This is a review of a Russian Orthodox Church. What is there to review? They still have someone inside collecting donations, the stained glass is awesome, the marble alter is amazing. The best thing about this church is it’s location on the hill above Wiesbaden....More

Yes, there is a Russian orthodox church right in Wiesbaden! I've been walking past it many times and when family from the US came to visit I decided to spend the entrance fee to go inside. It is a minimal fee of about 2 Euro....More

During the winter, gift shop and tourist area is not heated. The building is amazing and can almost be seen from anywhere in town. At nighttime it is lit and really shines.

Beautiful Edifice and lots of gold on the inside, but the lady inside didn't allow photography and was rather rude.

The church is definitely interesting to see and a peculiar piece of architecture in this place but I do not know why they charge an entrance fee. In the end it’s just the church nave with some (beautiful, that’s true) icons and statues.

I have visited the Russisch-Orthodoxe Church (also called : Griechische Kapelle) several times over the years with friends visiting Wiesbaden. Always nice to go back there. The view over the city of Wiesbaden is very nice!!

From my balcony I can see the top of the Russian Church. It’s just up the hill from where the houses are, but it feels like kilometers away because of the beautiful wooded setting. It’s very small compared to most Orthodox Churches, but it’s beautiful....More

...but not as beautiful as the one in Darmstadt. If you are in Neroberg, worth a stop, but not an extra detour there. As some people, nice but not impressing outside, beautiful inside....
