Wiesbaden and its suburb Biebrich
Wiesbaden, capital of the federal state of Hessen, is an economic, cultural and social center in the heart of the Rhine-Main region. As a former internationally renowned spa town it will win you over with its elegant historical architecture with generous parks, rich springs and countless mansions from the 19th and 20th century, the reason why many refer to Wiesbaden as "Nice of the North".
Thanks to its favourable situation between the Taunus hills, the Rhine river and the Rheingau wine-growing region, there is wide range of leisure activities on offer for residents. Modern city development concepts, the protection of the environment and nature, as well as a health promotion policy are further strong points of Wiesbaden.
The suburb Biebrich, located along the Rhine river, is a lively area, a potpourri of numerous businesses and services and wonderful shopping opportunities for its 36,500 inhabitants, who can also enjoy the many cafes and restaurants.
The newly designed river bank is attractive - why not go for a walk there or just relax on one of the many benches.
Rheingau und Taununs
The Rheingau entices not only with its hilly vineyards, wine bars and restaurants but also with wonderful opportunities for cycling and hiking, for example on the premium hiking trail Rheinsteig®.
The large forests of the Taunus promise true experiences of nature together with a little bit of history, as everywhere you will find traces of the Celts, Romans and Germanic people.
The capital of the federal state of Rheinland-Pfalz is only minutes away by car across one of the river bridges. Its appearance differs greatly from Wiesbaden, for example with its many half-timbered houses in the old town center. The city is dominated by its magnificent 1000-year-old cathedral. Mainz, like Wiesbaden, is surrounded by beautiful landscapes which are sure to offer something to everyone.
Frankfurt am Main, the dynamic and international financial hub and exhibition center impresses with Germany's most imposing skyline. But there is more to this city of contrast: Not far from the high-rise buildings you will find cosy pubs dedicated to the famous Ebbelwoi (a special type of apple cidre) as well as historical sights, not to forget the countless destinations for lovers of nature, art, animals or history.
