The 245 meter/800 ft. high Neroberg (Nero's Mountain) is more of a hill than a mountain, however it provides a lovely escape from the city, especially in hot summer weather, when the humidity levels soar downtown. The woodland extends for miles beyond the Neroberg, offering walkers many all year options. Access to Neroberg need not be on foot or by... More

I have visited the amazing place several times, and have always left in awe. There is an incredibly beautiful park in Nerotal where you will find the Nerobergbahn fenicular railway to take you up to the Neroberg. It's a short ride of just a few minutes, and as you exit, you can walk around and look at the WWI memorial,... More

Although Nerobergbahn and the restaurant on the top of hill are closed in winter, it is still enjoyable visit and a nice walk uphill from the city. I liked the belvedere just below the top. It looked especially lovely in this season with a lot of snow around. It made be a bit sad that the monument to over 15... More

It is worth the hike, drive or ride in funicular to visit the Russian Chapel on Neroberg. One can take walks in the wooded area surrounding and the view of the city is beautiful.

If you are staying in the north of Wiesbaden walk up to the Neroberg, basically a hill overlooking Wiesbaden. Along the way you will see Imperial Villas and as you climb up you can visit the Russian Orthodox Church.

Visiting in December, so like a lot of things around here this time of year, funicular railway closed. So we walked up. It's not marked, but there is a path through the woods near the funicular station. Need to wear good show but worth it. Allow 3-4 hours if you want to continue on to forest walks beyond the Neroberg... More

While not a "berg" or mountain it is still a great place to get away from the business of the city and only few minutes away too. There is plenty of parking at the top (except on busy summer weekends). Easy, short or longer hikes are possible and well marked as well. Go there if you want to swim (Opelbad)... More

This mountain or rather a hill (altitude of 245 metres) has become flush with the main attractions of Wiesbaden. Of course, not rotunda on the top of the hill or the tower, which remained from the burned hotel, not the grape that local winemakers are growing here for their wines, attract tourists. And not even the hiking route with length... More

Rode the funicular up to the top to enjoy the beautiful views of the city and the Russian Orthodox church.Very nice spot for a walk,but be careful on the trail to the church. Although it is paved some sections are steep and my friend almost slipped down. She says the ropes course can be challenging but her teens have enjoyed... More
