Did a old city tour, amazed by all the half timber and fill house that have been around for hundreds of years. The red sandstone church is worth a look at, not far from there is a monument with a fox head hidden in one of the helmets. The Gutenberg museum was well worth the time and effort to see... More

It's a nice place. Lots of old buildings. Lots of restaurants. Some shopping. A nice area to be spending some time in. High heels not recommend.

Wiesbaden's old city, unlike many of other large German cities in the region, is pretty well intact and the parts that had been destroyed in the war were built again in the style as to not ruin the look of this part of town, in the oldest parts you will find winding alleys with small cozy buildings.

This town is absolutely stunning. You can see the history clearly. I recommend going to the Schaefer coffee shop in the morning for bread and coffee, it has good company. Over all a beautiful town.

We found Wiesbaden's old town the best by far compared to Frankfurt, Mainz, Worms, Koblenz and Heidelberg, all nice in different ways but Wiesbaden is the best. It is very open and has wonderful buildings at every turn - and it isn't full of cranes and scaffolding (like Frankfurt and Bad Kreuzbach when we visited). Nice parks too within a... More

I am growing real fond of the Altstadt of German cities. This one comes as yet another example. It is cozy, it is charming and it is mind blowing. It is a must see attraction if you stroll in Wiesbaden, and it gives you access to all its nice monuments and churches.
