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 will take place from 11 to 13 September 2020.

Enter the glorious time around 1900! At the three-day Art Nouveau festival you can enjoy clothing, music, dance, sports and games in the historical ambience of the fountain courtyard (Sprudelhof) just as they were in those days.

The large restorers' and arts and crafts market is part of the fixed supporting programme. Everyone can find a nice souvenir here - 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 work on wallpaper, furniture and pictures in front of everyone.

Absolutely worth seeing and open during the festival are the originally preserved bathhouses in the fountain courtyard (Sprudelhof), which impress with their nostalgic bathing cells and ornate courtyards.


AUTHENTIC COSTUMES

The fashion group of the Art Nouveau Association has made it its business to revive the time around 1900. During the festival, they stroll through the fountain courtyard (Sprudelhof) in costumes, some original, some based on historical models, and give the place an authentic flair - the ideal photo motif!
