Welcome to Homberg (Ohm)

This charming city with a medieval nucleus is situated on a hill of basalt. The historic center invites you to stroll through the narrow streets with half-timbered houses and little shops. High above the small town rises the once stately castle of Homberg, nowadays owned by the municipality. The garden of the castle offers to the visitor a marvelous view over the valley of the river Ohm. In the Schlosscafé you can enjoy home-baked cakes every Sunday afternoon.
