#Come2Germany: Wiesbaden

My next #Come2Germany destination took me to the stunning city of Wiesbaden!

From the moment I stepped off the train, I knew I was going to love this city. The architecture and people immediately drew me in. There are certain places you travel to and for some strange reason, they feel like home.

Wiesbaden was one of them.

After I checked into my hotel, the Radisson Blue - which by the way, is the most beautiful hotel I've ever stayed in, I met up with the Wiesbaden's Marketing Director, Yvonne Skala, for dinner and drinks in the city center.

We had dinner at a cute corner restaurant called Wenzels.  I had such a great evening with her. We talked for hours about everything- life, relationships, blogging, traveling- you name it. It felt like I'd known her for years. I wished I would've taken a picture with her that night, but we were so engulfed in the conversation that I forgot to ask. Perhaps that will be my excuse to visit Wiesbaden again!

The next morning I woke up early and ventured into the city plaza. Whenever I travel, I love to walk around and explore. No set agenda. Just walk and take in as much as I can- the sights, smells and sounds.

During my little stroll, I came across a cute Farmer's market. I hadn't had breakfast yet, so the timing was perfect. It was hard to decide on what to eat with all the different cheese and bread options, but I opted for a healthy fruit juice instead.

After a few hours of sightseeing, I went back to my hotel and took a much needed nap. If you follow me on Snapchat, then you already saw how amazing my room was at the Radisson Blu. I got spoiled and was given a Junior Suite just for little ol' me! I could've  stayed in my bed all day. Thankfully, I set my alarm and woke up in time to get ready and meet up with my tour guide, Patrick, to do some evening sightseeing.

Wiesbaden is equally as beautiful in the day time as it is in the night time. There is so much history and culture found in every corner.

Our evening tour took us to Balthasar Ress for some wine tasting and light bites. Patrick and I enjoyed a private sitting area with plenty of wine and the company of the restaurant owner.

The next day was all about relaxation. I was treated to a few spa treatments, including a footbath and massage at the Radisson Blu Spa.

Wiesbaden Toursim certainly knows how to treat their guests!

From day one, I felt like a princess with their generosity and hospitality. The hotel staff was also top notch. I truly felt like a VIP.

Next stop: Baden Baden!
