Did you know that one of the Camino routes going to Santiago de Compostela, runs right through the middle of Frankfurt? Once we meet up at the Alte Nikolai, we will go over to St. Leonhard's which was a gathering spot for pilgrims. There will, of course, be a bit of history about the Camino, because no tour is complete without it. I will bring my back-pack and poles, which you can practice carrying if you want to see what it feels like and learn how to use trekking poles.

Arts & Culture Event Sept. #1: Guided Walking Guided Tour in Bad Soden
Do you know that Bad Soden is a spa town and an interesting place to explore? In its heyday, in the 18th and 19th centuries, Russian doctors used to send famous patients to Soden to take the waters. Nobility strolled through the spa facilities; famous musicians composed here and writers such as Tolstoy described the atmosphere in his novel ‘Anna Karenina’. Bad Soden has more than 30 springs – ten of which are recognised for medicinal purposes. It has old parks with rare trees, restored 19th century villas along the main road and timbered framed cottages in the alt stadt and health centres such as the Medico Palais. Last, but not least, it has the Hundertwasserhaus that has to be seen to be believed. Theresa, the guide, will lead you through the past to the present day of Bad Soden.
* It starts at 10:00 am and we cannot wait for you if you are late. Please make sure to arrive at the meeting point at least 15 min. early.
