This chapel is the landmark of Bad Camberg and is situated on the top of a hill above the town. You can already see it from the highway. The chapel was built 1682 and was extended later. From the town you can take the "Way of the Cross" up to the chapel. From there, you can enjoy the view on the landscape and the town. I'm not sure when this chapel is opened, every time I went there it was closed!
This place has lots of beautiful half-timbered houses. It's a nice place to relax and to enjoy the view on the old houses! It's used for markets and festivals, like the Spring/Autumn/Christmas Market or the Lampion-Festival (Chinese lantern festival).
This is the Leaning Tower of Bad Camberg... It was build 1365-1380, is 21,34 meters high and has a inclination of 1,44 metres. Unfortunately it's not possible to visit it inside.

At Easter, in Erbach (a village that belongs to Bad Camberg), the spring is decorated with colorful Easter eggs. Nowadays, they take plastic eggs instead of empty real eggs, as there are always stupid people who would destroy the real eggs.
It's a common custom in other parts of Germany (Franken for instance), but you here see it seldom, so it's something special and always a nice sight!
