Louisenstrasse

Stroll from the Rathaus (town hall) up past the Kurhaus and on up to Marktplatz or Schulstrasse - or the other way around: The pedestrians-only Louisenstrasse and its squares are the place to shop and stroll in Bad Homburg. Small and large shops next to each other, interspersed with bistros and cafés with tables laid outdoors in nice weather. Four shopping galleries invite you to an enjoyable shopping experience under one roof. The little side streets are well worth a short visit as they, too, offer some interesting finds.

Since Louisenstrasse is the main artery of the town, it is heaving with life, and not just everyday shoppers. Entertainment is guaranteed at the twice-weekly markets and, even more so, at the large street festivals that take place at the heart of the town. The Wine Festival in May, or the Thanksgiving Festival in October are just two examples. The shops traditionally open for business on the Sunday for both of these events. In late summer, thousands of visitors flock to the Lantern Festival where the street is lined with booths and stands. During the pre-Christmas season – "Weihnachtsstadt Bad Homburg" – Louisenstrasse is dressed up with pine trees and magnificent festive lights.

This paradise for shoppers is easily reachable from the several car parks located on the edge of the pedestrian zone.
