Former royal palace now serves as Hessian State Parliament
Jun 2019
Completed in 1841 as the principal city residence of the Dukes of Nassau. Over the years the palace has been used as a Prussian Royal residence, military administrative center, and since 1945 serves as Hessian State Parliament. This building is on one side of the Markplatz area with the Neues Rathaus across the way.

Cute little (overlooked) palace
May 2017 • Solo
The city palace is nowadays used as State Parliament of Hesse, but guided tours are offered typically on Saturday. Shortly after my visit a thorough renovation of the building has been started. According to the webpage during that time most of the rooms can unfortunately not been visited. It is not posted, when the renovation is supposed to be finished or when other rooms can be visited again. Otherwise the visit lasts around 1 h, it is a guided tour in German and it is for free. The city palace used to be the winter palace of the dukes of Nassau, but later was used as residence of the German emperors. Although the palace is not large, the rooms are nicely decorated. Unfortunately up to today the city palace is pretty much overlooked by almost everybody (just see the low numbers of reviews here). After the tour through the historic rooms the visit ends in the parliament of Hesse,

Located by Marktplatz

This building is on one side of the Markplatz area with the Neues Rathaus across the way.

Interesting white building with its stark appearance compared to other buildings in the area. It was built in the 1840's as a residence for the Dukes of Nassau.

The state parliament of Hesse is now located here.

Luxurious interiors
Jun 2016 • Solo
From outside the palace looks like a pretty mediocre example of classicism. However, it should be noted that the Palace together with the Marktkirche, the Old and New town halls actually closes the space in the main town square, Schlossplatz. This is a three-storey building consisting of two wings converging at rounded corner. Together with the adjoining hospital and several other buildings it made up a single complex of the Imperial residence in Wiesbaden, which then changed its purpose - up to the mobilization point during the war, military headquarters, and something else in a similar spirit. The building now houses the Parliament of Hessen - Wiesbaden is the capital of this German region. However, the most remarkable in the Palace are the interiors of all of its 145 rooms. To say that they are luxurious, it means to say nothing. Especially impressive are wall and ceiling paintings on ancient stories. In such a splendor elected representatives of the German people had to work much better.
