Büdingen is a town in the Wetteraukreis, in Hesse, Germany. It is famous for its well-preserved, heavily fortified medieval city wall and half-timbered houses.GeographyLocationBüdingen is in the south of the Wetterau below the Vogelsberg hills at an altitude of approx. 160 meters. The city is situated 15 km northwest of Gelnhausen and about 40 km east from Frankfurt am Main. Historically, the city belongs to Oberhessen.GeologyBüdingen is situated in a wet and swampy valley. The castle and the old town therefore rest on centuries-old oak planks, placed horizontally across vertical beech piles (poles). The water level has to be kept high enough so that no air can reach these foundations.DistrictsSince 1972, the city includes the following formerly independent municipalities: Aulendiebach, Büches, Büdingen, Calbach, Diebach am Haag, Düdelsheim, Dudenrod, Eckartshausen, Lorbach, Michelau, Orleshausen, Rinderbügen, Rohrbach, Vonhausen, Wolf, and Wolferborn.In the same year, the county of Büdingen was dissolved, and Büdingen and the county of Friedberg formed the Wetteraukreis, with Friedberg becoming the new county capital.
