Goldgasse

The Goldgasse ("gasse" means alley) is in the old part of the pedestrian area - a very nice area to do window shopping and have a coffee. This building is actually seperated into two houses as you can see from the exterior painting.

Interesting corner separation of buildings. Perhaps it was just one in the past.

Strange... I hope they don't quarreled about the colors... ;-)
Not many people in the street.

Nice! I don't think I've ever seen a building 'cut' into two from painting. Was it the owners' request?

i like the split colours but it would take a bit of getting used to. also the mosiac pavement is pretty too. but, nicola, where are the taxis??

bob - yes, I think that's how it was. And nowadays they still have the roof together.

sidney - not as far as I know. I wonder why they chose different colors though. Would have been easier to just have the same. But I guess that's a statement of some kind as well... The street is nearly empty because this photo was taken before the stores officially open. Plus this is a side street from the main shopping area and it's been a nasty day with drizzle all the time...

maya - there's another street like that here in Wiesbaden. I'll show another time!

dutchie - you say it! The drizzle makes me crazy, you don't know if it's worth opening an umbrella for it...

Wisconsin pics - no, we did not leave Germany at all. Funny that you compare it to England - to me it looks a bit more Southern European (but maybe I've been to the wrong places). Right next door is "Little Italy" by the way... (will also be featured here one day - probably more in summer, it's livelier then)

the saint - looks like you're the first Wiesbadener commenting here - welcome to Wiesbaden DP :)! Since you mention that you live pretty close by, does that mean you live around the Bergkirchenviertel?

luminlight & cynthia - good question but unfortunately, I don't know. It looks like it. Maybe it's as Canthia said - two families as competitors. At least they agreed on the roof! ;)

grant - smile!! no taxis here since this is a pedestrian area. Our taxis are not even half as interesting as yours!!

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I live at the Kranzplatz, between the hotel "Schwarzer Bock" and the Ibis hotel.

But I`m also just an Wiesbaden alien, moved here two years ago. Lovely city indeed.

I have never seen a building like that, I think it looks nice :)
This must be an excellent strolling area:)

Nice photo Nicola!

the saint - very nice area! I used to live in the Bergkirchenviertel (Adlerstrasse) for two years... Looking forward to the Kranzplatzfest again (should be in May, right?)!!

dia - yes, it's a nice area to stroll! Especially when the weather is nicer ;).

Thanks Wolf!
