Wise up to a Wiesbaden visit


WIESBADEN, 16 May 2019: The spotlight shone on Wiesbaden host city for this year’s German Travel Mart to present its travel experiences to international travel buyers.

The Hessen State regional capital is a 40-minutes train ride from Frankfurt International Airport.

The city’s tourism officials were keen to showcase its heritage and attractions to Asian travel buyers.

Hessen State’s regional capital is credited with being a green, compact metropolis with an exceptional architectural heritage.

Wiesbaden was lucky to be spared the heavy bombing that flattened many of the country’s historical cities such as Frankfurt or Mainz.

Turn-of-the-century villas and buildings line up along Wiesbaden streets giving the city its distinctive character.

Asian travellers are attracted to the huge pedestrian area with the presence of many German and European brands, traditional food shops, spas which used to attract royalty and European nobles and a casino located in the opulent Kurhaus.

Along the Rhine in the district of Rheingau, travellers will discover traditional villages with half-timbered houses surrounded by vineyards and hills. And as the Rheingau is one of Germany’s largest producers of wines, they are plenty of opportunities to experience vineyard tours and get initiated to local wine culture.
