Parks and Gardens
Many parks and green spaces in the city centre form the "green lung" of Wiesbaden. For the eyes to enjoy they to stay for a while and stroll around. The park areas reflect the tradition of the English landscape gardens upon which they were modelled.
The Kurpark Wiesbaden, which begins immediately behind the
Kurhaus, was designed in 1852 in the style of an English landscape garden. The pond, where visitors can hire boats, features a man-made island and an impressive six metre tall fountain.
Located within the city's precincts, Neroberg, Wiesbaden's own hillside estate, is one of the city's most popular leisure-time destinations. The 245 metre high hill, on which Neroberg wine flourishes under the management of the Hessian State Wine Estates, offers many rest and recreation options.
