Koenigsteiner Strasse 88, Bad Soden am Taunus, Hesse, 65812, Germany
Satisfaction: Very Good
Good for: Solo
It's a nice restaurant that sits in Bad Soden's pedestrian zone. While dining outside, tables provided across the restaurant's front door where it's quiet, free of cars, free of noise, and traffic's smell. Good place for having smaller kids with you when dining out. Restaurant looks pretty German yet cuisine (and owners) seem to be greek. Nice...more
The cafe and restaurant S-Bar seemed to be very crowded in the evening. We yet have been there noonish on some beautifully sunny day. The place then was nothing but very nice, and neat with tables outside, surrounded by other little nice cafes, lovely stores, plants, banks, a playground area for kids, no traffic. Just beautiful. And so was their...more
It's a small Italian ice cafe that offers yummy ice cream, I yet haven't tried, but peppermint tea from their hot tea selection. Nice too. However, their menu of ice creams does look great. Very friendly and attentive waiters. Nicely located in Bad Soden's center near train station. The one big minus no extra spot for non-smokers.more
I visited this place last night with some friends and the food was terrible. The main dishes arrived just several minutes after the starter which, of course, was too soon. The waiter took this back and brought it 10 minutes later. The pasta was dry, cold, not-fresh and by not fresh I mean it had no taste and the texture was like pasta that had been...more

The trip from Bad Soden to the center of Frankfurt takes half an hour and costs € 4.25. To...more
There are some signposted bicycle routes leading in and out of Bad Soden, but within the city itself I didn’t notice much in the way of cycling infrastructure. Car traffic is intense, as might be expected in a town with so many rich people, and the main streets have no bicycle lanes.Some people commute to work by bicycle, but these are mainly...more
Bad Soden's cute train station provides easy & fast & convenient connections to either Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, the Rhineland-Palatine provincial capital Mainz or to many more spots. Important: Carry with you a certain amount of coins/cash as there is no point of service or anything but one lonely ticket-maschine with little of informations.more
I went into this wine store a couple of times during my seven day stay in Bad Soden. As my husband was working during the day I had plenty of time to stroll through the village. I wanted to take the trains into Frankfurt but, unable to speak German, I was a little intimidated. When I went to this wine store, the owner, Francois Jacoulot, spoke English. When I asked him about the trains, he closed his shop and walked with me the short distance to the train station, and told me exactly what I needed to do, which station to get off at, which train to take to get back, the time of the last train back, and how to buy my tickets. The next evening, I went back into his shop. He was hosting a wine tasting, and invited me to join him. He asked about my train trip to Frankfurt.
The wines were great, and needless to say, I bought a lot of wines and cigars from this man!
What to buy: Great selection of red wines and from a diverse region in Europe.
What to pay: Many economical selections, as well as high end wines.
The Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) is well known for his colorful, whimsical buildings with rounded edges and slanting towers, garishly decorated with thousands of small tiles.His buildings were never very practical, because he didn’t want to “enslave” people by locking them up in boxes with straight lines. The house he...more
On this house by the Quellenpark (Spring Park) there are two different plaques, both with the momentous information that the opera composer Richard Wagner slept here on the night of August 12-13, 1860, which was his “first night on German soil” after “eleven years of exile from the Fatherland”.To us prosaic twenty-first century folks this might...more

Now the Old Spa Park is one of four parks in the center of Bad Soden,...more
