Famous Visitors of Bad Nauheim

High nobility and international bourgeoisie

Bad Nauheim attracted many famous visitors in the course of history. The emerging spa town became a meeting place of European aristocracy. The American nobility, too, was seeking health through the bubbling springs. After the visit of the Austrian, Russian and German Empresses, the press called Bad Nauheim the Drei-Kaiserinnen-Bad (The Spa of the three Empresses). As a result, the spa town attracted many artists, musicians, actors, painters, authors and politicians.
