We'd been told this was a must-see, and we're glad we checked it out. We took the funicular up--very short ride but fun way to get up the hill. As soon as you arrive, you see a gazebo that overlooks the city. I see this gazebo in pics of Wiesbaden all the time. My favorite was the Russian church--absolutely gorgeous! We couldn't go in b/c a service was in session, but we heard the choir from outside and were mesmerized. I want to go back and sit in on a service and take it all in. The hike back from the church was uphill entirely, so if you have trouble with hikes, allow yourself some time--it's not very long but will get your heart pumping. There are inviting trails everywhere you look, a cafe up top that's mentioned in a lot of the reviews, and a very good restaurant with fantastic views (Wagner im Opelbad) near the Russian church. We also want to go back and do the Kletterwald ropes course as a family. This is a beautiful place to take in nature and Wiesbaden at the same time!

Wiesbaden is not very big, at least the areas around the centre. The Nerotal and the Neroberg are worth a visit, whatever the season, although it is prettier in Summer when the vines on the Weinberg bloom. I've been there in all seasons myself. The Neroberg area is nice for walking, sightseeing and more sporty activities such as jogging. Take a look at the orthodox Russian church in the forest and go up past the open air swimming pool, the Opel Bad. People say this pool has the best view of all open air pools in Germany. Walk down from the monument towards the war memorial at the front. There is a lovely view there over the Weinberg and Nerotal area.

You might even see red squirrels in this area, but you have more chance of that in the Nerotal park early in the morning.

Take care on some of the slopes upwards becuase they are very steep.

If you are not fit, you can take a train up from the Nerotal park area (Bus number 1 from the centre or the station area) and you will find the Neroberg Bahn opposite the bus stop.

Very sporty people might like to check out the Kletterwald (climbing forest) adventure park where you can climb through the trees like Tarzan.

Great place to look down over Wiesbaden with a beer in the restaurant up there

My husband and I stayed in Mainz 2 nights recently and visited Wiesbaden for about half a day. It was very easy as a very helpful waiter at the Mainz Hilton Hotel told us about the bus number 6 and 6A outside the hotel which took us over the bridge across the Rhein River and we are there. I had previously thought the only way there was by train from Mainz. Journey about 25 mins.
We visited the old part of town, walked around and finally found out where to take bus No 1 with Nerotal as the terminus which is where the Neroberg is. We took the funicular up to the top and it was a really peaceful area where you can walk in the woods and also have a beer or coffee at the cafe which we did. Fortunately it was very quiet ( some other travelers whom we met and recommended this place, visited when it was pouring and the cafe was packed and was horrible with no where to sit or eat). I would recommend this place to spend a little time just relishing the peace and beautiful views of Wiesbaden .

The hiking trails up are a nice option if you want to skip the trolly ride. The hike up takes about 15 minutes but is a nice walk through the woods. The top of the hill offers beautiful city views. There is a cafe but the service is very slow. Plan extra time if you want to sit and have a beverage. You can also see the Russian Orthodox Church which is beautiful and then you can even walk down from there to get back to the city center. This can be a nice, free thing to do while visiting.
