This is a beautiful building, you can see it from miles away, with the sun shining on the gold domes. Beautiful views over the town from here. You have to pay to go in 2euros per adult, it's tiny inside with some beautiful paintings, worth seeing if you appreciate that kind of thing. The Grand Duchess Elizabeth, niece of Tsar... More

There are clothing regulations to go inside to check that out before heading in the door. No photography allowed inside. Breathtaking scenery around the church too.

It is a nice church, but despite being free for years you now have to pay 2 Euros (1 euro child) to gain entry. And to be honest, it is not worthwhile.

We got there by car and there, we found a very beautiful architecture of the church and a wonderful view to the city. It is a calm and inspiring place. In 5 minutes walk there is a very interesting rope town.

The gold cupulas of the Russische Kirche glisten and gleam through the trees in the sunlight as you approach. This church is beautiful outside and inside. I visited it many times when I lived near it thirty-five years ago and found it equally moving and awe inspiring on a return visit last week. The views over Wiesbaden are beautiful too.... More

I live in Wiesbaden and heard this was one of the must-sees. It's great for kids. There are a lot of trails that they can run around on and have fun. The church sits on a hill that has a captivating view of Wiesbaden. It is truly beautiful.

Probably all Russian churches outside Russia, should be unique. But this one represents an unusual sample. First, it was built in memory of the sudden death of the Princess from Russian Imperial house, the wife of the local Duke. They had been married for only a year, and the Princess did not survive the pregnancy. She was only 19 years... More

We came here on the suggestion of our driver. There is a view from the Neroberg Hill, which frankly did not impress me on a winter day and the sky was not that clear. The church itself has an impressive facade. The benches outside provide a location for our group photo, with the church as background. They charge EUR2 for... More

The most beautiful thing in this Church is that we didn't really know about it while visiting the Neroberg Hill on Wiesbaden ..This historical chef d'oeuvre was in fact hidden between the big Geen tree. It's by walking near the top of the hill that we suddenly discovered it with a great facade. The church has three domes with splendid... More
