Welcome to Idstein!
Many people, when passing by on the motorway, catch a glimpse of Idstein lying in a sunny valley below the dark Taunus woods and decide to take a closer look, to make a quick detour.
And it is worth the time. Whether it is a short tour through the side streets only or whether the visitor decides to stay for the day or even pass the night here – he will fall in love with the small town. Here, in comfortable walking distance, the visitor will discover a royal palace area close to narrow streets with half-timbered civil houses in a carefully restored old town. He will find a current day’s copy of the "Herald Tribune" available as well as a next day laundry; he will encounter cosy corners, nooks, alleys and small passages, whether with a guided tour or on his own.
