Every year, the city of Bad Nauheim hosts a Jugendstil Festival. The old spa buildings and gardens are a marvellous setting. Visitors can travel back in time and admire men and women in typical attire, ride in a hackney coach, or buy Jugendstil-y things from the market shops. You can take the waters (Bad Nauheim still is a spa to this day), watch craftsmen doing their work that was mechanized long ago, and take some refreshments in style.
