What to expect

Wiesbaden, the capital city of the federal state Hesse, is a historic spa which dates back to the Romans who knew it as "Aquis Mattiacis". Wiesbaden is one of the oldest spa towns in Europe with 14 hot springs. Compared to the nearby busy metropolis Frankfurt, Wiesbaden impresses with its relaxed atmosphere and the charming old town.

The tour will start at the Kurhaus (Spa House), built between 1904 and 1907 at the request of Kaiser Wilhelm II for the price of six million Gold marks. One part of this monumental Neo-Classical building houses the Wiesbaden Casino which is again in operation. See also the nearby “Bowling Green” and the Hessian State Theatre Wiesbaden built in 1894. Stroll along one of Germany’s most elegant shopping streets, the Wilhelm Straße till you reach Kochbrunnen. Kochbrunnen – the „boiling well“– is the most famous hot spring in the city. The Romans had already used the thermal springs around the square in the first century A.D.

Continue towards the Gold Lane and immerse into the historic district called ''Schiffchen'' (little ship) as it is formed like a ship’s bow. Many goldsmiths have their studios in this area. On Palace Square, view the City Palace built for the Duke of Nassau in 1840. Here you can also admire the Neo-Gothic Marktkirche, with 98 meters Wiesbadens tallest structure.
