Is there an office at the Weisbaden train station that I can leave my suitcase for a couple of days while I hike and bike? If so, how much per day?
Re: Bag storage?
The webpage from the German railroad (DB) does not specify exactly what kind of service they provide in the main station in Wiesbaden. However the webpage says "Schließfächer / DB Gepäck Center" which translated means "lockers /DB luggage centre".
No information about price; be aware that there are train stations which have a time limit for locker usage.
Travel Tips for Wiesbaden
The Flying Dutchman
About four or five years ago I missed a unique opportunity.
In Frankfurt I went to an afternoon performance of Der fliegende Holländer (The Flying Dutchman) by Richard Wagner, and realized too late that I could have taken the train to Wiesbaden and seen a different production of the same opera that same evening. (It's Wagner's shortest opera, and still has a lot of Bellini influence that he later rejected, so seeing it twice in one day would have been no problem.)
I did see the Wiesbaden production eventually. Since it was sold out I had to sit way off to the side, so I didn't get a complete view of the stage -- there was a bright red sailing ship on a black background or visa versa -- but it was still very good because that was the evening they had Simon Estes in as a guest singer, the only time I've ever heard him live.

UP INTO THE HILLS
If you go up into the hills above Wiesbaden, there's a short tram ride and an interesting cemetery for fallen soldiers of both World Wars. One tombstone read...killed in Vilna - 1943. Here was someone who had fought against my relatives there. They weren't any luckier than this man.

The St Bonifatius church is one of the most striking buildings in the city, but doesn't even get a mention in the tourist guide books that I found. It's pleasant location at the end of Luisenplatz singles it out for attention, as do the two grand spires that stretch out high into the Wiesbaden skyline. The Church was very busy and noisy when I was there, and apparently has seating for 4500 people, making it a considerable size and the biggest church in the region. The building was first started in 1828, but suffered a collapse only a few years later in 1831. After sitting in ruins for some years, a collection of the townspeople raised enough money to build the current one, which was constructed in 1845 in a mixture of Romanesque and Gothic styles. The two 65m towers were only finally completed in 1866, and the electric clock added in 1890.
