First Visit

The fifth of March 2000 was a hot summer day, and as I headed towards Wiesbaden after work, a significant thunder storm was taking place. It still rumbled overhead when I visited the Nerobergbahn, but the evening sun was again sqeezing around the clouds.

 

A bridge and a shelter - looks promising. On the map back at the hotel they had written "Zahnradbahn" but I hoped for more.



 

An up we go. Indeed there is both a cable -for traction- and a cog rail -for braking- between the rails.




But the balcony with a view is not too far away and opens onto a beautiful view of Wiesbaden still figuring an ongoing thunderstorm in the background. The hill is a favourite promenade location for the local population, and even features an open-air swimming pool uphill.
