Nauheim Is Famous For Its Musiktage (Music Days)

Wow, the Hessian town of Nauheim has really rebounded and made something of itself. How so? Good thing you asked but, I was going to tell you anyway. :-)

Back during the Thirty Years’ War in the mid-17th century, Nauheim had barely 170 people living here. Now, it has more than 10,000 (after last count) and even an own music festival.

So when you’re in the mood for musical entertainment, come right into the center of town for the annual Nauheim Music Days Festival. Held every year at the end of May on a Sunday, you’ll be delighted by the sheer variety of music played (everything from jazz, pop, to choir).

Then there’s the Dorffest or Village Festival called Naumer Kerb at the beginning of October. This is where people from near and far meet and party for a couple days.

Of course, if you want the opposite end of the spectrum — there is plenty of peace & quiet to be found at both the Hegbachsee and the Kiebertsee. The many paths that lead from these two lakes will take you through quiet areas of the natural landscape. Keep your eyes peeled! This area is good for bird watching and you might spot some of the local wildlife.

Also, plenty of camping sites abound along the lake area, so pack a tent and have a go at roughing it!

Nauheim’s Local History Museum (called Heimatmuseum) is a good place to start when you want to join civilization again. Music is a big part of Nauheim’s culture, so its fitting the museum has exhibits on musical instruments; along with crafts and farming.

Hey, asparagus is big crop business around these parts, too. Come eat the “king’s” vegetable when it’s harvested in late spring. There’s no healthier way to keep up your strength to go sightseeing around Nauheim.
