The "Lutherkirche" (Lutheran Church) was built from 1908-1910 according to the plans by church architect Friedrich Pützer and inaugurated in 1911. The basis for Pützer's plans was the "Wiesbadener Programm" (Wiesbaden program) - a Protestant church building program of the late 19th century. The Lutheran Church is a jewel of art nouveau, a monument of national importance, a theology of German Cultural Protestantism cast in stone. Perfectly simple in its outward appearance, the interior presents itself with extraordinary ornamentation in which well-known artists of the "Darmstädter Mathildenhöhe" (Darmstadt Artists Colony) were involved.
The museum is known for its international contemporary art. The art collection and the exhibit focusing on the "Roman Era and the Early Middle Ages" have been extensively renovated.
The paintings of Russian artist Alexej von Jawlensky, who lived in Wiesbaden from 1921 until his death in 1941, continue to attract international attention. Another highlight is the works from collections by Hanna Bekker vom Rath. At regular intervals, special exhibitions with works of contemporary art are organized.
With its 129 meters, the "Kurhauskolonnaden" (Kurhaus Colonnade) is the longest hall in Europe supported by pillars. It was erected in 1827 and replaced the vendors' booths and stalls that had previously stood there.
Today, this is where people gamble for small stakes, in the casino's slot area. Various events and exhibitions are also held here.
