Bad Homburg vor der Höhe

New Page 2

We enjoyed our day off traveling to Bad Homburg, just north of Frankfurt. Rumored to house the most millionaires per capita in Germany, luxury, relaxation and tranquility seem to be the name of the game in Bad Homburg. With exquisite Baroque-influenced architecture and the huge sprawling Kurpark (spa garden) throughout the town, it couldn’t look more different than Frankfurt. It’s officially called Bad Homburg vor der Höhe, “before the Heights”, as it is located at the foot of the Taunus Mountains, an extremely popular weekend walking spot for Frankfurters. For centuries Bad Homburg has been home to celebrity visitors, princes, kings and queens, writers and czars, all looking for a bit of relaxation and recuperation in its amazing natural springs, or looking to lose a fortune at the famous casino, as Dostoyevski famously did in 1867 and documented in his novel The Player. During the Winter months it's not so amazing, so we'll have to come back in spring.. :O)
