Wiesbaden

An abundance of architectonical gems, lots of green spaces, and short distances: Hessens state capital knows how to score with an excellent infrastructure and attractive locations an advantage that is just as much appreciated by attendants of trade fairs, conventions and conferences as it is by city travellers.

These make Wiesbaden a sought-after venue for large conventions and a popular location for branch offices of renowned companies and providers of logistics services.

With its more than 270,000 inhabitants, Wiesbaden is one of Germanys major cities, teeming with sporting, cultural or social life. The people of Wiesbaden love partying, especially together with their guests who will enjoy one of the numerous festivals after the trade fairs, conventions and conferences. The event calendar of Hessens 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 Wilhelmstraenfest, which is called a classic among Germanys 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 citys 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 Wiesbadens landmarks is a sought-after location for conferences and symposiums. It is the venue of choice of facilitators who invite to large international conventions with accompanying trade fairs in the nearby Rhein-Main-Hallen Wiesbaden. A representative frame provides also the hunting lodge Jagdschloss Platte, which is only a few minutes drive away and has become very popular also for presentations and festive events, thanks to its unconventional architecture and multi-facetted usability.

It is certain that Wiesbadens 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.

The Rheingau further captivates with cultural highlights: There are monasteries, castles and palaces steeped in history which quite often invite to enjoy contemporary culinary treats.

Famous are, for example, the Schlemmer-Wochen, gourmet feast weeks, which combine exquisite art of cookery with the Rheingau Riesling in utmost perfection. Not less seductive is the large offer of wine taverns called Strauwirtschaften which are run at certain times of the year by local winegrowers and stand for comfort and hospitality.

Wiesbaden Experience

Wiesbaden is many-faceted: It is the state capital of Hessen, a congress and health centre surrounded by green countryside, a place of residence offering very high quality of life, as well as a town of mansions and of wine. Once a spa of the Romans, todays Wiesbaden has been shaped mainly by two epochs: The rise to the chic World Destination for Treatment and Cure in the 19th century, when nobility and wealthy burgesses from all over Europe came together here at summer time to seek healing but also, and in particular, entertainment. That prime period ended with World War I. After decades in crisis the town then rose a new un suspectedly from the year 1945 on, in a different way which also shaped it strongly. Although health care still plays a major role in Wiesbaden today, the town has meanwhile also become an important location for industry and commercial services and, being the capital city of Hessen, a political centre of the Federal Republic of Germany.
