“Meeting friends, enjoying a summer’s day and taking a little time out – Wiesbaden’s summer market is once again just the right place for this in the middle of Wiesbaden for the next three months. We have come up with a diverse program that has great surprises in store for young and old. In the 2nd year, Wiesbaden’s Summer Market will be even greener with our new Chill Lounge,” says Otto Barth Jr. who runs the Summer Market on behalf of the City of Wiesbaden.

Have a good time and get to know the culinary delights of the twin cities at the same time

Berlin, Görlitz, Breslau, Fondettes, Montreux, San Sebastian and Tonbridge Wells… Wiesbaden has twinned with many cities. At the specialties stand, there is a weekly rotation of delicacies from the regions of Wiesbaden’s twin cities.

Culturally, the summer market has even more to offer this year: Already on June 1, performs from 17 clock the solo musician Rick Cheyenne from the Rheingau. For June 2, DJ Patrick Doré is on the program. On June 3, Mario Carillo will entertain visitors.

The detailed program is available on a daily basis at:

City Festival

Diverse, colourful and varied – with opportunities for active participation, wonder, indulgence and entertainment and above all of course celebration: those are the characteristics of the Wiesbaden City Festival which takes place from 22 to 24 September 2023.

The Autumn Market
on the Mauritius Square in the City of Wiesbaden. The combination of autumn decorated stands, artisan and the shopping in the city centre is the result of a high standard. There are more than 50 stands with a different range of products like seasonal fruits and vegetables, handmade jam, sausages and wine. Visitors find handcraft products like jewellery, pictures, glasses, leather, silk paintings, metal work and pottery. Furthermore the could try food from the crepe stands and luncheonettes.

On all three days there is a program for the children and their families like a puppeteer, a huge roll slide where children could slide down in little boxes and walking acts.

The Harvest Festival
will be celebrated during the City Festival in the green areas of the Warmer Damm on Wilhelmstraße. On Saturday and Sunday the Harvest Festival of Wiesbaden Agriculture and the Green Spaces Office will be celebrated in the green areas of the Warmer Damm on Wilhelmstraße. On both days the farmers’ market is open, where agricultural producers and associations introduce themselves and sell fresh products from the fields and the garden. In addition to musical entertainment, interesting facts from the fields of agriculture and crafts are also presented.

The Automobile Exhibition
takes place every year during the city festival. It takes place on the Schlossplatz in front of the Town Hall. More than 20 automotive dealers from the region present their new cars on the square between the Hessian State Parliament and the Town Hall. Singles and families alike will find what they are looking for, from the chic convertible to the expansive Van – and a lot in between. The program offers big and small entertainment, variety and experience.

Charming Wiesbaden

Wiesbaden is a green and elegant city of parks, gardens and villas. Its hot springs have brought tourists to the city since Roman times.

The Kurhaus
Wiesbaden’s Kurhaus is a major focus point at the very center of the city. With its spa assembly rooms and elegant casino, built in 1907, the Kurhaus is an imposing building which is frequently used as a venue for national and international congresses, exhibitions and cultural events. English-style spa gardens extend behind the spa assembly rooms.

Historical old quarter
Narrow winding streets lined with 18th and 19th century buildings run through Wiesbaden’s old quarter. Bäckerbrunnen fountain on Grabenstrasse is now a popular meeting place. The oldest structure in Wiesbaden is the Heidensmauer, or Heathens’ Wall, which is close to the Roman gate. 15 different springs flow into the Kochbrunnen drinking fountain and in the 19th century it was the main place in Wiesbaden to take the waters.

Perfect for shopping
The elegant Wilhelmstrasse is the place to go for exclusive and luxury goods, haute couture, jewellery, accessories for the home and many international designer brands. Taunusstrasse is at the heart of Wiesbaden’s antiques quarter where countless out-of-the-ordinary antique shops are located. The romantic passageways in the old quarter are full of boutiques offering curiosities, the nostalgic and the unusual.

As a regional capital Wiesbaden enjoys a diverse cultural scene. From the European Circus Festival, the Caligari municipal cinema, one of the most beautiful picture houses in Germany, the Wiesbaden School of Music and Art to the Women’s Detective Fiction Prize, Wiesbaden covers pretty much every aspect of vibrant, innovative cutting-edge culture.

Opera, drama and ballet productions form part of the State of Hesse Theater’s comprehensive cultural offering that includes classical works as well as modern music theatre. Because all three of the theater’s stages can be used simultaneously, it is not unusual for four performances to take place on one day.

Getting out of the city
Virtually the whole of Wiesbaden can be seen from Neroberg hill, which is a good starting point for longer walks. Its beautiful lawns are ideal for a picnic and it is a wonderful place to escape from everyday life. Neroberg hill is an ideal starting point for walks through the town forest and is itself an extensive recreation area.

With around 50 animal species and many rare plants, Fasanerie Zoo and Gardens is a popular day out for families.

Tours of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site, leave daily from the Wiesbaden-Biebrich jetty.

Rheingau Wine Festival

The long wait will come to an end this summer: the Rheingau Wine Week Wiesbaden will open its doors again in 2023 from August 11 to 20.

For more than 30 years, the Rheingau Wine Festival, originally initiated by the winegrowers of the Rheingau Region as a promotional event, has turned the center of Wiesbaden into the “longest wine bar in the world” – and represents an attraction for more than ten million visitors. The Rheingau Wine Festival takes place between the Wiesbaden city hall, market church and city palace. Guests could enjoy a sociable, convivial and varied festival with top-class still and sparkling wines and a diverse entertainment programme in an atmospheric setting. Winemakers from the Rheingau and Wiesbaden offer their products for tasting at around 100 stands. With an attractive and sumptuous range of food served at 20 additional stands, caterers ensured that nobody stays hungry.

Moreover, music bands and other show acts provide entertainment on a number of stages and make this Wiesbaden street festival unforgettable.

It is a special atmosphere which make the Rheingau Wine Week a unique experience. Leisurely strolls from one booth to the next, or the conviviality at the wooden bar of an already familiar vintner – here the guest is king and enjoys his or her very personal wine fest experience. This is probably one of the reasons, why the Rheingau Weinwoche draws more and more guests each year.

Inititated 30 or more years ago as a marketing strategy by the Rheingau vintners, this Weinfest has for a long time also established itself as a special highlight for city tours and out-of-town visitors. Apart from the local vintners, Wiesbaden always invites a twin city to present their own wine specialities. This year it will be the city of Kfar Saba in Israel.

“Rheingauer Weinwoche” may be celebrated Sunday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to midnight.

Wiesbaden Flea Market

The Wiesbaden flea market season is open March through October at “Am Parkfeld” in Wiesbaden-Biebrich. Flea markets take place every third Saturday of the month from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. along a flea market mile where useful, artistic, as well as quite a few odd things, curios and bric-à-brac change hands.
