  • Visited 1 times the Church 13.08.17. All the admiration of her splendour at one point spoiled saleswoman Church benches, which usurped the right to judge who can or cannot be included in the list for the health and for the repose. Personally crossed out the name of our son-in-law, saying he did not want to take the Sin upon himself. I hope that the name of the granddaughters left and we get paid. When this began to lecture us how careless kids. And when our pregnant daughter, who came for the 70 km in the Church, said in Darmstadt never anything like it on was the saleswoman replied: "then there and drive, I am not interested in what is going on in Darmstadt. We were just shocked. Apparently, for us with her husband it was the first and last visit. The mood was completely ruined.

  • The location is wonderful. The visit to the Church should not be missed when visiting the Neroberg. More from the outside.

  • A wonderfully produced oriented Church that is inside. The Church should be absolutely visited. Unfortunately, it is not always open.

  • Some of the previous reviewers seem to have met the same woman working there as we did. Outside is a sign that says € 2 DONATION for adult, € 1 for a child. My kids went in to take a look and when I wanted to get them this rude person at the desk yelled at me that I must pay € 2 to go inside. So practically they charge you to go, not just a voluntary donation as the sign indicates. I know some churches officially charge a fee which in my personal opinion is totally wrong. We always make a small donation after visiting a church, but as I said, it's a voluntary donation and my choice to do so. I'm assuming that "donations" are tax free, so this business practice most certainly helps their tax status. Also, this could've been done in a more polite way as that lady who yelled in a very rude manner. Not a one time incident if you read a couple of reviews. The building is beautiful, I'm only commenting on how it's run and how visitors are treated.
  • Lovely church with great views over the city and a nice park to walk around. Worth coming up for a look.
  • Beautiful church, well worth the visit.
  • Beautiful church and only 2€ to enter. It seems so out of place, but this church is visible from almost anywhere in Wiesbaden. The view from here is also amazing!
  • Unique place surrounded by compelling landscape of Wiesbaden. Good place for a sunday walk.
