Well worth taking the funicular. Great views. Plan to spend at least an hour at the top to take in the views, atmosphere and sites. There's a café, garden temple, activity area (adults and nearby children's grounds), Russian church, WWI monument and outdoor swimming pool.

A fab experience, reasonably priced, and a better (and lazier) way to reach the top! Amazing to watch the two carriages overlap on ascent and descent.

We went up to Neroberg whith the waterdriven(!) funicular. Nice view from the top. Small Russian orthodox church worth a visit. Do walk the way back to Wiesbaden and you pass through a very nice neighbourhood, a 20-30 minute walk.

The funicular railway is very quaint and a nice way to reach the top of the Neroberg. Impressive but fairly short in distance, it is easier than walking up! The park at the bottom, bordering Taunusstrasse is very pretty.

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.

Worth doing, even on a showery day. Little train powered by the weight of water in the bottom - wait around to see it empty out at the bottom of the line.
