Bad Aibling ( (help·info)) is a spa town and former district seat in Bavaria (Germany) on the river Mangfall, located some 35 miles southeast of Munich. It is a health resort (peat pulp bath and mineral spa).
Bad Aibling and its surroundings were settled by Celtic tribes from about 500 BC until 15 BC. After Roman occupation it was finally settled by Bavarii tribes in the 5th century AD. In 804, Bad Aibling was mentioned for the first time as "Epininga". In mediaeval times it was an administrative centre in the lordship of the Counts of Falkenstein. After the obliteration of the Neuburg-Falkenstein dynasty it became part of the realm of the Wittelsbach family.
In 1845 the first treatments with peat pulp were offered by the physician Desiderius Beck. Bad Aibling received the title "Bad" (spa or springs) in 1895.
In the year 1933 Bad Aibling officially became a city. After the Second World War Bad Aibling was the site of POW Discharge Center #26, where German POWs were released from captivity to civilian status. Later the area evolved into a major centre for intelligence organizations and secret services.
