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

We took the small, town road train, from the city centre and after an interesting journey through some of Wiesbadens most expensive roads we ended up at the top of the Neroberg where the church is located. The building is topped by beautiful Golden globe roof and is a very interesting structure. Entry is two euros which gives access to... More

The church is beautiful inside and out. The history associated is fascinating. You are authorized to go into 1 room only and look. It is forbidden to take pictures inside, but you can buy them at their display area along with postcards and other religious memorabilia. The staff was unfriendly and rushed is through.

There were perhaps 30 people in the building and it was over crowded. Its amazing how little room there is on the inside. I understand the parishoners have to stand during their 3 hour long Sunday Service.
