On a cool February day you don't expect to see streaming clouds

There are many so called hot springs that you have to take someone's word that one it was maybe Lukewarm. This fountain is steaming in front of you. Do your have and it is genuinely hot! During carnival season, might not be the best time to taste!

three thousand years of history right in front of you.

I have actually been to Wiesbaden numerous times over the last 40 years, and I never tire of visiting this place. The hot mineral water is just bubbling up in front of you and you can visualize a roman soldier bathing in this water at this location. Even the mineral smell harkens back to olden times.

Highlights from Wiesbaden

If you want to see some of the highlights of the city you need to come to this square. Then you can actually observe while the town receive the name and even try the thermal water

Located in the center of Wiesbaden

The Kochbrunnen fountain on Kranzplatz a place often frequented by the health-conscious and tourists. It is Wiesbaden's most famous thermal spring, because this prolific spring emits thermal water said to have a whole series of health benefits. Only a small portion of the water feeds the drinking fountain in the Kochbrunnenpavillon and the Kochbrunnenspringer. Most of the water is diverted to the treatment plant at the Kaiser-Friedrich-Therme. From there, it moves on to the city's thermal water network, which branches out in all directions. It is used both for healing purposes and to heat the Wiesbaden town hall, and a couple of other locations in the city.

Kochbrunnenspringer. The sinter is formed by the mineral deposits in the water. which Wiesbaden was famous in Roman times and which were used to dye hair. The reddish-yellow layer increases in thickness by seven centimeters per year. It needs to be removed regularly so that it does not crush the shell-shaped fountain.

Center of Wiesbaden

A so called "must see" in Wiesbaden. In the city center opposite the "Staatskanzlei of Hessen" you find the "Kochbrunnen", a water source which produces 67° C hot water, containing healthy natrium-chloride minerals which is supposed to have healthy effects..

Open air thermal water fountains and drinking fountain. Interesting to see after reading up on the history. We will take visitors to see this when they come to town.

Interesting structure and small fountain
May 2018 • Family
You can just drop by, seeing the buildings with the cupola and the burbling fountain. You may not enjoy the taste of the water!
