Homburg is a city located in the state of Saarland. The city borders France, so many locals speak French. The proximity to the border caused not only cultural mixing but also economic recovery. Homburg is a developed transport and trade hub. The city is also the seat of the headquarters of many famous enterprises, plants, and factories.

The main attraction of the city is the open-air Museum of Roman History, where archaeologists have rebuilt the whole residential area of the Roman Empire, the Temple of Mercury, and the old water pipe. Homburg also houses many churches built in different architectural styles. In addition, one can just stroll around the city and enjoy its calm and measured atmosphere, taste local dishes in a cozy cafe or restaurant, and buy souvenirs.

Many German cities attract tourists with their impressive palace complexes, during a visit to which one can plunge into the past and learn about the life of past centuries. Homburg is no exception, and there is also an ancient palace here, namely Karlsberg Castle. The baroque palace was ordered by Duke Charles II August from 1776 to 1786 and, at that time, it was considered one of the most impressive buildings of its kind in all of Europe. In 1793, the castle was burned down by French revolutionary troops. Homburg visitors can now admire the castle building through a reconstructed 3D restoration project.

Homburg will also not leave hikers and nature lovers indifferent. The city's guests will enjoy five beautiful nature reserves, many parks, and special trails for hiking and biking.
