"Cosy and calm"
"Soden was given to the duke of Nassau as a form of compensation for his foregoing of municipal office in Holland (1803).. After Nassau had formed an alliance during the Austrian-Prussian war of 1866 and in so doing had supported the defeated faction, it was inevitable that the Prussian flag would fly over the territories of Nassau. Soden consequently became part of the Prussian province of Hessen-Nassau.. In 1849 a Swiss-style Pump House (Kurhaus) was erected at the upper end of the Old Spa Park (Alter Kurpark).."
"Lovely for leisure"
