The Hessian State Chancellery opposite Kochbrunnenplatz in Wiesbaden is the government headquarters of the State of Hesse , located in the former Grand Hotel Rose, and the official seat of the Hessian Prime Minister . The cabinet meetings of the state government also take place here.

The State Chancellery also houses the Minister for Federal and European Affairs , to which the Hessian State Representation in Berlin belongs.


The State Chancellery supports the Prime Minister in his administration. This gives the guidelines of politics, represents the country externally and exercises the right of grace . In the State Chancellery, the main features of the state government's policy are drawn up and the work between the ministries is coordinated. It is from here that the implementation of the resolutions of the state parliament and the drafting of laws and ordinances are controlled, and state treaties and administrative agreements are prepared. The government spokesman also works here. The head of the state chancellery is a cabinet member with ministerial rank, currently Axel Wintermeyer .

The State Chancellery also exercises state supervision over the Hessian State Authority for Private Broadcasting and New Media and Hessian Broadcasting .


Until 2004, the State Chancellery was spread over several buildings in Wiesbaden, which were directly adjacent to the Warmer Damm Park . Shortly after the turn of the millennium, the state acquired the former Hotel Rose on Kranzplatz in order to make it suitable for the State Chancellery. In summer 2004, a branch of the Hessian State Statistical Office and the State Center for Political Education moved in together with the State Chancellery , both of which are subordinate authorities to the State Chancellery.

A total of 325 employees work in the representative building from the early days .

Former Hotel Rose

The previous building of the Grand Hotel Rose stood on Kranzplatz and separated it from Kochbrunnenplatz. It was only demolished in early 1913. Approval for the new building, which reached as far as Taunusstrasse, was granted in 1896. The hotel had 200 lounges and bedrooms, and 55 bathrooms. The large bathing establishment had its own inflow from the cooking fountain . There was a large tennis hall in the courtyard .

From 1940 to 1944 it was the meeting place of the Franco-German Armistice Commission . The American occupation forces used the building from 1945 to 1948 .

In 1959, after an expensive renovation, it was operated as a hotel again, but with fewer beds. For this purpose, 75 apartments were rented out to permanent guests.

The building, which the real estate entrepreneur Jürgen Schneider acquired in the early 1990s to turn it into a luxury hotel again, stood empty for years after the Schneider affair in 1994 .
