The book ending shows how the cassino was already famous more than a century ago. Perhaps not easy to imagine now but in the XIX century all these 'spa' towns in Germany were the meeting point of aristocracy and crowned heads and Wiesbaden was much favoured by the German Kaiser. The cassino building is worth seeing too and the location... More

This is the famous casino where Dostoevsky lost all his money and therefore had to write in 26 days his Player. However, when you look at this cold and beautiful building in the neoclassical style with elements of modernity, you couldn't feel the shadows of the past, echoes of the past, a passion of excitement. It is quite another casino,... More

Well, gambling in Germany is highly regulated and the "Spielbanks" are Government owned - in a high tax country like Germany, the casino wants to make sure it wins. That means e.g. the Black Jack rules are very house friendly (most of the ones players love in Atlantic City or even Vegas or wherever you won't be able to find... More

Be careful the waters sharky. Can be expensive and has a fee to enter. Don't forget your formal wear, this is not a bus terminal casino!

Unfortunately the Spielbank was closed for a private party when we were their but it looked great from the outside. Men you will need a jacket to enter when you visit. We did make it to the small bar on the side that was open for a quick drink. No jacket necessary.

We visited the Casino just to see what it was all about. Make sure you bring your passport with you so that you can enter. You do not have to gamble to visit, but you can dine here and marvel at the interior detailing of the walls, ceilings and doors.

Lovely building set in beautiful grounds, walk through the entrance and admire the ceiling then continue through to the gorgeous park at the rear, large lake with fountain and lovely park (and public toilets, if required! Fee payable)

This lovely piece of architecture houses a casino with a rich history, but probably best known as the place where Dostoyevsky gathered material for his novel "The Gambler". The park in front of it is often used for picnics and the fountain is especially impressive at night.

Imposing and elegant, just like the rest of Wiesbaden. Get your cameras ready as the views of the two fountains with the casino building at the back looks stunning, both day and night. During the Christmas season, part of the area is turned into a skating rink with Christmas huts.
