The discovery in 1834 of the spring that was named after Landgravine Elisabeth was the first real step toward becoming a spa center. The water helps to alleviate stomach and intestine problems.
The "well" of success: The quality of the water from Elisabethenbrunnen is so outstanding that it played a central role in the town's rise to become a world-renowned spa. To this day, it is still the most important mineral spring in Bad Homburg. Used in former times in salt production, it was filled up, before being rediscovered on June 27, 1834. The opinion of Justus von Liebig, a famous chemist: "It would be hard to find a mineral water in Germany with the same richness of active ingredients as the Elisabethenbrunnen in Homburg. The temple covering the spring was designed by no less then Emperor Wilhelm II himself - right in the middle of the First World War. The statue of Hygeia, the Greek goddess of health, is seated inside the temple.
