Wiesbaden – Russian Church & Funicular Railway

We went to Wiesbaden yesterday for a day trip. Wiesbaden is less than an hour away from Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof and we really just wanted to explore a different place. One of the places we visited was the Russian Church which is located at Neroberg. From Wiesbaden Hauptbahnhof you can take Bus No. 1 and alight at the last stop (Nerotal). What’s interesting is that you can take the funicular railway from Nerotal up to Neroberg. It costs 3.30 Euro for a return journey.

I really wanted to see the Russian Church (well, I’ve never seen one before) as pictures of it online looked amazing. So, here are some of the shots I took.

Although I’ve had my camera for more than 2 years, it was only yesterday that I found out about the ‘Colour In’ mode.

We don’t go everywhere with a tripod, so we’re ever so grateful to people who help take a picture of us!

There really wasn’t much to do up at Neroberg but it was nonetheless a good place to hang out. We got ourselves some drinks at the cafe and just chilled out. I guess you could say that we wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life in Frankfurt (ahem, as if I’m really caught up with it all!). It was definitely good being surrounded by nature (although it was really chilly yesterday and we weren’t prepared for it).

Last but not least, I’m just really happy that we finally have spare time during the weekends to explore places together (given that we’ve almost got everything we need for the apartment!).

    This reminds me of how I and wife did the exact same day tour of the funicular/russian church, from Frankfurt last summer ! I had a Monthly pass from Frankurt-Darmstadt also covering Mainz/Wiesbaden so 1 day off we went exploring, using RMV. Must say, apart from the church what I found impressive about Wiesbaden was the localities.. quaint and posh regal residential buildings, must be a uber-cool place to live in !
