Fürstenlager State Park
The Fürstenlager (“Princes’ Camp”) in Bensheim-Auerbach from the late 18th century was the rural summer residence of the House of Hesse-Darmstadt. Today, the idyllic hamlet with an old spa fountain in the middle of a landscaped park is open to all who enjoy a stroll and captivates with its peace and tranquillity.

The Fürstenlager is a place for active deceleration. The world seems to become quieter and time to pass more slowly when you go to the Hessian state park near Bensheim-Auerbach: at the bottom of a valley basin lies a pretty ensemble of buildings framed by steep slopes of forest, meadows and vineyards. Nestled in the natural topography of the Odenwald at the transition to the Upper Rhine Plain, it cannot be called anything other than idyllic. This is how the princes who once used it to escape courtly constraints may have found it.
