Welcome in Bad Ems

Bad Ems

Bad Ems has a spectacular location on the banks of the River Lahn, set in a steep-sided valley.  The main spa quarter buildings are surrounded by formal French and English gardens, while those in search of some wilder nature can hike up the 200-year old paths to the Concordia tower for a panoramic view over the river and the town.  Alternatively the modern funicular, the Kurwaldbahn, is one of the steepest in the world, and worth a ride!  Look out for musical events and festivals, throughout the year, especially concerts in the Kurpark, and the  flower parade at the end of August, which is the largest in Germany.  For relaxation, the river-side location of the Saunas and terrace at the Emser Therme are hard to beat!
