A bathhouse was erected in 1650 which marked the beginning of the spa. Count Lajos Batthyány obtained the spa in 1752. Under Count Ferenc Batthyány, Tatzmannsdorf (hungarian: Tarcsafürdő) became the most important spa in the Kingdom of Hungary. The predicate Bad (spa) was awarded in 1926. The alkaline iron-containing waters and mud are used in the treatment of heart, circulatory and rheumatic diseases. 2825 Bad Tatzmannsdorf: Kurhof 1148 Bad Tatzmannsdorf: Kurhof
