Wiesbaden Travel Guide, Germany

Wiesbaden is the capital of Hesse region in Germany, but this is not what makes the city special. As its name says (in German, baden means bath), Wiesbaden is a spa city. Even centuries ago, the city was famed in Europe for its therapeutic baths. In Ancient times, the Romans discovered the thermal springs that proved to be veritable goldmines later on in history. Nowadays Wiesbaden is a popular tourist destination comparable to many other German metropolises. Wiesbaden’s small town charm and relative nearness to major cities such as Frankfurt makes it a great place to start exploring the province, and also the perfect opportunity to give yourself a healthy spa treatment. This Wiesbaden Travel Guide will help you plan your holyday by providing information on transport and accommodation in the city.

Wiesbaden Travel Guide - Transport

The closest airport to Wiesbaden is Frankfurt International Airport. There are buses from the airport to Wiesbaden and the fee is affordable, but if you arrive late at night you will have no other choice but take a taxi, which will probably cost you around 50 euro. Wiesbaden might not be overly large, but it is very easily accessible from the neighboring German cities. It takes a fifteen minutes drive from Mainz to reach Wiesbaden, about half an hour from Frankfurt and an hour from Cologne.

German highways are very well maintained and fitted with detailed signs, but if you’d rather not drive, there are several other transport options for you. You can take the train from practically any German city to Wiesbaden, and if you reserve your ticket three days in advance, you’ll receive a decent price cut. Wiesbaden is very pedestrian-friendly, with large areas with no car access. The Altstadt, or the old town, as well as the Fußgängerzone, a sort of open air mall, can be easily explored on foot.

Wiesbaden Travel Guide - Accommodation

While there are a lot of hotels to choose from in Wiesbaden, none of them will be particularly easy on your wallet. A night in a low budget hotel is around fifty euro, and there are not too many options available in terms of hostels. Motel One, a few minutes from the train station, is a decent hotel with nice breakfast options and a lobby that’s open 24/7. If you’re looking for something more posh, this Wiesbaden Travel Guide recommends Hotel Drei Lilien, a small and cozy family-run establishment with excellent facilities and arguably the best home-cooked breakfast in the city.
