The Gesundbrunnen Sagard was once a spa and bathing establishment in Sagard on the island of Rügen. Opened in 1795, the Bathing & Leisure Establishment made Sagard the first bathing resort on the island of Rügen and established a health spa operation, which took place until about 1830.
A small wood near Sagard is called "Brunnenaue". It reminds of eleven years of lively spa and bathing life. Pastor Heinrich Christoph von Willich opened the first health resort of Rügen here in 1795. An area with several springs was prepared as a picturesque park. Walking paths led along the creek with small waterfalls and past seating areas and arbors. There were game tables and a merry-go-round, swings and seesaws, and you could also try your hand at a bowling alley.
In the bathhouse, various hot and cold baths were set up for a medical therapy program. Music and dance performances rounded out the visit. Today, little remains from the period between 1794 and 1806, when hundreds of guests came here in the summer for medical treatment and recreation. Only the field name "Brunnenaue" has remained. The small wood with the meandering brook still gives a vague idea of this short era.
