The Nerobergbahn is a marvel of historic engineering leading to the top of the Neroberg. Operating since the 1800s, the train is powered by gravity (yes really). At the top station are parks and a restaurant.

We liked this funicular as they didn't pack you in like sardines and the windows were lowered to bring in air. The ride up is quick, but it is the best way to get up to the church and very scenic as well.

The funicular is 'powered' by water! Unique technical solution to go uphill. on top you have a great view across Wiesbaden and the public pool 'Nerobergbad' is in walking distance. Have a swim overlooking the city.

Water is used to get the upper waggon down and pulling the lower waggon up. Unique Experience. You get a nice view over Wiesbaden and access to some nice places including the russian orthodox church with the golden roofs

The funicular is cool. It is fun to do once or when showing people around town. I believe it is one of two left in operation and young kids seem to love it. The views are nice. I prefer to walk up and then go...More
