Riding this was such a treat and educational too. Super place to spend a day enjoying the beautiful view at the top. I recommend taking public transportation to get to the station, and then enjoying your time there. A great piece of history.

Tis funicular whisks you up Neroberg, and during the ride you can enjoy nice views of Wiesbaden. It is a step removed from the ho-humdrum experience of driving up the hill by car, and it is a historic piece of Wiesbaden.

The only water powered cliff railway left in Germany, it's only €6 for the round trip and is lots of fun as well.

The ride was rather short, but with a good view to Wiesbaden and the Nero valley. The funicular is very interesting for all, who loves technique.

Opened in 1888, the Neroberg Mountain Railway, one of the few funiculars with water propulsion and a true engineering accomplishment, gave us a wonderful experience. Though the ride was of about 4 minutes, the ingenious technique still enthuses the passengers today, as it had done...More
