Fodor's Review

This casino boasts with some justice that it is the "Mother of Monte Carlo." The first casino in Bad Homburg, and one of the first in the world, was established in 1841, but closed in 1866 because Prussian law forbade gambling. Proprietor François Blanc then established the famous Monte Carlo casino on the French Riviera, and the Bad Homburg casino wasn't reopened until 1949. A bus from south side of Frankfurt's Hauptbahnhof leaves every 60 to 90 minutes between 2 pm

and 1 am. Buses back to Frankfurt run every 1–2 hours from 4:30 pm to 4 am. The €6.10 fare will be refunded after the casino's full entry fee has been deducted. You must show a passport or other identification to gain admission.
