Bad Homburg, situated between 137 and 250 meters above sea level at the foot of the Taunus mountains, is blessed with “champagne air”. This fresh air flows down from the mountains and cools the heated air in the town – especially in the evenings in summer. The cooler mountain climate of the Taunus meets the dry-warm climate of the Rhine-Main plain in Bad Homburg. The average air temperature over the year is 8-9 degrees Celsius, with rainfall averaging 70 mm. The region has one of the lowest wind rates in Germany.
