From Bad Nauheim's city center the “Rosenchaussée” (Rose Avenue) which gorgeously blooms in summer leads visitors to "Steinfurth". During the festival a nostalgic arrival is possible with the historic “Rose Express” from Bad Nauheim’s train station. The leisurely journey offers views on the cultural landscape of the "Wetterau" and the rose fields along the way. Show gardens, rose schools and picturesque estates offer wonderful opportunities for romantic strolls through Steinfurth’s Rose-Mekka. 
The rose tradition is not only maintained in "Steinfurth". In 2005, Bad Nauheim won a gold medal for excellence in planning, designing and maintaining a constant bloom of the flowers and and green habitats in the national competition “Entente Florale”.
