The funicular is smooth and very safe though it's quite nice to see how old it is. Parking is easily available and the experience was intellectually interesting and enriching for our two kids. Landscape while going up is GEORGOUS..Once we arrived up to the Hill, we got surprized to have a wide green place with a white cite Dome...and an... More

On the mount Neroberg, in addition to its main attractions i.e. the Russian Church, there are still a few others. And the main one is the funicular, which you can use to climb the mountain and/or descend. Better to do both, because in that case one way ticket will cost cheaper. The funicular is very rare and peculiar. It is... More

For something different in Wiesbaden, take the old Funicular car up to the top of Neroberg for beautiful views of Wiesbaden. Only a 20 min walk or 5 min drive to the lower station. Ample parking is available. At the top you will find a restaurant, small amphitheatre and the "Kletterwald" climbing park. There is plenty of space for kids... More

Was here on business but when I had some spare time myself and a couple of colleagues went for a wander and found the Neroburgbahn. The uphill trip was very short but led to some lovely views at the top. The Russian Orthodox Church is a short walk away but well worth it for the amazing pictures you can get.... More

I love these old funicular railways and this one has been beautifully restored. Walk from the town through the lovely park to the valley station of the funicular.

This Funicular is worth riding with. The water ballast system is really interesting and the view from the Neroberg over the city and the nearby beautiful Russian Orthodox church make it one of the must stops in Wiesbaden. It is just a short walk from the old town along beautiful Taunusstreet and the Nerotal public garden. Or bus number 1.

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... More

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... More
