Magnificent house facades, ample boulevards, spacious parks as well as winding alleys and idyllic squares characterize the State Capital of Hesse which is, apart from its political significance, a famous spa town for centuries.
In Roman times already, local people swore by the healing power of – all in all – 26 thermal springs and until today, ten-thousands of spa guests visit Wiesbaden to benefit from these springs.
Featuring a great range of shops and boutiques, the city center of Wiesbaden invites visitors to take a relaxed stroll or – depending on mood – to go on an extensive shopping spree. Countless cafés and restaurants are perfect places to take a break. Whether modern, traditional or alternative – there is something to suit every taste.
If you want to have a fascinating view on Wiesbaden and the whole Rhine-Main Area, you have to visit the Neroberg which is reachable either afoot or by ropeway.
As Wiesbaden is perfectly situated between Rheingau and Taunus region, visitors are able explore two different natural and cultural areas reachable within only a few minutes by car.
The Taunus, being a popular recreation are for the whole Rhine-Main Area, attracts both tourists and locals providing a wide variety of hiking trails and mountain bike paths.
On the other hand, the Rheingau area comes up with romantic, picturesque towns, medieval castles and a wine culture grown for centuries. Whether you want to attend a wine tasting, hike through the vineyards or even participate in the grape harvest – there is hardly another region throughout Germany being as connected to wine as the Rheingau area.
