When you arrive in the small German town of Bad Aibling, you’ll find yourself surrounded by picturesque rolling hills, charming colonial buildings, and cobblestone streets. The town is nestled along the River Mangfall, about 35 miles southeast of Munich, and has a long history as a haven for the country’s chronically ill. The German word “bad” (pronounced “bart”) translates directly to the English “spa,” in reference to the local springs whose waters were thought to have healing powers as early as 1845.
