The river Urff flows through the southwest constituent communities of Hundsdorf, Armsfeld and Bergfreiheit.

The nearest large towns are Kassel (about 35 km; northeast), Marburg (Marburg vacation rentals | Marburg travel guide) (about 60 km; southwest) and Korbach (Korbach vacation rentals | Korbach travel guide) (about 28 km; northwest).

More about the History of Bad Wildungen

Bad Wildungen's first documentary mention came about 800 from the Hersfeld Monastery's goods directory under the name "villa Wildungun". This place lay in the Wilde Valley, east of today's main town. About 1200, a castle was built by the Thuringian Landgraves, around which Alt-Wildungen ("High Wildungen") (from lat. altus = high) developed. In 1242, Nieder-Wildungen ("Lower Wildungen"), which had been founded on the hill facing the castle, was granted town rights. From 1263, the castle and the two Wildungen towns were owned by the Counts – later Princes – of Waldeck, who only abdicated after the First World War (see Principality of Waldeck). In 1358, the two Wildungen towns were mentioned.

In 1906, the town of Nieder-Wildungen was given the new name Bad Wildungen. In 1940, Bad Wildungen was given the title of "Preußisches Staatsbad" ("Prussian State Bath").
