  • On the occasion of my visit in Wiesbaden we went also on the Neroberg, to visit the Church. Very, very nice, but (as unfortunately some usual) here could not be filmed or photographed. What is me if I turn a beautiful video movie and then off to film me a postcard? I find these methods real to the ko... We were also disappointed that the cemetery was closed, because not every day visited a Russian Orthodox cemetery. Fatit: The building is the "management" really great, but well.

  • 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.
