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.

This is a small but very beautiful church. I love the architecture of churches and this one was pretty spectacular. It has 5 gold dome spires. It has a wonderful calm, spiritual feel inside. Ladies visiting do not need to borrow scarves for their head (I asked). I paid for 2 candles - be careful about that. The two she... More

The church is majestic from the distance with its towering gold domes. To view the very small but exquisite interior, one must pay a two Euro entrance fee. There is an ornately decorated sarcophagus dedicated to Elizabeth, who died at a young age and was the wife of Adolf. Although the actual space is shockingly small and confining, it is... More

Know that the walk down from the funicular isn't that long but it is a little steep and if you have trouble walking you might want to take the car and park in the parking lot closer to the church. The view of the church is amazing from the parking lot as the gold domes are surrounded by the trees.... More
