House with the four towers

Short facts

  • Bad Ems
  • historic sites, Roman Limes

Striking baroque building, once the summer residence of Tsar Alexander II.

Its four corner towers gave the baroque building from the late 17th century its name. Celebrities such as Carl Maria von Weber and a number of European kings once stayed here. For Tsar Alexander II, the "Four Towers" were his unofficial summer residence. Next door is the bathhouse built in 1845 with 30 baths fed by the Neuquelle spring, which was operated in this capacity until the 1960s.
