A church service in the upper rotunda was heard from the ground chamber below. The history of this church can be found inside in booklets for sale, and one can purchase nice... More

Like most orthodox churches it's very colourful and has impressive icons. The location and the view inside and outside are definitely worth a visit.

Long walk on a free afternoon ended up here. The view was incredible but even better was the stunning interior to the church. As a Brit I've never been into an Orthodox Church and I was amazed. Very glad I made the long walk!

When visiting WI you should add this to your stops. Scenic views of Wiesbaden from this hilltop. So much History here. Do not skip the Neroberg or the obstacle course up the hill.

Walk along a nice trail and pass a water park, eat wild berries on your way and then you see this beautiful church right in front of you! Pay 1 or 2 euros to go inside. Light a candle as my children did. We enjoyed it.
