The HOREX Museum



In September 2012 the new HOREX Museum was opened in Bad Homburg, the original site of the motorcycle marque from its early beginnings in 1923 until production ended in the late 1950s.

The museum's location was carefully chosen. It is south of the Bad Homburg railway station and just a few meters away from the original HOREX factory site where legendary models including the Regina and Imperator were built.

Horex - Detail

The old bikes are complemented by numerous other exhibits – including a new HOREX with VR6 engine. There will also be information on the former “Rex” jar company based in Bad Homburg. This enterprise belonged to the father of HOREX founder, Fritz Kleemann. Along with the capital needed to start the motorcycle factory, the jar company gave HOREX the second syllable of its name. The letters "HO" in the first syllable come from the name of the town: Bad Homburg.
