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 years ago.
We walked around at the top, enjoying the view and the Russian church before strolling back down. It made for a fun outing on a beautiful morning.

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 the locals. The food was good and the service was friendly and able to accommodate my lack of German language abilities. Definitely plan on learning the lingo.

Great location to bring kids as many were running around and trails were abundant to do a little exploring. Seems like a romantic spot for those interested. Definitely worth a visit if your in the area. Check times for rides as the start times vary.

Enjoy!!!

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 on the estimated weight of the passengers. If the bottom car is empty and the top car is full of people it does not take any water at all. Amazing that the original two cars are still in use since 1888.

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 hillside where there's a nice view over the town, then visit the Russian Church, or have some refreshment at the cafe at the top. Then take an easy walk down or return the via the Funicular.
It's an smooth lovely journey through the woodland with the occasional sight of the walking path the winds its way nearby. If you intend to take the path make sure you wear proper walking shoes as the path needs good foot traction to get up or down.
On the day we visited we arrived at the terminus at the top and saw the funicular coming up the hill. Then it stopped. We were puzzled as to why the car stopped part way up the hill. It sat there for what seemed like ages then started up again. When it reached the top the driver opened the doors and a wedding party cheerfully got out. It seemed hat not only will the funicular take you up and down the mountain it also doubles as a wedding venue.
