Bad Homburg’s casino is definitely one of the must-visit highlights in the town. Located in the heart of the idyllic Kurpark, it offers the very finest gambling fun in a welcoming atmosphere. With a history spanning more than 175 years, it is one of the oldest and most famous casinos in Europe. Since it was founded by François Blanc and his twin brother Louis, the “Mother of Monte Carlo” has evolved into a successful institution. Following discovery of the first mineral spring in Bad Homburg in the early 19th century, the desire to make Bad Homburg a spa town grew. Key to the plans was the opening of a casino to attract the wealthy and the heirs. Nowadays, Spielbank Bad Homburg ranks among Germany’s top five casinos. At international level, it is also one of the most successful and popular casinos. Gourmets and night revelers are equally drawn to the casino, especially the Restaurant Le Blanc and its bar.
