Situated at the heart of the Rhine Main region, Bad Vilbel is renowned across the Hesse state border as the town of springs. The municipality boasts around twenty mineral springs. Constructed in 1498, today Bad Vilbel’s half-timbered Franken town hall is an architectural attraction of the town. On the banks of the Nidda, which snakes its way through the town, lies the spa park with its ancient trees and the ruins of castle Vilbel. This acts as the stage for the popular annual castle festival games, which together with the “Bad Vilbeler Markt” folk festival and the jazz festival draw crowds of visitors from across the Rhine Main region.
Alongside medium-sized companies, large organisations also know to value the superb location and the town’s consistent growth. The mixture of attractive environment and superb urban infrastructure with diverse shopping facilities makes Bad Vilbel an exceptionally popular residential location outside the gates of Frankfurt. The neighbouring parishes of Karben, Schöneck and Nidderau also boast a high standard of living.
