This colorful travel poster captures six of the historical highlights of Wiesbaden, Germany, a gorgeous spa town in the valley of the Rhein River just a short drive from bustling Frankfurt. Clockwise from top left, the Russian Orthodox Church — known locally as the Griechische Kapelle — stands sentinel in the hills north of the town. The Kurhaus has drawn generations worth of visitors to its calming and rejuvenating parkland setting. The imposing Marktkirche, which survived Allied bombing in WWII, is center stage in Wiesbaden’s main square. One of main gateways to Wiesbaden, the Hauptbahnhof stands amid verdant settings. Luisenplatz is home to the city’s oldest Catholic Church, St. Bonifatius and an equestrian statue that honors those how died fighting Napoleon. And finally, the classical 19th-century Nerobergbahn funicular still takes visitors up to the heights of Neroberg for impressive views of all of Wiesbaden.
