Following Elvis's footsteps in Bad Nauheim

Villa Grunewald

Just one week after the singer arrived in Bad Nauheim, he was followed by his father Vernon, his grandmother Minnie Mae, and his two friends and bodyguards Red West and Lamar Fike. Elvis rented an entire floor in the Hotel Grunewald in the Terrassenstrasse. Room no. 10 - the “Elvis-Room” - has been preserved in its original state until today, although it is no longer accessible.

Goethestraße 14

Near the town library is another attraction: the private address 14 Goethestrasse, where "the most famous soldier in the world" moved to in 1959 with his father, his grandmother, and his friends. And this is also where the love story between him and his Priscilla began in the same year. Elvis lived in the Goethestrasse until the end of his military service in March 1960.

Elvis Stele

Right next to the former Hotel Grunewald is the "Elvis stele", a commemorative column on the Elvis Presley Square. It was inaugurated on August 26th, 1995, and has become a real "pilgrimage" destination for his fans, who place ?owers and leave messages in all the languages in the world.

Popular photo motifs

Other highly popular photo opportunities for Elvis fans are the bridge over the Usa rivulet, on which Elvis was once photographed, and the Burgpforte (castle gate), where the picture was taken for the album cover of "A Big Hunk o' Love". Fans love to pose for pictures there in the same way their idol did before them. A short stroll to graduation building IV/V, where Elvis regularly used to play soccer and American football is also worthwhile.
