“Our family had a very good time in this comfortable apartment with large balcony and old trees around the house. It's a quiet and residential area surrounded by many beautiful old villas and very close to the old (shopping-)center and three wonderful parcs of the old castle and the traditional thermal hot springs and spa. Our swap-partner had prepared a lot of maps and folders for our leisure time to discover the interesting region of Frankfurt, Hessen and the nature of the Taunus. So have also such a nice swap as we had!”
Miriam's reviewsAs a host (3)
“We had a very relaxed peaceful holiday in this sunny, well located, spacious flat. All the mod coms and much more. There are many cultural activities in Bad Homburg, convenient shops, restaurants and the Bad of course in a beautiful park just behind the flat. This exchange should get top marks.”
“...With this beautiful little town in the foothills of the Taunus and a 15 minute train ride from Frankfurt. I have described it to friends as a fairy-tale town, right from the pages of the Grimm Brothers. Thank you, Miriam, for a wonderful stay in Bad Homburg this past summer; everything was as you described and more. I loved your comfortable, all mod cons apartment, the sidewalk cafes, the great restaurants (recommend the Himalayan!), the lovely old town with its half-timbered houses, the elegant Kurpark with its free concerts in the pavilion, the historic and reasonably priced Kaiser Wilhelm's Bad...and you forgot to tell everyone about the Roman World Heritage site at Saalberg, a short bus ride away. Hope to be back...”
Where is it?
Bad Homburg is a picturesque town close to Frankfurt which offers a sophisticated level of living, dining and shopping. The huge park, the castle, the day spa, the casino or the shopping promenade are inviting to explore the town.
As the train station is only a 5 minute walk from my apartment, Frankfurt with its international airport and metropolitan flair is only a stone's throw away. Here you can enjoy the nightlife as well as museums, galleries, shopping centres and restaurants. If you are interested in literature and history, just follow the tracks of Goethe or the Brothers Grimm, who were born in Frankfurt.
Also cities like Cologne or Heidelberg are just a 1-2 hour trip. Even Paris/France is just a three-hour train ride away.
If you enjoy hiking or mountain biking, the low mountain range Taunus, which is just around the corner, offers multiple possibilities.
