Kochbrunnen featuring a garden and heritage architecture as well as a family

The symbol of Wiesbaden is this beautiful, shell-shaped fountain through which the waters of the town’s most famous hot spring flow.

The Kochbrunnen fountain channels the waters of the most renowned of Wiesbaden’s famous hot springs. This simple and elegant stone structure, shaped like a shell, is one of the most famous sights in the whole city. It is a very fitting emblem for a place known for its refined style and understated sophistication. Join the hundreds of thousands of people who dip their fingers into its warm waters every year, hoping to experience their fabled restorative powers.

Wiesbaden’s hot springs were documented as early as the Roman period, and the warm thermal waters that flow beneath the city have continued to draw large numbers of visitors from all over Europe throughout the centuries. The number of hot springs here was once well into triple figures, but today there are only around 15 left. Notice how much attention passersby pay to the Kochbrunnen and the other sources of thermal water here and you will soon realize how important the hot springs are to locals and tourists alike.

Sample the water from the Kochbrunnen to understand the unique quality it has. The water is safe to drink, although it is not advised to drink large quantities of it as it is rather salty. It is also filled with minerals, which are rumored to have positive effects on a wide range of health complaints. These same minerals cause it to leave a reddish tinge on certain surfaces, and you will see this on the Kochbrunnen itself.

Visit the ornate and historic Kaiser Friedrich Spa and experience the warm waters of the Kochbrunnen another way. This incredible building houses a variety of pools. Choose to relax in one heated by the water from the Kochbrunnen hot spring, or go even further by bathing in pure thermal water.

The Kochbrunnen stands on Kranzplatz. Take the time to admire the beautiful Neoclassical buildings that surround the fountain. Stop to take photos of the impressive Palast Hotel, one of the most striking buildings here. Visit the Kochbrunnen for free at any time, and on any day. Its waters are always flowing.
