Louisenstraße is one of the main streets of Bad Homburg, the central shopping district and the site of major cultural festivals. It stretches for 1.5 kilometers (0.93 miles) from the Marktplatz (market square) in the north-west and meets Ferdinandstraße at a circular junction. It is flanked by historic buildings with beautiful architecture, including the Kurhaus, and a few quaint squares. As it is a car-free zone, visitors can stroll in leisure and view the numerous sites. Locals and tourists alike can shop at a choice of four shopping arcades, replete with fashion boutiques and specialty stores, while the side lanes have smaller shops with good bargains. Dine at one of the charming cafés and bistros and enjoy views of the street while seated at shady patios. This street comes alive during the Bad Homburger Wine Festival in spring, the summer Lantern Festival, Thanksgiving Festival in autumn and Christmas Market during winter.
