Up on the hill overlooking Wiesbaden and the Rhine valley this orthodox church is a marvel in gold and beautiful paintings, center of the Russian communitry since centuries, since the Russian Csar came here for spa treatments with his entourage. Religous services and otherwise worth seeing

This is one of the top ten Old churches to visit in Germany. We really enjoyed the Germany coupe that took us around and explained the history. You could really spend a few hours viewing the amazing details. This is a great afternoon spot after a nice meal on the city plaza. It was raining so too spend a few... More

The view around the curch and the way to the curch is really nice. There is a 5 minute walk from the viewpoint to the curch. It's worth the visit.

The church itself is nice though nothing very special except for the fact that it is an orthodox church. But it is up above the city and in clear weather you can see Wiesbaden and the area from that lookout.

The outside of the church is very nice, especially the gilded domes on top, you can see it from miles away. The real beauty of the church is inside, the frescoes and hangings are just amazing. Nice park nearby and if you are already on the Neroberg, it is well worth your while to hike down to see the church... More

Fabulous church. There is a small entry fee. Go on a sunny day, taking the Nerobergbahn up, if it's the right time of year.

I was a little put out by the entry fee and the sign saying no photographs - being British I'm very much used to religious buildings being as much about tourism as about religion. However, the inside was even more gorgeous as the outside. I've never seen a church so well kept and ornate before. Well worth the visit.

If I'm just reviewing the church (it seems the hill and train have separate reviews), it was impressive. Partly because the church itself is an easily identifiable landmark throughout Wiesbaden, so it's good to see it up close. It's a €2 "donation" to go inside, which is worth the price. No, it's not too spectacular, and it's quite small actually,... More

Even if not necessarily much interested in churches, this one is worth seeing not just because of its spectacular location but also since it takes you back in time. Excellently kept up and maintained it is sitting their on top of the Neroberg and can actually be seen from many places in the city just sitting up there and withstanding... More

The nice view over the City and nice walk in the wood as well. the Church is a must to visit and to read the story is highly recommended before you visit the Church
