thsi si a nice way to get up the "mountain " and walk in teh woods, see the scenic famous Opelbad, outdoor swimmingpool and restaurant and also an active climbing activity offered. We were with two kids, they charged us the family price, though we did not all go up, so that was overcharged, but we survived that

Make sure to go when in Wiesbaden. It's a classic ride on a water powered cable car. The one coming down pulling up the other. Good views over the city from the top.

Always a pleasant outing with the funicular to the top, see the Russian Orthodox Chapel, wander in the woods. There is a lovely (but pricey) swimming pool that overlooks the city, as well as a treetop climbing adventure for the whole family. Plenty of room for kids to run around, and a small , cool playground. Beer, wine and food... More

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.
