After riding the funicular and hiking down from the park you will find a Russian Orthodox church. But word of caution....the hike back up is quite difficult.

This Funicular train is a slice of history. Back in the 50's the city wanted to electrify and enlarge the train, but thankfully, it never happened. The route is short, and a family could hike the hill if they wanted, but they'd miss out on a quiet, smooth ride up to an amphitheater, restaurant, and high ropes course. You can... More

This is a fun ride up and down the Neroberg. Visitors are always fascinated by the mechanics of the train. Take a ride up, marvel in the views of Wiesbaden from the top, have a drink or meal at the Turm Restaurant, or if you are really adventurous, you can play in the Kletterwald, the obstacle course amongst the trees.

It employs the physics to carry people by the equivalent weight of water. Though 126 years old, it shows how brilliant and genius as well as echo friendly they were. Get a return ticket, or better walk down the street after the Russian church, but going down a steep hill can be sometimes difficult.

Once at the top, there are various things to see, not to mention a great view of Wiesbaden and a spectacular Russian Orthodox church.

The hop on, hop off trolley ( little city train) takes you to this adventure. Board the funicular for a beautiful ride up to the summit or Neroberg and to the Russian Church. Gorgeous views of the city from the top plus a restaurant for a quick bite or mug of beer! FUN FOR KIDS!

This was an interesting funicular in that it is run by water power. It was a very short ride and it was through woodland so that you couldn't see any views. Once at the top though it was well worth the few euros fare.
