Short trip outside of Frankfurt suggestions

Hey everyone! I have a 3 day/2 night trip I wanted to take within 2 hours of Frankfurt. Me and my husbands are looking for something relaxing and smaller town vibes. A few things that would be cool but not required is medieval/historic architecture, good food, nature/hike, spa/mineral waters. But we are open to anything. We will be traveling by train. Any suggestions appreciated :)

You might want to check out Bad Homburg, nestled in the Taunus Mountains. They have a great spa there, a nice little old town, the only original palace left from the Kaiser. Near-by is the Saalburg, a reconstructed Roman fort, and Hessen Park Open Air Museum. Hessen Park is filled with buildings they have moved from all over Hessen, which included 2 Synagogues, 2 Wind mills, several churchs, a school, and lots of old stores, farm houses and barns. They have traditional German farm animals and show various crafts that would have been done in earlier centuries in Hessen. I can spend hours there and I have been there lots of times!
