Delightful!

Love this little "Nerobergbahn". A great way to see Wiesbaden as you slowly travel up and down the mountain.

I walked to the funicular and rode up to the top. It was fun - and a great view of Wiesbaden. Once at the top there are 2 restaurants (go to the one over the pool), a gorgeous view of the city, a beautiful Russian Orthodox Church (St Elizabeth's), and a public pool (8.20 euro to enter - but lord...

A train powered by water. You can hear and see the water cooling the breaks once it reaches to bottom station. Don't know how it works but it was a nice ride and a good tool to move between downtown and the attractions at the top of the hill.

This Funicular doesn't take that long but it is a neat thing to do. You get an amazing view of Wiesbaden and a small vineyard on the way up. On the way up you pass the train that is pulling your train up as they go down. It's a water powered gravity system. At the bottom you can see all... More

Surprisingly nice tram ride up the hill. Would recommend to stand on either side of tram rather than sitting, to get better view of surroundings

Fun trip up the hill to a place where there are good views of Wiesbaden and a great restaurant. One way is 2.5 Euro. Round trip is 1.5 Euro more, but the ticket must be bought at the same time. We bought a one way ticket, didn't know it was less if you buy it all at the same time.... More

A must do while in Wiesbaden. The tram is a fun experience and the views from the top of the hill are great. Easy walk to the Orthodox Church.

It was a lot of fun to ride on this historic piece of transportation. The trip up and down is very short, but worth the experience. The price is cheap and it is a lot better than walking up to the top.
