What You Can Expect

Wiesbaden and Mainz Day Trip from Frankfurt

Admire the Russian Orthodox St Elizabeth Church at the top of Neroberg Mountain!

Hop aboard your luxury coach in central Frankfurt and travel southwest to Wiesbaden, your first destination of the day. The capital of the German state of Hessen, Wiesbaden is known for being a historical spa town, with a collection of hot springs scattered around its center.

Take a stroll around the sophisticated little town with your guide, admiring the elegant Belle Epoque villas and historical Gründerzeit houses that line Wiesbaden’s leafy promenades. Stop outside Kurhaus – the Art Deco spa building that houses Wiesbaden Casino – and hear tales about the famous folk who have paid visits to the city’s glamorous gambling den.

Another popular Wiesbaden attraction is Neroberg Mountain, an 800-foot (244-meter) hill lined with lush forests and parkland. Ride up the hill on the Neroberg Mountain Train – Germany’s oldest water-powered railway – while soaking up spectacular views of Wiesbaden. Stop for lunch (own expense), and then pay a visit to the Russian Orthodox St Elizabeth Church with your guide. Hear of the Duke Adolf of Nassau who commissioned the church to be built as a memorial to his wife, and admire the extravagant décor inside.

Travel down the hill on the Neroberg Mountain Train, and then board your coach for your short journey to Mainz – an old city just south of the Rhine River. Stretch your legs on a walking tour, taking in the ornate Baroque churches, half-timbered houses and pretty cobblestone alleyways that typify Mainz city center. Pass Gutenberg Museum – home to a staggering collection of printing artifacts – and then visit St Stephen’s Church to see its stained-glass windows, designed by Marc Chagall.

Stroll to St Martin’s Cathedral for a look inside, admiring its Romanesque architecture and collection of religious works of art. After exploring, return to your coach for your journey to Frankfurt, finishing your tour at the start point.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

A very interesting private tour to two historic and picturesque towns not too far from Frankfurt. As my wife and I were the only tour partecipants, we were taken around in a limo, and had the driver/guide all to ourselves. He took us to visit the important sites, and we were also given free time to further explore any place that caught our fancy.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2013

The guide was very uninformed about most of the monuments in Wiesbaden. Did not take us to Mainz. Almost crashed the car in a red light. He also made me pay for his drink in the Cofe shop he took us there. Save your money.
