More about the History of Bad Wurzach

The town was first notarial vouched on the 13th of June in the year 1273 as "Oppidum Wurzun". On the 27th of May in 1333 "Kaiser Ludwig der Bayer Hans Truchsess von Waldburg granted the settlement of "Wurzun" the city-rights of Memmingen, a much larger city nearby (25 kilometers). With that upgrade the town gained the rights for lower jurisdiction, the right to hold markets, and the right and duty to erect a surrounding wall to protect itself. In 1514 the "Leinwandschau" (Examination) was established. In 1515 the construction of the nunnery "Maria Rosengarten" began. Its well preserved main tracts still stand today. On April 14 in 1525 it came to a battle between peasants in the scope of the then raging Peasants' War on the "Leprosenberg" (Leper Hill) just outside the gates of the town. In the year 1637 only 19 people still lived in the town due to the effects and consequences of the Thirty Years' War and plagues. In 1675 the governance of Waldburg-Zeil-Wurzach" was established. In 1806 the governance of Wurzach became part of the state governance of Württemberg and was allocated to the Oberamt Leutkirch (administrative district of Leutkirch), a neighboring larger town. In 1813 and 1814 during the liberation war 35,301 soldiers were being taken care of in Wurzach. The "Leprosenhaus" (Leper House) located on the aforementioned Leprosenberg functioned as military hospital for 4,003 men. In 1903 the governance of Waldburg-Zeil-Wurzach ceased to exist.

In 1904 the railway-line Rossberg-Wurzach was opened. In 1936 the first moor-bath treatments were made available in the nunnery "Maria Rosengarten". Due to the anulment of the administrative district of Leutkirch in the year 1938 Wurzach became part of the county Wangen. In 1950 the city was granted the predicate of "Bad" along with regimen honors. With the county reform of 1972 the communities aforementioned in the town classification became part of the town of Bad Wurzach. Since 1996 the town underwent extensive restorations and repairs, as well as modernizing constructions, in the scope of a reconditioning program.
