Offenbach in Bad Ems

The fashionable spa town of Bad Ems was a regular destination for Offenbach between 1858 and 1870. On the one hand, his comedy troupe “bouffes-parisiens” played there in the summer months for the many French guests and he took a cure there to get rid of his gout, which troubled him early on. In addition, he composed his famous works and tried his hand at gambling in the casino, which was forbidden in France in those years.




Destination Marmorsaal (Marble hall)

The Offenbach troupe gave the performances in the beautiful Marble Hall of the State Spa, where regular performances also take place.
