In this document, the Emperor Barbarossa confirms to the church possession of Constance that the provost of Boll is subject to interest. The oldest traces of settlement go back to the Iron Age.

The source was contained and made to the middle point of a horseshoe shaped spa facility, the current day appearance of which resulted in the years 1823 - 1825 under King Wilhelm I. In 1852, Pastor Blumhardt took over the spa. In 1920 the Moravian Brotherhood became the new owners. Since then the house has been operated as a spa clinic and since 1976 the spa house - with spa park, pump room and Belvedere - has also been connected to a thermal mineral movement bath.
