Homberg an der Efze is a small castle town with plenty of traditional timber-framed houses dating from the 15th to the 18th centuries.

In 1526, Philip the Magnanimous converted the Landgraviate of Hesse to Protestantism while attending a synod in Homberg's St. Mary's Church, which earned it the nickname of "Reformation Church of Hesse".
