Nerobergbahn

Funicular in Wiesbaden

The easiest way to get up the Neroberg is aboard this water ballast-powered funicular railway from 1888. The top car is filled with up to 7000L of water, making it heavier than the bottom car, to which it’s attached by a 452m-long cable. When the heavier car reaches the bottom, the water is pumped out and back up the hill.
