Neroberg Mountain Railway

In 2018 the season of the "Nerobergbahn", one of the city's most popular leisure-time destinations, is starting on 24 March.

A Very Special Experience

Located within the city's precincts, Neroberg, Wiesbaden's own hillside estate, is one of the city's most popular leisure-time destinations. The 245 metre high hill offers many rest and recreational options for example a visit to the Russian Church, a walk on the Neroberg Nature Trail and of course an excellent view of the city of Wiesbaden.

A ride up the hill with the Neroberg Mountain Train is like a journey into the past. Since the year 1888 the carriages have moved up and down the Neroberg Mountain with 7.3 kilometers per hour. It takes 3.5 minutes to reach the station on top of the 245 metres high Wiesbaden hillside estate. The ingenious technique still enthuses the passengers today, as it had done in the former times. The down hill carriage is filled with up to 7,000 litres of water and pulls the second carriage uphill by means of a 452 m long steel cable during its downward descent. When the downhill carriage arrives at the bottom, the water is let off and pumped uphill once again. The speed is regulated by the downhill driver. The railway is secured by pinions under the carriage that latch into a toothed rack fastened to the rails.

The official birthday party takes place on 26 August 2018 from 12 noon to 6 pm with the Neroberg festival on top of the mountain.

It operates from 24 March until 30 October and transports its passengers up and down every 15 minutes.
