Dolenjske Toplice (German Töplitz) is a municipality in Slovenia near Novo mesto. It is located in the Dolenjska Region (Lower Carniola) on the Sušica River, which flows into the Krka River 2 km to the north, and has 3,494 inhabitants. The main village Dolenjske Toplice alone has 740 inhabitants.

The town is a spa and is known for its thermal baths, founded in 1658 by the Counts of Auersperg. It is one of the oldest spas in Europe. The place was first mentioned as early as the 13th century.[1]

A small area in the south of the municipality around Kočevske Poljane (Pöllandl), the northern part of the Moschnitze valley (Črmošnjiško-poljanska dolina), forms part of the historical Gottschee region. Some people here still speak the German dialect Gottscheerisch. The town is home to the Gottscheer Association, which publishes the German/Slovenian language magazine “Bakh-Pot”.[2]
