A fun ride.

I love these old funicular railways and this one has been beautifully restored. Walk from the town through the lovely park to the valley station of the funicular.

This Funicular is worth riding with. The water ballast system is really interesting and the view from the Neroberg over the city and the nearby beautiful Russian Orthodox church make it one of the must stops in Wiesbaden. It is just a short walk from the old town along beautiful Taunusstreet and the Nerotal public garden. Or bus number 1.

Taking this water-powered train up the Neroberg is a must-have adventure for everyone visiting Wiesbaden. Kids, especially, will enjoy the trip, but adults will like it as well. The views at the top are outstanding.

We perused the little, very informative museum at the base of the funicular before heading over to buy our one-way tickets for a pretty exorbitant 2.60 Euro each. It was worth it to enjoy the feeling of traveling back in time as the old, water-powered tram glided up the hill. I doubt the experience was much different for visitors 120... More

This was definitely one of the best ways I felt to introduce myself to the area. Having recently moved to this location I found this to be an awesome experience. The scenery on the way up was beautiful and the views from the top were breathtaking. I took advantage of the restaurant at the top and enjoy people watching with... More

We rode the Neroburgbahn round-trip. Both times we let the first train go without us so we were the first to board the next car out. We were able to stand outside with the driver both times. It is amazing how the water ballast system works. The driver told us they only put in the amount of water needed based... More

Most visitors to Wiesbaden don't realise how hilly it is. If you want to do a scenic tour of the town without taking the Thermine train you can walk up to the Neroberg or take a No. 1 bus up Tanuss Str to the end of the line then connect with the Nerobergbahn funicular will take you up the seep...

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.

What a great ride it takes you up and brings you down all in silence this is a great ride and a great piece of history, the ride is not long but a good view up and down the track I would rather ride up the hill than walk it and when you get to the summit the view is... More
