Year after year, more than 30,000 visitors enjoy this event,
making it the biggest Thai festival in Germany.
Bad Homburg has been connected to the Thai royal family for over a hundred years. With the visit and the stay and recuperation of King Chulalongkorn in 1907 in Homburg, at the summer residence of the German emperor, the cornerstone for more than 100 years friendly relations was laid.
After his return to Thailand, the King presented the city with a Buddhist temple which was inaugurated in the presence of Prince Mahidol.
The Thai Festival in Bad Homburg is based on that friendly tradition and is held annually by the Royal Thai Consulate in Frankfurt. The Festival promotes Thai culture through Thai food stalls as well as cultural and traditional performances.
Bad Homburg is part of the Frankfurt Rhein-Main urban area. It is well known for its medically used mineral waters and spa (hence the prefix Bad, meaning “bath”).
