The interior is very basic. We couldn't go into the church downstairs because of the way the females were dressed...its strict. But the views of the city are more than worth the trip. The exterior with it's golden domes is also beautiful.

Love makes a man mad, even a monarch also. It creates wonders of the world like Taj Mahal. So is the case with Duke Adolf of Nassau whose love with his wife bloomed in the shape of this beautiful church. His 19-year Russian princess Elizabeth Mikhailovna, Grand Duchess of Russia and Duchess of Nassau (1826-1845) died in childbirth a year... More

The Russian orthodox church is a rather unusual building on top of the neroberg which really stands out. I've been up here before but never been inside before. It's quite impressive on the outside. To see the inside you have to pay a fee of 2€ for adults and 1€ for children which goes to a fund to maintain the... More

This is a beautiful building, you can see it from miles away, with the sun shining on the gold domes. Beautiful views over the town from here. You have to pay to go in 2euros per adult, it's tiny inside with some beautiful paintings, worth seeing if you appreciate that kind of thing. The Grand Duchess Elizabeth, niece of Tsar... More

There are clothing regulations to go inside to check that out before heading in the door. No photography allowed inside. Breathtaking scenery around the church too.

It is a nice church, but despite being free for years you now have to pay 2 Euros (1 euro child) to gain entry. And to be honest, it is not worthwhile.

We got there by car and there, we found a very beautiful architecture of the church and a wonderful view to the city. It is a calm and inspiring place. In 5 minutes walk there is a very interesting rope town.

The gold cupulas of the Russische Kirche glisten and gleam through the trees in the sunlight as you approach. This church is beautiful outside and inside. I visited it many times when I lived near it thirty-five years ago and found it equally moving and awe inspiring on a return visit last week. The views over Wiesbaden are beautiful too.... More
