"Wohnung" in Wiesbaden
I am looking for a furnished appartment in Wiesbaden for the coming months, so I thought to ask in this forum, along with my internet searches. Any idea or website to look? You can post pages in the german language as I am fluent in it.
Re: "Wohnung" in Wiesbaden
thats a really good page ( I am original coming from this area )
search for "Wohnungen zur Miete suchen" then Wiesbaden ..
Re: "Wohnung" in Wiesbaden
Additionally you could try
Immobilienscout24.de is generally better, though.
Re: "Wohnung" in Wiesbaden
immobilienscout24.de is great for unfurnished appartments, but it does not include so much of "moblierte". Btw, I always wondered how they succeed into including so much advertisements from every part of Germany...
I found more of furnished in http://www.immonet.de/ but there are also some local agencies with pretty good websites.
Thank you both.
Travel Tips for Wiesbaden
cloth washing in Wiesbaden
A very convenient laundry to wash your clothes is
eco- express, open from 8 am to 9 pm
You go in, look for a free machine (for 6 kg), fill it and go to the paying machine. First pay 2,50 Euro, then press the number of the machine your clothes are in. On the side you can get a good helping of washing powder for 50 cent. Or you buy 1 litre for about 1.49 Euro at Plus or other discounters.
After having pressed the button, still go and press the button on the machine after it is closed and filled whith detergent.
The laundry has also machines for 21 kgs (7 Euro) and dryers (2,50 Euro)
I have never heard that there were things stolen or lost. The Adress:
Bismarckring 32 Bus stop: Bleichstrasse or Bismarckring
Take the bus 1 direction Dürerplatz and go to the other side of the street. The laundry is there.
If you come to Bismarckring by the other way (many buses), you will see the ice cream shop of Costantin, which is not bad and not too expensive. From there, walk up the Ring to the right and find the laundry on the other side.
"Ingelheimer Zimmer" at Radisson SAS Hotel
This is not a public room, but if you stay or eat or drink in the Radisson SAS Hotel, you may have the chance to see the "Ingelheimer Zimmer".
This room is famous for its unique wood carvings mainly from Italy and Northern France from the 16th century. The room was taken from the Ingelheim castle a couple of decades ago, where it was used as a dining room.
Radisson SAS Schwarzer Bock Hotel
For the past 3.5 years, Zum Schweijk, seemed to be open for a year, then, it closes for 6 months, then re-open again by a different management although leaving it as the same name. But that didn't mean the quality of food and attitude and service changed. It *was* impeccable!
Then, the restaurant closed for another 6 months, then recently reopened, and is now being run under a different management. The food had changed from Czech/Polish type to German, which is fine but the service is EXTREMELY AWFUL. There were 4 of us, on a weekday, who went to the restaurant and we all thought that it was a good timing since there aren't a lot of people, yet. We placed our orders, 3 of us ordered soup as our first course. It took them almost an hour to bring our first course. How long does it take to bring 3 bowls of soup out? Altogether, from the time that we've been waiting for our food to come which was 1 hour and 30 minutes, that's when we all decided to pay for our bill for the beers and the 3 soups and leave. Boy, did we get such an EXTREMELY DISGUSTING ATTITUDES from the bartender and the waitress. Their excuse is that they're busy. Hello! We got there before the rest of the customers filled-up the restaurant. It's a very small restaurant, too.
Having said all that... we will NOT recommend this restaurant until they change their service and attitudes. Don't tell me that - that's European. We've been living here in Wiesbaden for several years now and traveled (and still traveling) all over Europe, but that was inexcusable for them. None
The new cafe on the block!
About halfway down the walking street and across the street from the store "Oil & Vinegar" is this new, very popular cafe. It has those wonderful big umbrellas that I saw all over Germany and is acquiring a young and trendy crowd. We only drank here, but worthy of note is the changing light display [relatively gentle!] that circles the bar.
The story of the Wiesbaden...
The story of the Wiesbaden Casino begins at the end of the 18th century. It appealed to crowned heads of state, musicians and literati alike: Otto von Bismarck and Feodor Dostoyevsky were among the many who gambled away their royalties here. Dutch writer 'Multatuli' (Eduard Douwes Dekker), Richard Wagner and Elvis Presley all tried their luck in Wiesbaden.
Kaiser Wilhelm II loved the architecture of Wiesbaden and financed some of the beautiful buildings, such as the station and the kurhaus. This was opened in 1907 but partly destroyed in WW2. It was not restored - and then at great expense - until the 1980s. Today the main room of the Casino is one of its most beautiful: filigree woodcarvings, golden friezes, precious woods and crystal chandeliers combine to provide an exceptional atmosphere with the wonderful charm of the Neo-classical.
