Bad Saarow is a municipality in the Oder-Spree district, in Brandenburg, Germany.

The place is known for its hot springs and for its mineral rich mud. Their healing properties have attracted visitors for many years, and in 1923 led to the town's name acquiring the prefix "Bad".

Nearby are the Dubrower Berge a range of wooded hills popular with hikers and cyclists.
