Wiesbaden is a city in the western German state of Hessen. It is only 40 mins by train from Frankfurt Airport and is a great place to explore for culture and culinary delights.
This walks starts at the railway station and the centre of the city is only 15-20 min walk away. There is a lovely market square and park to explore, with many cafes to sit outside, enjoy refreshments and watch the world go by.
From the station, the main road leads on towards the city centre, passing in front of the Congress centre, a multi-purpose exhibition/ conference hall. On the opposite side of the road is the Natural History Museum, which is wheelchair accessible. From here, turn left into the market place. A farmers market is held here every Wednesday and Saturday.
The market square is bustling with cafes and bars and here you can find the Tourist Information and accessible loos (you do need to get a Euro Key for the toilets in Germany – much like our RADAR keys in England.These are available from this the CBF website).
From the market square there are many attractions to see, such as the cuckoo clock which strikes every half hour and the Cinema, which shows old classic films. It is easy to spend a couple of days in Wiesbaden, but our barrier free walk will give you a flavour of what the city has to offer and will help you get your bearings. A map showing the location of accessible toilets is available from the tourist information centre. Be warned – this is a shortened walk…. I was wheeling on average 6 miles a day exploring Wiesbaden!
