The Christmas tree in the Kurhaus
"The poinsettia (euphorbia pulcherrima), also called Advent star or Christmas, star is a plant of the spurge species (euphorbia), a member of the euphorbiaceae family." Source: Wikipedia. And the Christmas tree is made from over 2000 fresh red poinsettias, transforming the stately foyer of the Kurhaus into a glowing red.
In eager anticipation, guests and locals alike ask about this attraction in the foyer of the Kurhaus at the beginning of November every year. This atmospheric sensation has been part and parcel of the pre-Christmas Kurhaus for 25 years attracting not only nursery schools, schoolchildren and guided tours, but also visitors from near and far. The enchanting poinsettia tree which is approximately 8.15 meters high is unique and a beloved emblem of the Wiesbaden Kurhaus.
