, over the Whit weekend, the Armenius Park hosts the popular Park Festival. The ‘Prince’s Palace’, an historic manor house at the edge of the park was built as the ‘new Spa House’ in 1854 / 1855. From here, visitors can meander into the neighbouring Jordan Park, where the characteristics of a natural forest site have been retained; one of its added features is an outdoor water-play park, which is hugely popular with the children, especially during the summer months.
