We also hit the Christmas market. it was nicely laid out and had several shops to just browse and sip a little Gluhwein. It is not on the scale of Nuremburg or Stuttgart but the downtown... More

I love Wiesbaden. I grew up there with the U.S. Army. I love Wilhelmstrasse. The Starlight Christmas Market is amazing. It is just the right size...not ginormous like Nuernberg...just right. I love the ferris wheel that they have for Christmas. I believe that the shop keepers in Wiesbaden are much friendlier to Americans than some other military towns in Germany.... More

We loved exploring the shops on Wilhelmstrasse and also enjoyed visiting the World's Largest Cuckoo Clock shop in this area which offered many unique handmade wooden incense smokers and handcrafted cuckoo clocks.

This main street of Wiesbaden, named after the German Emperor Wilhelm who visited the city quite often is baptised "La Rue" as Wiesbaden is often described as "Nice of the north", elegant strolling under old trees with street cafes and many high class brand shops. Here the rich and the beautiful are parading

Lots of boutique shops. Near the Altstadt area so you can cover both very easily. Easy to reach by bus and by foot.

Wilhelmstrasse has a whole string of upmarket/designer shops on one side and elegant buildings with gardens and fountains on the other. It's well worth a leisurely stroll.

This road is seriously the definition of Wiesbaden. You can never get lost on this road. You see everything on this road. You pass the beatiful Kurhaus, incredible artquitecture buildings, shops, a very clean and romantic park near the kurhaus and streets next to it that lead you into the heart of Wiesbaden, or your downtown. During the summer, this... More
