Bad Schönborn is famous for being a health resort with mineral springs, and this spa offers the largest roofed swimming area in Germany to people with all kinds of diseases, e.g. rheumatism.
In 1971, two previous towns Bad Langenbrücken and Bad Mingolsheim were combined, and the town was named Bad Schönborn after Damian Hugo von Schönborn, archbishop of Speyer (1719–1743), who built Kislau Castle in Bad Mingolsheim.
Archbishop Franz Christoph von Hutten founded the sulphur spa in Bad Langenbrücken in 1766.
