Welcome to Domäne Mechtildshausen

About Us

The Wiesbadener Jugendwerkstatt GmbH (WJW) is a nonprofit corporation of the municipality of Wiesbaden. Its core objective is the (re-)integration of unemployed adolescent and adult people into the labor market.

The head office with management and administration is located at Hasengartenstrasse 12 in Wiesbaden, where we also have most of our workshops for the skilled crafts and trades, such as carpentry, metalwork, electrical engineering or painting.

Domäne Mechtildshausen near Wiesbaden-Erbenheim houses our agricultural, food-processing and gastronomic branches.


At the tavern “Die Gans” we offer home-style meals in the ambience of the refurbished historic mews of the Domäne estate. Just across the courtyard you can enjoy the exquisite cuisine of our restaurant, housing up to 50 guests. Our chefs are looking forward to present you with their high-class creations.

In our ABCERT-certified gastronomy we exclusively use products from organic farming, to large extent from our own agriculture and live-stock breeding. Due to the seasonal and regional nature of our supplies the published menu is to be regarded as a sample display.

Along with your favorite dishes you may choose from a wide variety of premium wines from notable German and French vineyards.

In case you’d consider enjoying the pastoral tranquility of the Domäne Mechtildshausen just outside the Wiesbaden city limits for a bit longer, you may spend the night at our guesthouse. We recommend checking for vacancies.
