Great view over Wiesbaden - a most for Wiesbaden

A wonderful thing to do even for Wiesbadeners...arrived at the top you will enjoy a great view over Wiesbaden. In Summer go to the nearby swimming pool...

Our travel group used this tram to return to the Wiesbaden city from the Neroberg. (We had taken a mini-tour bus up to the Neroberg). The "downhill ride" was short, but it was convenient, economical, and without any delays. The tickets can be purchased in advance at most tourest offices in the area.

Great morning or afternoon activity! Make sure take the short ride in the funicular and observe how the tram is powered by tons of water! Bring food and a bottle of Riesling (best in the world in this area and cheap!) just in case you won't like the mediocre food in the restaurant at the top of the mountain. Enjoy... More

Rhine River Tours will bring you uphill with an adventure ride that is here for ages. The secret, you will learn more about on our day trip, is water pushing that tram up that hill.

There is a walking trail that goes through Downtown Wiesbaden, up over the hill, and back through the park. It is great fun, and if you want to take it a bit easier, you can use this marvel to save a lot of climbing. The price is well worth the trip.

I really enjoyed being able to do something different whilst visiting my friend in Germany. The train ride works on a pulley system so as one goes down, the other goes up - very cute. At the top there are some lovely walks and there are beautiful buildings to explore - it all even seemed pretty on a rainy day.... More

Amazing that it is powered only by water. Watch when the tram reaches the top and unloads tons of water. Views and sights to visit at the top are beautiful. If you want to swim with a fantastic view, bring a swimsuit and towel and go in the Opelbad (swimming and sauna). Bring food and drink in case you don't... More

It is not hiking, but just on the outskirt of Wiesbaden there's a little nice bit of walking and the funicular has a nice atmosphere. Typically something for a calm sunday :-)

The funicular is powered by water, I'll leave it up to you to figure out. The carriage will remind you of the cable cars of San Francisco, and kids will enjoy riding on the open platform at one end, and if they are really lucky, they may ride up front with the conductor. Once at the top, there are several... More
