"The idea of the book is unusual. The giant who, according to legend, created Wiesbaden's warm springs, applies to be a local historian in response to an advertisement. Hired by the city government, he sets out to impart his knowledge to the city's children."
With 170 pages of texts, drawings, photos, city maps, aerial photographs, puzzles and exploratory tasks, the book provides a wealth of ideas for getting to know Wiesbaden in a completely new, entertaining, educational and emotional way and for discovering it with all the senses.
In the fourth edition, the development of the city is continued. For example, the new Rhein-Main CongressCenter as well as the Reinhard Ernst Museum of Abstract Art, which is currently under construction, and the memorial at Michelsberg.
The book with the giant Ekko as a city guide is already known to a broad public and attracts attention and is used in various cultural activities and municipal institutions. It is aimed at old and new citizens, big and small local historians, visitors from the twin towns and twinning associations, the American community, as well as domestic and foreign guests. It is suitable for people in schools, museums, homes for the elderly and senior citizens, hospitals and clubs.
There are also abridged book editions in English, French and Arabic. These inform in an entertaining way the international orientation of the city.
