Wiesbaden is a charming town known for its 19th century spa atmosphere and casino. It is situated at the river Rhein and is an ideal starting point for excursions into the unique region of Rheingau. The area is famous for its wines, manor houses and castles, as well as the fascinating view over the valley.

The oldest funicular railway
The Nerobergbahn is the oldest water-powered funicular railway in Germany. Since 1888, the railway has transported more than 200,000 people to the 245 meter high Neroberg.

Sparkling wine since 1856
The sparkling wine cellar Henkell was one of the first companies to produce sparkling wine in Germany. In 2014, the company's turnover amounted to 700 million euros and by now, Henkell is the world’s market leader with exports to more than 100 countries.

The longest colonnade in Europe
The Kurhaus Colonnade in Wiesbaden is the longest colonnade in Europe. The building, from 1826, measures 129 meters. Today, by the way, the hall houses the gaming machines of the casino.

Finn, our Senior Sales & Project Manager, recommends:
Enjoy a short tour with the historic water driven Nerobergbahn from the Nerobergtal to Wiesbaden´s “own househill” Neroberg.
After exploring the “Bergpark” (Hillpark) and the historic Russian Orthodox church you can enjoy a very nice view to the city of Wiesbaden  while enjoying a typical “Rüdesheimer coffee”,  a coffee specialty with brandy and whipped cream.
