Beautifull church on a hill to be seen from most places in Wiesbaden, with its golden roofs. Unfortunatelty you can only visist it if you're Russian, which is a pitty, since it is in Germany, and worth the visit.

For over 30 years, in two different tours in Wiesbaden, I've admired the 'Church of the Golden Domes'. Surrounded by a wooded park, and near the city's outdoor swimming pool, the church is as magnificent to visit up close as it is to admire from miles away.

The ornate interior of this church is spectacular. The silence and the lighting add to the overall beauty of this interior. The way the tomb is presented under the clear dome above is just breath taking.

Bottom line, admire it from afar...don't pay to go inside. Here's why. I've lived in Wiesbaden for almost 3 years and walked by this church several times without going in. I had heard that this church is really beautiful on the inside and worth a visit so I finally decided to check it out and just wasn't impressed. Call me... More

Ok, I might put it into a nice-to-visit list, but it's not that big of an attraction in the local area. Plan a three-hour trip to Neroberg itself. Take the tram up. Walk around the area on top of the hill. There are a couple of memorials on Neroberg, and then walk down 300 ft to the kirche. The trail... More

Gorgeous gold-topped Russian church located in the Neroberg area. If you take the little Thermine train, this is a stop on the route. You can go in the church for one Euro, but it's only open certain hours. The view of the city of Wiesbaden from here is amazing!

This is set in woods on the Neroberg above Weisbaden. It is lovely to see but has an entrance charge to see inside. It has lots of benches on which to take a breather before going back up the hill to the funicular.

This church is beautiful. There is an old graveyard here also. This church is not in downtown Wiesbaden, be prepared to take a train or drive. It's totally worth a visit!!!

The church is absolutely stunning, with its golden spires. It overlooks the city of Wiesbaden and would be a beautiful place to watch fireworks. The drive is a little steep and wind-y, but it's definitely worth going to.
