Landgrave´s Castle and Castle Park

Landgraves resided at the castle until 1866 when the dynasty died out and the castle was passed on to Prussia - at that point the German Emperors "discovered" Homburg and set up their summer residence at the castle.

All that Landgrave Friedrich II left standing was the 14th century keep. The remainder of the medieval Hohenburg was torn down to its foundations to make way for a castle. "Friedrichsburg" - Friedrichs castle - was designed by Paul Andrich and was the first neo-Baroque residence to be built from 1680 onwards, after the Thirty Years´ War. Its characteristic features, the wings grouped in an equal pattern around two courtyards, exist to this day. The keep was incorporated in the upper castle courtyard and became the White Tower which is Bad Homburg´s landmark. The Landgraves resided at the castle until 1866, when the dynasty died out and the castle passed to Prussia - at that point German Emperors "discovered" Homburg. They set up their summer residence at the castle.
