Bad Homburg Palace and Palace Park
Among German palaces, Bad Homburg palace has a unique position: It is the only place of residence of the last German emperors and empresses. The Hohenzollern family regularly used the former residence of the Landgraves of Hesse-Homburg for recreation, even in times of war. The cultural monument has historical showrooms and a multi-layered, epoch-spanning palace park that was once part of a unique garden kingdom: the Landgraviate Garden Landscape. The palace is also the administrative centre of the State Palaces and Gardens of Hesse.

Bad Homburg Palace: from Landgravial Residence to Imperial Palace
Michael Maaser guides us through the history of the Taunus palace (production: Media Atelier Mainz, director: Jürgen Czwienk).
Anyone who visits Bad Homburg Palace and its park takes a quick run through the centuries. In the palace district of today’s spa town in front of the Taunus Mountains in central Hesse, different layers of time come together sharply and stimulatingly. The architectural complex combines the White Tower, a remnant of the medieval "Hohenburg" and now the town's landmark, with an early Baroque palace as well as some later additions by Prussian kings and German emperors. The two-tiered palace garden has also grown over 300 years, its beginnings going back even further. The State Palaces and Gardens of Hesse have their headquarters at this place of concentrated history.
