Homburg City

Homburg is a charming small city in the Saarland region of south-west Germany, with a population of about 44,000. It’s about 25 miles west of Kaiserslautern, 16 miles west of Landstuhl.

As well as the historic old town with its cafes, restaurants and winebars, sights include the Schlossberg Höhlen (Schlossberg Caves), Burgweg, 66424 Homburg and the Roman Museum, or Römermuseum, an open-air museum which shows scenes from Roman-era life 2,000 years ago.

Upcoming Events & Guided Tours – 2022

Yesterday it was still high summer, and today it’s already fall. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing going on in Homburg anymore. Instead of culture in the museum and outdoor film nights, there are theater guest performances in the Saalbau cultural center, for example. On our guided tours, on the other hand, the motto is: There is no such thing as bad weather – just take the right clothes out of the closet and off you go – make new discoveries.

All guest tours subject to change; if conducted, appropriate hygiene standards and specifications must be observed.
