    The "Gothic House" in Bad Homburg was built in 1823 on the initiative of the Countess Elisabeth of Hesse-Homburg, a daughter of the British King George III. and thus aunt of the later British Queen Victoria. After a serious accident during the construction work - a worker died - the completion of the building came to a standstill in November 1823. In the middle of the 19th century, the Gothic house finally completed was first used by the landgrave forestry administration. After the war of 1866, during which Hesse-Homburg fell to Prussia, the house became the property of the Prussian kings. At the end of the 19th century, the house began to be used as a tourist restaurant. In the first third of the 20th century, it became a hotel and catering business after modifications.
