Some photos from Bad Homburg's Altstadt (old town)
I love roof tops!
Part of the town's fortifications, this tower was also used to house suspected witches.
The entrance to the castle
The top courtyard of the castle.
Bad Homburg is a spa town. The Elisabethenbrunnen is one of many springs in the town. The water is supposed to be very good for people with liver and gall bladder complaints.... it really doesn't smell very good though!
Another spring - the Auguste-Victoria-Brunnen.
The Russian Orthodox church on the edge of the Kurpark.
The first of two Thai temples in the Kurpark. One of the Thai emperors came to Bad Homburg in the early 1900's presumably to drink the water and gifted the town with these rather beautiful and ever so slightly incongruous temples!
This is my favourite of the two.
Having walked round for a very long time we gave up on finding the casino or the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Bad! The Kurpark is very large - maybe another day!
