The Orangerie has been the focal point of social life in Bad Homburg since the mid 19th century. Originally built in 1844 to provide protection in winter for the 40 orange trees which Elector Wilhelm von Hessen had given in pledge of his casino debts it was soon being used by the spa guests as a place for drinking and strolling, for relaxation and alleviation of aches and pains. The concert shell which was built around 1970 was torn down and has been replaced with a rotating concert pavilion in the style of the early 20th century.
