The town's formal name is Bad Homburg vor der Höhe (translated as "Bad Homburg in front of the height") to distinguish it from other places of the same name, abbreviated as Bad Homburg v. Today, Bad Homburg is again one of the wealthiest towns in Germany (with the Hochtaunuskreis and the Landkreis Starnberg regularly competing for the title of the wealthiest district in Germany).
As of 2004 Local tradition holds that Bad Homburg's documented history began with the mention of the Villa Tidenheim in the Lorsch codex, connected with the year 782.
The Hessen-Homburg noble family of landgraves was founded with Friedrich I of Hessen-Homburg.
Friedrich II (1680–1708) attained fame as Prince of Homburg.
This Villa Tidenheim was equated with the Old Town, called "Dietigheim". Local historian, Rüdiger Kurth, doubted these traditional stories based on his study of written sources and local factors.
In 2002 Kurth initiated archaeological digs by the University of Frankfurt under the leadership of Professor Joachim Henning.
The excavations showed that there was no evidence of settlement between the beginning of the Christian Era and the 13th century.
The first Jewish cemetery was purchased in the 17th century.
Bad Homburg vor der Höhe is the district town of the Hochtaunuskreis, Hesse, Germany, on the southern slope of the Taunus, bordering among others Frankfurt am Main and Oberursel.
Bad Homburg is part of the Frankfurt Rhein-Main urban area. It is best known for its medically used mineral waters and spa (hence the prefix Bad, "bath"), and for its casino.
The community continued to grow so rapidly that in 1703 the landgrave Frederick II of Hesse decided on the construction of a special Judengasse.
A synagogue, built in 1731, was replaced by a new one in 1867.
The town's name, "Homburg", comes from the Hohenberg Castle.
