Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
This is a great introduction to one of Germany's most beautiful spa towns – Wiesbaden – that's popular for its thermal baths, Roman buildings and Italian flair! It also includes the must-visit Wiesbaden Casino inside the Kurhaus.
What You Can Expect
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.
