MerkurBergbahn, Baden-Baden

(4.7/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The bergbahn in itself was already an experience for children 7 and 5 years old. Once above enjoy a very nice view. For the children there is a nice playground.
