Wehen Wiesbaden is a German association football club based in Wiesbaden, Hesse. Since the beginning of the 07–08 season the club no longer plays its homegames in Taunusstein, where they were originally located. In the summer of 2007 Wiesbaden has been added to the original name of SV Wehen.


The club was founded under the name of SV Wehen 1926 – Taunusstein in 1926 and disbanded by the Nazi government in 1933, although the football department was maintained by playing occasional friendly matches until 1939. The club re-established itself in 1946, following World War II. They operated both first and reserve teams from the beginning, with their first team competing in local amateur division, the B-Klasse Wiesbaden. The club's first youth team was established in 1955 and they subsequently started to use their own talented young players to strengthen the first team. By the mid-1970s, the youth department was split in ten teams with more than 150 players and a women's team was first established in 1984.

The club won the Hessenpokal in 1988, 1996 and 2000, which gave them berths in the German Cup in those years. In the 2000–01 season, the club gave two good performances in the German Cup, eliminating at the time Second Bundesliga side Stuttgarter Kickers with a 2–1 victory in the first round and narrowly losing 1–0 to Bundesliga giant Borussia Dortmund in extra time of their second-round match.

The club competed between fourth and sixth divisions of German football for a few decades before eventually being promoted to the third division in the late 1980s. They were relegated back to the fourth division in 1995, but returned to the third-division Regionalliga Süd in 1997. The club managed to establish itself in the third division and in the 2000s, they further established themselves as one of the top teams in the Regionalliga Süd and narrowly missed promotion to the Second Bundesliga with third-place finishes in both 2005 and 2006 before finally achieving promotion to the Second Bundesliga in 2007 after finishing first in Regionalliga Süd.

The club lasted for two seasons in Germany's second division before being relegated again, now to the new 3. Liga, where two fourth-place finishes, in 2011 and 2014, were the clubs best results.
