21:00 Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
Prod Year 2011 - A searing debut from youngster Thomas Horn as a small boy trying to make sense of the death of his father on 9/11 distinguishes this multi-layered drama from British director Stephen Daldry. Horn plays Oskar Schell, a youngster with just a hint of autism, who worships his indulgent father (Tom Hanks). When dad dies during the World Trader Center attack, Oskar sets off on a mission to discover what lock can be opened by a key he finds hidden in a vase in his father's closet. Poignant and touching, it is - most of all - a glowing celebration of the bonds between father and son. Sandra Bullock and an Oscar- nominated Max Von Sydow co-star.

THE NEROBERG MOUNTAIN RAILWAY
126 Years - 1888 - 2014
Wiesbaden at its most romantic
Enjoy a unique experience – a ride on the Neroberg Mountain Railway, a historic monument! It is the oldest water ballast-driven cog-and-rack railway in Germany.
Since the service opened in 1888, Germany’s Year of the Three Emperors, the two original wagons – bearing Wiesbaden’s brightly coloured blue and yellow livery – have been rumbling up and down the Neroberg, Wiesbaden’s landmark mountain. The ride along the viaduct to the upper station is like a journey back in time.
