Besides the beautiful view of Wiesbaden, this is a fun piece of history! I agree that one should ride up front/behind to view the mechanical workings of this unique funicular!

Within 10 mins of boarding this coach, you will reach Neroberg maybe. But during the ride you will have one of the best views of Wiesbaden from the top. Be sure to stand in the front with the driver. The open drive will bring more charm to the ride with clear view of the city. But ride the Funicular more... More

Definately something to enjoy in spring, autumn or a cool summer day. The funicular ride to the top is fun, the view on a clear day is really nice, and there is a cafe to relax in at the top. The Russian church is a short stroll away, as is the rope adventure park if you feel like a challenge.... More

If you're a train junkie, it's a must do. Even if not, a nice ride to the top, where there's a restaurant and a gorgeous view of Wiesbaden awaits.

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
