Germany: History of Bad Homburg vor der Höhe

On Saturday I got a postcard from Germany.

It is the Chronicle card of Bad Homburg vor der Höhe. Bad Homburg vor der Höhe got the town privileges in the 14th century. Between 1622 and 1866 it was the capital of the Landgraviate of Hesse-Homburg. In the 18th century its mineral springs were rediscovered and beginning in 1834 it became one of the most important European spa towns. Famous visitors include the German Emperor Wilhelm II and King Chulalongkorn of Siam. Today is Bad Homburg vor der Höhe a part of the German State of Hesse.
