Well worth the trip on the Neroburg vehicular to find this cathedral nestling in amongst the trees. The approaching view is amazing as the sun gleams on the golden domes. Make sure you are wearing appropriate clothing - you will be given scaves and sarongs to cover up if you wish to go inside.

The church is down a steep hill at the top of the Neroberg Funicular. There is a small charge to get in and it is very small inside but worth the effort once you are there.

The Duke Adolf had this church made to place his wife's tomb in, after she died in childbirth. It's a beautiful place to see Wiesbaden from the top of the city. There is a small fee to get into the church. You need less than 5 min to see the inside.

Looks great at the little hill on Wiesbaden, its a Russian Church in Wiesbaden. We took a walk path to reach the church from the bus station at the bottom of the hill, we went through the residential streets to reach the church. The looks from outside is great, its a small church and a beautiful one. From the church,... More

This is a beautiful church with a nice view, but there is an entry fee and they do not allow photos.

The Russian Orthodox Church is amazingly beautiful and the views from the city are gorgeous too. We had a 'tour' of the church which is not very large but very beautiful.

A short but nice drive from the city centre of Wiesbaden to the top of Neroberg brought us to the Russian Orthodox Church of Saint Elizabeth. There was a storm coming up so the sky was full of dark clouds, which made the "golden" domes of the church shine even more! This was a very nice view, as was the... More

Beautiful but surprised that it requires an entry fee of €2 for adults/€1 for children. Take a moment to sit on the benches and enjoy the view of Wiesbaden!
