Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wiesbaden Ost station is situated on the Frankfurt-Wiesbaden line in the German state of Hesse. It was opened as part of the Taunus Railway, which was opened in 1839/40. The station was opened as part of the last stage of construction of the line to Wiesbaden and was opened on 19 May 1840. Originally, the station was called Biebrich Curve and it was later renamed Biebrich Ost. With the incorporation of Biebrich into Wiesbaden, the "Ost" was retained in the name of the station, but "Biebrich" was replaced by "Wiesbaden," leading to the current name of the station, although it is in the south of Wiesbaden. On 3 August 1840, a 1.5 kilometre spur line was opened that branched off from here to the Biebrich Rhine station in Biebrich to connect the Taunus Railway with the free port on the Rhine.show more
