Neroberg, Hesse, Germany


4.5 (409 reviews) Spent Ranking #3 in Wiesbaden Historic Walking Areas • Nature & Wildlife Areas

Top sight of the city and amazing Russian Orthodox church

I was in Frankfurt recently on a quick stopover and decided to checkout nearby Wiesbaden. It was easier to get to than I thought. (Just take a S1, S8, or S9 train from Frankfurt main train station - it takes less than an hour). I'm so glad I did. The Neroberg is a fantastic mountain with a view over the city, plus there's an amazing little Russian Orthodox Church at the top (complete with icons and a very old priest...). The story behind the chapel is sad - a bit like the Taj Mahal I saw it while on an English-speaking walking tour and our guide was great. I'd recommend the tour and this sight in particular, to anyone.

    A Historic Hill Offering Nature Hiking Trails, Mountain Train and Panoramic View of the Wiesbaden
    Located on the northern outskirts of the Wiesbaden, it’s a popular destination at 245-meter (800 ft) high mountain offering fantastic, popular hiking trails from the city center to the summit. It´s easy to reach on foot or, even better, on the Neroberg Mountain Railway. We were amazed to see the whole of Wiesbaden is spread out at our feet, together with the River Rhine. The Neroberg attracts a great deal of attention as a festival and showground. Every year, on the last Sunday in May, there is the “Nerobergfest” – an event offering a broad spectrum of sports and music. The hill offers many rest and recreational options, for example, Nerobergbahn funicular railway, Tower from the former hotel, Lion on the viewing platform, Monopteros, a visit to the Russian Orthodox Church of Saint Elizabeth, a walk on the Neroberg Nature Trail. The focal point is a monopteros designed by Philipp Hoffmann, from which one has a very good view of the city. The "Forest Adventure Path Neroberg", more than three kilometers long, also introduces nature lovers to the secrets of the forest and its inhabitants. The "Climbing Forest Neroberg", supervised by experienced experts, also offers the opportunity for physical activity from "tree to tree", called Zipline - a fun game 'robe gliding' from one tree to another.

    Views for miles
    Lovely place to spend a half hour or two or three. Situated on the top of a hill overlooking Wiesbaden one can get views for miles/kilometres of the city and beyond. 200 meters from the Russian Orthodox Church (worth a separate visit) and 50 metres away from the Nerobergbahn (small uphill railway/tram). Nearby forest walks are started from this site. Also nearby (not in winter) is a 'walk in the trees' where you can climb and walk in the treetops on ropes and bridges (good for the young people). Overall a good place to visit for scenery and forest walks.
