MerkurBergbahn, Baden-Baden

4.7
Climb aboard MerkurBergbahn, a funicular railway built in 1913 that carries passengers up Mount Merkur. At the top, walk along the pathways through the forest, or let children burn some energy on the playground. A short hike leads to an observation deck for views over the Black Forest--and a popular launching point for paragliding.

  • If you are here to the area, you should take the MerkurBergbahn. The ride is very nice up and you can enjoy a beautiful view.

  • What a great way to get to the top of the mountain. Goes faster than what you would expect and lots to see on the way up, has you looking for more on the way down.  more »

  • The winter is not tough in the region; anyway, this place is designed to be visited during other 3 seasons. You should avoid it if the weather is windy, chilly, and snowy. Nonetheless, the view is stunning and the landscape is picturesque; thus, you should take a few photos on the top of the mountain.
  • Neat cable system to pull up the cars. Great view from the top. We enjoyed watching the paragliders jump off the edge and sail way up in the sky on thermals. The tower with an elevator at the top was neat, too.
  • This Mercure train station takes you to the UP of the mountain and gives you a chance to see Baden-Baden and The restaurant offers multiple meals
  • So a nice view... and nice sunset...
  • Excellent experience on push pull train
