Butzbach Old Town


Discover the Wetterau in the old town of Butzbach

The Hessian town of Butzbach lies between the Taunus Nature Park and the Wetterau and is also called the “Pearl of the Wetterau”. Since 2011, the town, which was the city of the Hessentag 2007, has officially been allowed to call itself “Friedrich Ludwig Weidig City” – after the Protestant theologian and educator who lived in Butzbach and is considered one of the heads of the Vormärz and pioneer of the German Revolution of 1848/49. On a walk through Butzbach’s old town, which is well worth seeing, you can discover, among other things, the Roman tower on the Schrenzerberg, the market square with market fountain, the Weide baroque house built in 1725 and the town wall from the 14th or 15th century with the associated half-timbered residential building from the 18th century.
