Old and new
At once the city’s oldest suburb and its newest neighbourhood, Klarenthal is a modern residential area surrounded by greenery. Founded in the 1960s, it is one of the city’s modern residential areas. Its name, however, originates from Klarenthal Abbey, the first written reference of which can be traced back to the 13th century.
Situated on the slopes of the Taunus, Klarenthal offers wonderful views across the centre of Wiesbaden. Those who call Klarenthal home describe their neighbourhood as Wiesbaden’s “Green Gateway” – and appreciate the relaxed lifestyle it affords, somewhere between nature and the city.
Halfway between nature and the city
As a residential area surrounded by greenery, populated with high rise buildings and terraced houses, Klarenthal combines attractive natural surroundings with the needs of urban life.
