Churches and Religion
Churches and religious groups offer a spiritual home; they accompany people in their daily lives and especially in special moments of life like wedding, birth or death. They help those in need and offer identification and orientation. Their educational programmes and social institutions address themselves to members and interested residents. Furthermore churches and religious groups are an important part of the social and cultural life.
The churches in Wiesbaden symbolize, in a very special way, the social and architectural development of this city, which is the capital city of the state of Hesse.
The Market Church was deliberately erected opposite the City Palace as a symbol of the thriving bourgeoisie in the Duchy of Nassau; with its almost 100 meter tall main steeple, it continues to dominate the cityscape.
