Time travel into the Belle Epoque

Once a year the blossom of the former world spa comes to life again when Bad Nauheim celebrates its Art Nouveau heritage.

Art Nouveau Festival

The next Art Nouveau Festival takes place from 9 to 10 September 2023.

Immerse yourself in the glamorous time around 1900! At the Art Nouveau Festival, you can enjoy clothing, music, dance, sports and games just like in the old days in the historic ambience of the drinking cure complex (Trinkkuranlage).

The large restorer's and craftsmen's market is part of the permanent supporting programme. Here everyone will find a nice souvenir – the exhibitors offer lamps, mirrors, porcelain, fashion, jewellery, glass and ceramic art as well as special stationery from the time around 1900. The restorers show their craftsmanship and refurbish wallpaper, furniture and pictures in front of everyone.

During the festival, fashion around 1900 also comes back to life. A fashion group strolls across the grounds in costumes, some original, some based on historical models, exuding authentic flair – the ideal photo motif!
concerts and dance Dance choreographies from the Art Nouveau period, concerts with contemporary music and performances by regional choirs will make the festival grounds melodious.
