I'm leaving for a short holiday to germany and goingh 1 day to bad nauheim. I was wondering if some of you could help me with info about Elvis related places I must have seen before going home... is there a special Elvis map of bad nauheim ...???

I know about Hotel Grunewald, Burgerporte, Gutestrasse, and the bridge...

Hope I can find it all...

I hope someone can help me...

Tourist info has small maps that will help you find your way around Erik.
They also have other Elvis goodies you might like.

And find the small toyshop on the street called Pallisaden, the main road through Bad Nauheim. Ask the older man when he is in the store about Elvis. He will have a nice story for you, like he did for me.

I bet you will love it there.

Thank you Sonny,

I will try to meet this man... Hope he can tell me the same story he told you.

It's strange Bad nauheim is a 6 hour trip from my house in Holland and I haven't been there yet. Graceland is a 8 hour flyed and I been there 2 years ago...

Sounds like you're going to have a great trip, And I want to hear the story!

Only a 6 hour drive from Holland to Germany? I've got to learn my geography!

Hi Erik,

You will be very surprised by how much eveythings is so close to each other. The house is a short walk across the road from the bridge,the grunewald is 7 minutes from the house also,i have been 5 times so far and loved it,it is like time has stopped there and elvis is everywere!

at the grunewald you have too stay there but very hard to get into,so just say your on business and not an elvis fan the woman is still there who opened the door too elvis,once your in wow its a treasure trove of elvis everything is original,i stayed in red wests room,direct opposite elvis' room and on the same level is minnie mae's room with the original wire flex from the cooker she had installed.........
enjoy
