Bad Wilsnack is a town in the Prignitz district, in Brandenburg, Germany. It is located roughly halfway between Berlin and Hamburg. Since 1928 it has been formally recognized as a spa town, prior to which time its name was just Wilsnack.
The St. Nicoli church in Bad Wilsnack has a very significant history as a pilgrimage destination after the town and church were brunt down in the 14th century. It was assumed that some hosts were found to be bleeding on the alter and the resultant pilgrimages to see the miraculous hosts went on for some centuries until Martin Luther said they should call it off as a false miracle. The story of the bleeding hosts was portrayed in a series of woodcuts in the middle ages. To this day, the city sports a huge church that is much bigger than what one would anticipate for the size of the town.

Bad Wilsnack is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in Germany. It is worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of Germany.
