Celebrate Your Christmas Break in Bad Hamburg

Set between the bustling city of Frankfurt on the Main river and the peaceful hilltops of the Taunus, is the charming spa town of Bad Hamburg.  The area has a lot to offer in addition to its ideal location, is the perfect balance between tradition and modern.  Exhibitions and live concerts lure the culture enthusiasts while the town’s famous casino Bad Hamburg - since 1841, turns night into day for many.  You can enjoy its beautiful parks, visit Bad Hamburg’s historical Royal Day Spa, or you can go shopping in its many independent shops.

A perfect Bad Hamburg day starts with a relaxed walk to ‘Landgrafenschloss’ castle.  Enjoy a guided tour through the historical living quarters, climb the white tower and be stunned by the view of the Taunus mountain range and across Bad Hamburg’s old town, all the way towards the city of Frankfurt.

Continue with a walk through the park and indulge in a piece of homemade cake or waffles at the castle café.  Take a stroll through the historical part of town and stop off at the ‘Erlöserkirche’ church, admire its golden mosaics and four towers.  Right across from the church is the ‘Sinclairhaus’, as well as the ‘Jakobshallen’ museums, which constantly refreshes its exhibitions of contemporary art.

For the history lovers a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the ‘Römerkastell Saalburg’ castle is a great afternoon visit.  Or you might have enough by this time and would like to spend the rest of the afternoon treating yourself at the Kaiser-Wilhelms Bad Day Spa, where kings and other royalty from all over Europe and Asia have spent their royal time.
