Fashion, music and dance like in the old days and one of Hesse's most beautiful arts and crafts markets - experience the Belle Époque at the Art Nouveau Festival in Bad Nauheim. The next festival will take place on 7 and 8 September 2024 at the Trinkkuranlage (drinking cure salon).
Men in tailcoats and top hats, women in elegant gowns, stylish horse-drawn carriages – the golden age of the Belle Époque is celebrated in Bad Nauheim. The Art Nouveau Festival attracts people from all over Germany. Highlights include the historic bicycles and penny-farthings that can be admired and tried out, as well as the dance and music performances that bring the festival grounds to life.
Marvel at the extensive Art Nouveau craftsmanship at the large artisans' and restorers' market, which takes place on Saturday and Sunday. Here you will find unique paintings, beautiful jewellery and handcrafted pieces made of ceramics, glass and fabric from the glamorous period around 1900. Sunday shopping on the festival weekend is also popular.
