Charlotte, Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, sold the palace to the State of Prussia in 1935. Heavily damaged during World War II, it was renovated and partly reconstructed between 1980 and 1982 by the State of Hesse. It is now used by the state government for representation purposes and houses the state’s historic preservation agency.
You will first be amazed by its beautiful pink-ish coloured wall from miles away. But do walk closer. Pay attention to the details on the wall, and the statues on the roof. I was so lucky that it was quite sunny when I visited the palace. Blue sky, green grassland, pink palace, perfecto.
The palace is located in the “Schlosspark” (palace-park). Beside photography, it is a wonderful place if you wish to have a jog. Reading on the bench is nice too, I reckon.
Transport: There are several bus routes serving the area, and the bus stop is just near the palace by the river. If you are not too confident in taking the bus, you can also take the S-Bahn from Mainz or Frankfurt and get off at “Wiesbaden Ost” Station and walk to the palace. It takes about 25-30 minutes.
