I love Wiesbaden. I grew up there with the U.S. Army. I love Wilhelmstrasse. The Starlight Christmas Market is amazing. It is just the right size...not ginormous like Nuernberg...just right. I love the ferris wheel that they have for Christmas. I believe that the shop keepers in Wiesbaden are much friendlier to Americans than some other military towns in Germany.... More

We loved exploring the shops on Wilhelmstrasse and also enjoyed visiting the World's Largest Cuckoo Clock shop in this area which offered many unique handmade wooden incense smokers and handcrafted cuckoo clocks.

Lots of boutique shops. Near the Altstadt area so you can cover both very easily. Easy to reach by bus and by foot.
