ice skating rink near Lindsey AS
Does anyone remember the ice skating rink around Lindsey Air Station area? I used to go there when I lived in Wiesbaden in the early 80's. But, now, I can vaguely recall it. I'm writing a book set back then and I'd like to be as accurate as possible. So, any details would help. Thanks! Missing it all, even after all these years.

Could this be the place? Here in Diez?
Re: ice skating rink near Lindsey AS
Hi Katherine: Yes I also remember the iceskating rink I believe it was right off Hockeheimer about a block from the old athletic fields. I went to school there in the 70's at Lindsey Air Station. The best years of my childhood. If you google Lindsey Air Station 1970's map, one will come up and you can see what I am talking about. I remember skating there late mornings (this would be a field trip) and the German children would going home for the day (around noon) while we were there skating. They would walk right past us at the rink and I just remember thinking how lucky they were getting to go home so early. Anyway I am pretty sure it was off that street.
Travel Tips for Wiesbaden
One of the great things about a town full of some of the richest people in Germany is the preponderance of fantastic cars on the streets. On a sunny afternoon like the one when I visited brought out a horde of young men in the modern convertible sports cars, but it was the classics like this Rolls Royce Silver Cloud that I enjoyed the most. It has to be said that the last place I expected to see one of these beauties again was on the streets of a small town in Germany.
Library whith changing expositions
The Landesbibliothek is located in one more beautyful building testifying the rich times before World War I. Besides having a look into the daily news, you may watch the actual exposition placed in the entrance and foyer dependencies, related to some cultural, literary or editorial theme which you can look at on the homepage. Free entrance.

Middle Eastern bistros/ restaurants
You reach some of the best Turkish restaurants whith the buses 3, 6, or 33, stop Michelsberg. In the street going down to the right or
Wellritzstr.: Harput (not serving alcoholic drinks), and some bistros. Urfa, a few Euro cheaper.
Bismarckring (end of Wellritzstr. to the left): Balkan Grill
From Hauptbahnhof Buses 4, 14, 27, 45 to "Bismarckring". Walking back, on the corner of Walramstr. is the restaurant Cappadocia, from which I reccomend the "Tagesteller", the daily stew, served whith rice, salad and bread for only 5 Euro. And the Habib, in front of the bus stop, where you can have Lebanese food in home made quality; falafel and shawarma are sometimes for only 2 Euro.
The best white bread in town is sold by bakery Firat (turning down left from Wellritzstrasse). One pide (nearly 500 g) for 80 cent.
Other fine baked things are to be found at rather low prices at Günay, on the corner of Wellritzstr./ Schwalbacher Str. There a pide costs only 70 cent and nice specialities to taste are their Kekse whith cheese and herbs (Käse und Kräuter) and nut-cinammon (Nuß mit Zimt) for about 40 cent each.
A traditional restaurant/wine house
The traditional feel begins with the exterior decorations and continues into the warm dark wood-panelled interior of a very traditional German wine pub The word "gemütlich" comes to mind ... there is live music on the weekends! There is a large outdoor terrace that is popular with groups in the summer.
Neues Rathaus - New City Hall
The neo-renaissance New City Hall was built between 1884 - 1887 by Georg von Hauberisser, who designed the Munich New City Hall as well.
The facade was much more pompous than that of the neo- classical City Palace, but was damaged badly during the Second World War and rebuilt later without its dominating main pediment.
