This is a cool old train, taking you up to a gorgeous view of Wiesbaden, a nice restaurant, pool, and the Russian (Greek) chapel, which is definitely worth the visit. I always take my company. Too bad it's not open year round.

The Funicular is a great way to get up to Neroberg and see the Russian church and enjoy the walking trails that are up above Wiesbaden. There are miles and miles of trails, a \n outdoor amplitheater with a nice place to sit at an outdoor cafe and get some good food and drinks. There is also a rope, climbing,... More

Quaint little ride up to the top that runs about every 15 minutes, only costs about 3 Euros for a return trip. The view from the top is good, the war memorial is quite moving, and the Russian church adds a bit of unexpected bling.

I wish they had a bit more information on how it works, I think we figured it out. It was a nice old funicular with lovely views of the mansions of Wiesbaden and a park at the top with a war memorial. The cafe served typical German fare and was good value.

This is an ancient item of funicular and a must if you are a tourist. I used to live in Wiesbaden for decades and still did it back then as they all do in the holidays. Now I have even more fun as a tourist

My cousin, who lives in Wiesbaden, took us on this short train ride up the Neroberg. It's very interesting as the train uses the weight of water to power it . At the top, you have an excellent view, and can also enjoy other attractions such as the Klettern Wald (climbing forest) and Opel Bad swimming pool.

Wiesbaden is a fascinating town to walk through as it is one of the few cities in Germany to have been largely spared by Allied bombing during World War II. One of its really fascinating attractions is a hill to the east of the city called the Neroberg. The Neroberg is a large public park with lovely forest walks and... More
