Road Cycling Highlight
As the "most beautiful spa house" in Germany, Emperor Willhelm II praised the neoclassical magnificent building, whose construction devoured almost six million gold marks at the beginning of the 20th century. While the predecessor building designed by Christain Zais a century ago, with its large social hall, was still classically simple, the architect of today's Kurhaus, Friedrich von Thiersch, did not save on the opulent interiors. Thanks to the faithful restoration of 65 million marks, destroyed by air raids in World War II, the splendidly furnished rooms of different styles - from historicism to French Empire style to naturalism - can still be admired today.
However, today's Kurhaus is more than just a splendid backdrop and, thanks to state-of-the-art event technology, provides the framework for a wide range of opportunities. As a cultural and congress center, national and international congresses, conferences, indoor and open-air concerts, exhibitions, classical music events, festivals and balls are held in a historic ambience, as well as the Wiesbadner casino in the Kurhaus.In front of the main entrance there is the so-called Bowling Green, a lawn area with two fountains, dubbed by the English spa guests at that time, framed by the theater and spa colonnades and formerly a row of old plane trees. Behind the Kurhaus starts the elongated spa park with a concert shell and the Kurpark pond.kulturland-rheingau.de/denkmaeleraussichtspunkte/kurhaus-wiesbaden
