The Bad Homburg Casino, situated in the town of Bad Homburg in the south west of Germany, was founded in May 1841. The year before this, brothers Louis and Francois Blanc obtained from the Landgrave (German nobleman) the rights to run a casino in the town. Due to gambling restrictions in France, the two French brothers, left for Germany and became famous there in particular for introducing the first modern versions of European roulette. Closed and then opened at different times depending on the local legal situation, the Bad Homburg Casino really came into its own in the second half of the 20th century after the Second World War.
