This funicular train was an engineering marvel at the time it was built. It uses water to propel two small trains up and down the mountain on a 3 minute journey. At the top is the Russian church with its beautiful gold-gilded onion domes, a...More

The ride was rather short, but with a good view to Wiesbaden and the Nero valley. The funicular is very interesting for all, who loves technique.

I love this little funicular rail car ride. You go to the beautiful park in the Nerotal, and near the very end of the park you will find the station that houses the cars that traverse to and from the top of the Neroberg. The...More

Opened in 1888, the Neroberg Mountain Railway, one of the few funiculars with water propulsion and a true engineering accomplishment, gave us a wonderful experience. Though the ride was of about 4 minutes, the ingenious technique still enthuses the passengers today, as it had done...More

This was a great experience. The views are fabulous. Kids would love it. You won’t believe how high you are rising unless you turn around and look back. Much easier on the feet than hiking up. Not cheap, but worth it.

A trip up on a water driven cog train to a wonderful view of Wiesbaden. There are a few walks to do from the top and the Greek Orthodox Church was worth the effort.
