4.6
#5 of 33 in Things to do in Baden-Baden
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.
