Sprudelhof Bad Nauheim

Reviewed By Art4All - Scotland, UK

Few international travellers are probably aware of Bad Nauheim let alone its art nouveau spa complex called Sprudelhof which is a real missed opportunity. If you have an interest in the well known art nouveau cities of say Barcelona, Brussels, Nancy and Glasgow then head for this small city just 30 minutes by train north of Frankfurt. It's a compact city of just 30,000 people with plenty of parks and walking trails. The overall impression is of a gentle place which came to prominence in 1900 with the building of various treatment baths where the well-to-do took the local spa water. Go visit the various, individually designed bath houses and help support the local society who aims to restore these buildings back to their former glory.
Oh, and of course, Bad Nauheim's other claim to fame is that it's where Elvis Presley stayed when he was serving in the American army.

Friedberg Castle

Reviewed By Fira T - Hesse, Germany

We visited the castle on April, while me and my fiance doing our shopping arround Friedberg. We walked from downtown Friedberg to the castle. I was so fascinated by the castle with its gates, but found it so strange that there is some banner saying 'happy graduation' , later my fiance explain, inside this castle, there is a school, office and there is also few residences who lives inside the castle wall.
I never visited any castle before in my life, so I couldn't compare, but I like this castle, its building. the houses inside it, esp those timber houses and the cobblestoned walk. As we visited it on wednesday, we dont have a chance to enter the tower,Adolfsturm. The tower open every Saturday and Sunday from early April to end of October. I always fascinated with the fairy tales, and visited this little castle, bring all my imagination to those brother grimms tales.
I love photography so i snaped many pictures, from the architectures to the surrounding. My favorite is the Adolfsturm and the burgkirche.And there is also a building, look like a little palace or so, my Fiance said now it being used as some financial office or so.
I wish i could spent more time here, but it was cold early spring day, but soon ill be back here again.

Hochseilgarten Wolfersheimer See

Reviewed By Jennifer J

Letztes Jahr war ich desöfteren in diesem Hochseilgarten. Das Gelände liegt wunderschön am Wölfersheimer See im Grünen. Alles top gepflegt! Einmal haben wir mit 20 Teenies ein Zeltlager mit Nachtklettern, Lagerfeuer, Stockbrot, Mitternachtssport uvm. veranstaltet. Das hat allen riesen Spaß gemacht, vorallem haben Britta und ihr Team gute Stimmung erzeugt mit dem vielfältigen Teamspielen, die sie meist spontan auf die Beine gestellt haben!
Es gibt Toiletten, Dusche und Küche mit guter Kaffeemaschine auf dem Gelände :)
Das zweite Mal war ich auf einem Geburtstag dort eingeladen mit Liveband -war insgesamt ein toller Abend im Hochseilgarten!

Munzenberg Castle

Reviewed By Izzy61381 - Palm Springs, California

Love this castle and quaint town and would love to return. We visited in January, a few days after Christmas so we could not enter the castle, but it was beautiful nonetheless. The town is very small, but one of the most genuine and quaint German villages I have visited yet. It's a wonderful escape from the city life of Frankfurt if you need to get away or see more traditional German towns. Can't wait to return when the castle is open for visitors!

Forderverein Hausbergturm

Reviewed By dleebrick - Indian Land, South Carolina

If you are visiting any of the towns in the Butzbach area, you really should look up the Hausbergturm. It is an observation tower on one of the high Mountains west of town. There is a half mile or so walk, steady incline to the tower, through wonderful woods and with informational displays along the way. The view from the top is really spectacular, and the tower is substantial and steady, so you can just enjoy the sights and not worry about your safety.

Kurpark

Reviewed By Stephan G - Frankfurt, Germany

Bad Homburg is the home of one of Germany's largest and most beautiful spa parks. It is listed as a site of historic interest: Because the founder of Bad Homburgs famous casino, François Blanc, created something very special and therefore commissioned Peter Joseph Lenné, the Royal Prussian Garden Director-General to landscape the park. Because it has been tended for more than 150 years it stayed almost original. It is the only park outside the Berlin and Potsdam area that was designed by Lenné that is still largely in its original state.
The Kurpark covers an area of nearly 40 hectares and is designed as an English landscape park, with spacious lawns and solitary trees, dense groups of bushes, avenues, curving paths, and a small lake.

Freizeitpark Lochmuehle

Reviewed By Hawaii H - Tucson, Arizona

This park has been around for decades. And still it manages to attract people, families all year long. Parking is no issue, On very busy days, they open up the field and you just walk down the path to the entrance. The park is clean and very family oriented You can rent a cabin with benches and tables to do your griilling ( BBQ) . They have little individual BBQ pits or larger cabins. Some have an old fashion tractor that has a cabin on the hangar and you can sit in there.
Weather is not always an issue. A bit of rain and some clouds have slowed down no one from enjoying this easy going park. There are some roller coasters... but not the high in the sky ones.. family friendly. A carpet slide. Helicopters that go around the park and you have to do the kick hard to get it to move. Little kids rides and ball - bath for the little ones. Restaurants and Ice cream parlor. Bumper car as well as a boat that you pull the string and it goes up and drops quickly into the water. Climbing playground and so on and so on. A little river with rafts on it but you can't go anywhere. Just up and down the length of the river they are opening up. MIniature gold, train ride, and so on. Large grassy field. Tractor rides. Tamboline jumping and large swings. Comfy chairs to lounge on . Some historical information, Pony riding. And well taken care off animals exhibits throughout. Some you can feed and touch.
It also has a hanger that has fun activities, like slides etc for all ages. A huge zipline.
And so on. I can't name them all. but what I love about this park and we have now celebrate my middle daughters birthday they 4 years in a row. The kids are ok to run around. With their friends or siblings. The entrance pays for all the rides. Since mine are getting older, age 7 , now 10, now 12, I can allow them to roam around on their own, together and pick their rides. I will join in or meet them at certain areas. But it is never that I worry. Summer gets really busy on the weekends. If you want to bbq with your family, call ahead to reserve a pit. It is really a fun park. Perfect for family as you will be able to tell by the amount of people that come here during the day. Bring your own food or buy it there. They don't mind. Grass and trees are available. A relaxing day is ahead of you. Fun for all ages. It is on one lever. Perhaps a slight dip to the other part of the park. Wheelchairs have no problems to get around. Bathrooms are plenty throughout the park. Family that owns it has a house in the park. So it their pride and joy. A great place. Though full of people and activities, very relaxing.

Hessenpark Open Air Museum (Freilichtmuseum Hessenpark)

104 buildings recreate German life throughout the centuries.

Reviewed By Oceans242 - Frankfurt, Germany

This museum attempts to tell the history of Hesse. It mainly aims to achieve this by preserving old buildings from the various parts of the state which have been brought here and reassembled, then inside these buildings, various stories are being told. One could discuss if certain not so cheerful chapters of 20th-century German history need to be addressed, or addressed differently, but nonetheless, it's a very educational family experience.

This is an amazing construction.When I was a kid we went there to play,it was nice and cool in the summer.This Gradierwerk is build out of branches and the salt sole was pump on to the top by this water wheel you see in the picture.the purpose was to take the sole to a cookhouse to produce salt.During my youth there was a chain of these constructions,unfortunaly most of them were destroyed.Today it is still a piece full place to relax and listen to the soft falling water.

Judenbad

Reviewed By exploreforfun - Toronto

This is the site of an ancient Mikvah, and if you are in the area, definitely worth a visit. You might miss it as the door is very unassuming. According to the information provided this bath dates back to the middle of the 13th century. You pass through a brick archway and descend seven flights of stairs almost to the level of a deep clear water Reservoir. The light shines from the octagonal skylight. This bath was repaired in 1903, and it was these masons who noted the early markings denoting the original inscriptions. This not an expensive outing, €2 or lengthy, perhaps 30 minutes. It is closed from 12 to 14:00. A brochure is given to that provides the details of the architecture. If you leave the house, stroll down the street to see more of the area, including the memorial site of the Synagogue.
