The events calendar of the state capital is colourful and bursting with things to visit: sports events that draw huge crowds such as the Ironman 70.3 are just as popular as the Theatrium, the "classic" among Germany's street festivals, the ten-day Rheingau Wine Festival, the Wiesbaden City Festival that guides its visitors to the most beautiful squares and quarters in the city or the Twinkling Star Christmas Market during Advent.
Wiesbaden is also a modern health resort with a longstanding tradition. Even the Romans appreciated the healing and therapeutic effect of the 26 hot springs. Wiesbaden has transformed its good reputation as a "classic spa" into a recognised centre for the treatment of rheumatic and orthopaedic disorders. You can experience the therapeutic diversity of the hot springs in Wiesbaden's thermal baths. Beyond that, numerous parks and green belts invite you to linger and relax.
