History

Lippspringe is mentioned in chronicles as early as the 9th century, and here in the 13th century the order of the Templars established a stronghold. It received civic rights about 1400. Friedrich Wilhelm Weber was born here in 1817. During the 19th century, the Arminius spring and the Liborius spring, with saline waters of a temperature of 21 °C (70 °F), were used both for bathing and drinking in cases of tuberculosis.

Sports

The local football team is BV Bad Lippspringe, which Antonio Di Salvo started his career with, after being born nearby.

Bad Lippspringe is home to RAPA (Rhine Army Parachute Association), a British Army Parachute and Skydiving Dropzone. This was formed in 1964 and is still going today.
