After the physician Dr. Werlé from Graz had alerted him of the healing properties of the springs in the 19th century, the Styrian governor Count Mathias Constantin Capello Graf von Wickenburg, systematically set up the place to allow visitors to use the local healing springs. For the first ''season'' 1837 more than 118 guests came to relax in the spa. Bad Gleichenberg quickly became the luxury resort of the monarchy. Here the European aristocracy and prominent personalities lodged quarters in the noble hotels. Noble accommodations, soothing treatments and entertainment at daily concerts made of benevolence. In the "Green Salon", the 20-hectare spa park, Countess Emma von Wickenburg planted numerous exotic trees and shrubs. Even today, guests from near and far enjoy the historically grown biodiversity of the green lung of the remodeled Bad Gleichenberg, which since 2015 also presents with a completely restored main square. The medical facilities of the health resort are among the most modern in Austria. Especially the treatment of the respiratory tract and the skin counts, thanks to the local healing springs, to the great figureheads of the health resort Bad Gleichenberg.
