Hessen’s state capital knows how to score with an excellent infrastructure and

location for branch offices of renowned companies and providers of logistics
With its more than 270,000 inhabitants, Wiesbaden is one of Germany’s major
cities, teeming with sporting, cultural or social life. The people of Wiesbaden

calendar of Hessen’s state capital is colourful – and full to bursting: Sporting
events with public appeal such as the Ironman 70.3 and numerous highlights in
the area of high-performance and event sports are just as popular as, for example,
the “Wilhelmstraßenfest”, which is called a classic among Germany’s street festivals,
the Rheingau Wine Festival, which lasts for ten days and attracts about 100
wine growers, or the Wiesbaden City Festival, which shows the city’s most beautiful
places and quarters to its visitors. Every year, the International May Festival
brings internationally renowned ensembles and compagnies to the Hessen State
Theatre at Wiesbaden, and the Rheingau Music Festival (RMF) attracts famous
orchestras and conductors to the Rheingau and the state capital year by year.
The Kurhaus Wiesbaden accommodates one of those stages which make world-famous
musicians feel particularly well. At the same time, the Kurhaus – one of Wiesbaden’s
landmarks – is a sought-after location for conferences and symposiums. It is
the venue of choice of facilitators who invite to large international conventions

It is certain that Wiesbaden’s visitors do not have to do without sporting
activities! There is a rich variety of sports facilities, as well as numerous
hiking, wine and nature trails, which invite the visitor to discover Wiesbaden
and the region splendidly on foot.

Not less seductive is the large offer of wine taverns called “Straußwirtschaften”
which are run at certain times of the year by local winegrowers and stand for
comfort and hospitality.
