Question about Nintendo Wii Console
Wii consoles are region-specific and different regions also use different television standards.
You have potentially three problems:
You can also look into a device called the Freeloader, but I'm not sure if it works with Wii games yet (the original allowed Gamecube consoles to play games from different regions)
If the power adapter does not list a voltage in the 100-something range on it, then you will need a step-up transformer - that will convert power from 120-volt to 220-volt or 240-volt. The transformer may or may not have the right type of power receptacle, so you may also need a plug adapter. Check your local electronics store for this. Tell them you have a device from Europe and want to run it on your local electrical power. They should know what you need. If you have a choice, get one that is designed for computer or laptop use, as the cheaper ones provide "dirty" power which is fine for hair dryers and such, but bad for electronics.
