We took the railway down from the top and really enjoyed the journey. The water balance engineering was very interesting. Lovely sights from the top of the Neroberg. Well worth a visit when in Wiesbaden.

Nice train, best for the amazing stuff at the top. Lovely little restaurant (Der Turm) and an amazing swimming venue.

Whilst not a huge attraction in its own right, the Nerobergbahn is an unusual and interesting way of reaching the top of the Neroberg and the other attractions there. The technology employed in its operation is simple and time proven - two carriages connected by a steel rope which in conjunction with a considerable amount of water ballast enables the... More

Was visiting friends in Wiesbaden on way to south of France. We did this the first afternoon that I arrived. Took the train up the hill with a great view of the city below. Visited the beautiful Russian Church and had a pizza at the restaurant at the top. Perfect first day

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.

When you reach the top of the hill, you can hike to a magnificent Russian church which has an exquisite interior, well worth seeing despite the return uphill hike. The short but enjoyable finnicular ride was fun but the church was the highlight with its golden domes beckoning a visit to its site.
