Simple review. Don't visit on a Saturday. It's an all day wedding venue. But really worth the walk up the hill, if you can't get on the train. Amazing hill top views, memorials, the Russian Orthodox Church, and the weird ancient spiral auditorium.

The water powered funicular train is best appreciated from the top platform, where you can watch as it docks onto the water supply and adds enough weight to the train to pull the partner train up by pulleys & gravity.

A very unique way of getting to the best Wiesbaden vistas. Do as Kaiser Wilhelm II did. 3,50€ and you can glide to a restaurant on Neroberg. Founded in 1888 its still an atraction. Or visit the famous Opelbad. Public swimming pool. Very popular. Find the best view on the city. Even Monopteros (little temple) will guarantee the best view on Wiesbaden. Enjoy!

This is a really short trip and it offers some good views of the city. The history of the funicular is fascinating and the fact that it is powered only by water is quite remarkable. I took it both ways but if i had had more time, it would have been good to walk down as there seemed to be a pleasant forest pathway. A city bus stops right at the base of the funicular so it is easy to reach with public transport

Been visiting this place since childhood and is still in great condition. I like riding to the top and go to the Catholic Orthodox Church and then get refreshments back at the top. Great views of the city and historical sites.

This is definitely worth a visit. The funicular is in excellent condition and the journey to the top of Neroberg provides beautiful views of the city and a sense of the Victoria mode of transport. The service is efficient and runs regularly. People were traveling with their dogs on the funicular but bicycles are not permitted and have to be ridden either up the road or the pathway from Neroberg Park.
