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.

Recently rode the Nerobergbahn Funicular, located in Wiesbaden, Germany. There is a fee to take the 2 minute and 45 second ride. Once at the top, there are various things to see, not to mention a great view of Wiesbaden and a spectacular Russian Orthodox church. There is a playground for small children and several benches for those that just... More

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.

The Nerobergbahn Funicular is unique is that it is water powered.After taking the Thermine "railway" to nearly the top of the Neroberg (Nero Mountain).We had a picnic lunch at the top and visited the very impressive Russian church.Then we descended by the funicular.There is a wonderful view of the spa city of Wiesbaden from the funicular.

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
