I live in Wiesbaden and heard this was one of the must-sees. It's great for kids. There are a lot of trails that they can run around on and have fun. The church sits on a hill that has a captivating view of Wiesbaden. It is truly beautiful.

Probably all Russian churches outside Russia, should be unique. But this one represents an unusual sample. First, it was built in memory of the sudden death of the Princess from Russian Imperial house, the wife of the local Duke. They had been married for only a year, and the Princess did not survive the pregnancy. She was only 19 years... More

We came here on the suggestion of our driver. There is a view from the Neroberg Hill, which frankly did not impress me on a winter day and the sky was not that clear. The church itself has an impressive facade. The benches outside provide a location for our group photo, with the church as background. They charge EUR2 for... More

The most beautiful thing in this Church is that we didn't really know about it while visiting the Neroberg Hill on Wiesbaden ..This historical chef d'oeuvre was in fact hidden between the big Geen tree. It's by walking near the top of the hill that we suddenly discovered it with a great facade. The church has three domes with splendid... More

The golden cupolas of this church could be seen from distance and the closer you come the more charming the building looks. I was really amazed and couldn't stop taking pictures. Also interior of the church is beautiful and it is definitely worth it to 2 EUR entrance fee. There is beautiful view to the city from the space in... More

You have to walk a little bit from bus stop, it's a very beautiful building with a very sad story. From top there, you'll have very nice view of the city.

I took the gondola ride up to the top of the hill and on the walk down we stumbled across the Russisch church. The gold spires can be seen poking through the trees and so intrigue takes you to the door. It's beautiful inside and serene around the church. I'd take a stop along the way down but I wouldn't...

The church is beautiful and wonderfully located on the Neroberg. A must see. You can take a walk through the park. The only annoying thing is that it is one of the only churches where you have to pay an entrance fee.

Our German friends took us here on an evening and learnt that this was built in remembrance of a rich Russian princess who came to Germany and married, later on died and the husband built this where her remains are also buried inside. The church was closed when we went but amazing architecture and landscaping. Worth a visit
