Bad Schandau is a health and holiday resort in Saxon Switzerland. The Romantic Theodor Körner named the health resort Bad Schandau a "place of nature’s strength and splendour." Beautifully situated at the point where the river Kirnitzsch flows in the Elbe, the town was the first to receive holiday guests in Saxon Switzerland.

Bad Schandau is located in the middle of the landscape conservation area Saxon Switzerland with its adjoining National Park, and it is set against the Schrammsteine, an impressive formation of great soaring rocks of unspoilt beauty. The bizarre shapes of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, the romantic course of the river Elbe and the deep valley of the mountain stream Kirnitzsch are outstanding creations of nature.

Two modern rehabilitation clinics contribute to the spa character of the town. Outpatients seeking improved fitness, or treatment for functional cardiovascular diseases, exhaustion or dysfunction of basic processes, have at their disposal a spa doctor, the clinics, and outpatient treatment facilities.

Various cure arrangements combine the encounter with the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, walks and the exploring of sights, with relaxation.
