Wiesbaden: City Highlights Guided Walking Tour

7. Wiesbaden: City Highlights Guided Walking Tour

Whether we go to the office or to the supermarket: we use entrances every day, we walk through doors, but only notice them casually, out of habit and because modern entrances pretend they don't exist: the glass doors of the hotel entrance open by themselves . In the late 19th century, when Wiesbaden became a big city, things were different: entrances received visitors and served as a means of self-portrayal. The portal of the Landeshaus wants to impress with its mighty portico. It demonstratively marks the threshold between outside and inside, the transition from public to semi-public space. The apartment buildings on Gutenbergplatz, whose entrances are guarded by obelisks, are similar: the visitor automatically stands at attention when he approaches the wrought-iron front doors. House entrances are built manners, they tell something about the habitus of the (former) residents and the change in our self-image: modernity attaches no importance to representation - and falls into the house with the door: Even the apartment buildings on the upper Klopstockstraße from the 1920s do without on the driveway and in the front yard. The two churches in the district show how important the staging of the entrance can be, even today: the gates of the Dreifaltigkeitskirche, like the columned portal of the Lutherkirche, prepare the visitor for entering another, sacred space - he involuntarily pauses . With Christopher Schwarz, member of the jury for the German Architecture Prize.

Wiesbaden: Footsteps of Brahms Hike

10. Wiesbaden: Footsteps of Brahms Hike

The hike follows the footsteps of Brahms in the surroundings of Wiesbaden, in forest and meadow idylls, and traces the composer in the interrelationship of composing and nature, society and urban life. One of the most important and influential composers of the second half of the 19th century, Brahms composed a remarkable number of choral, orchestral, organ and chamber works. He also created numerous piano pieces and exercises for piano players. His works are mainly assigned to the Romantic era. He regularly spent summers in Wiesbaden and was close friends with Clara and Robert Schumann. The composer loved fresh air and scenic areas and was a great lover of nature. Living on the ground floor or on a slope, at the edge of a forest or park, armed with a silent keyboard and a notebook, Johannes Brahms began his daily work. Summer residences with attractive landscapes were popular with him, including Wiesbaden. He appreciated sociability, but also the originality of nature. Short-sighted and bare-headed, with trouser legs that were too short and in shirt sleeves, he walked briskly on his nature hiking and composing paths - paths and routes in the vicinity of Wiesbaden, where he was drawn by the charms of nature, the rustling of the trees, sun and water, the scents surrounded by flowers and trees with wide views. Why did he go out as a composer? Didn't musicians, artists and writers find their inspiration in nature? Does a craftsman unnecessarily exchange his workshop for being outside in nature? Brahms says: "...there is no work without hard work..." The unrest of the city drove him out into solitude, the sociability lured him. At the age of 14 he was already working as a song accompanist and piano teacher… Brahms only allowed completed works to speak. Only late did he become friends with symphonic works. Some of his symphonies are not easy to access. Clara Schumann raved about his third symphony, which he wrote in the summer of 1883: "...How one is enveloped in the mysterious magic of forest life from beginning to end!...I would like to call it a forest idyll...that one feels completely spun in everything the delights of nature". Dedicated to Wiesbaden, the work could also be described as the “national anthem of Wiesbaden”.
