The resort town of Kronberg is not just known for its fresh air, though there is plenty of that. Nowadays, it is an attractive destination for home-makers and tourists alike. It’s difficult to believe that this idyllic town, with a population of 18,000, is just 10 minutes from Frankfurt and 25 minutes from Wiesbaden.
The first thing that usually strikes visitors is how Kronberg has kept so much of its past intact. Recent research has shown that the history of the town reaches back as far as the Carolingian Era, more than a thousand years ago. Kronberg Castle dates to around the year 1220 CE and its construction laid the foundation for the city as it exists today – it is the very centerpiece of the town. The timber-framed houses of surrounding streets harken back to the Germany of the Middle Ages while the town’s many public parks, gardens and villas date from the nineteenth century. With its distinctive atmosphere and attractive surroundings, who wouldn’t be tempted to stay?
