MerkurBergbahn, Baden-Baden

Climb aboard MerkurBergbahn, a funicular railway built in 1913 that carries passengers up Mount Merkur.

  • Wahoo! What a view and what a discovery. We took the funicular to mount and are back down to walk to enjoy the scenery. The ride is € 2 per person (€ 4 return). The done hiking path has little about 5 km and is very well signposted. Everyone can borrow it without problem. In addition, there is a large car park at the foot of the funicular.

  • The funicular is very nice... The view over the Valley and the surrounding area is great..! In some places, the funicular seems to climb vertically, extra...!

  • Amazing wonderful place with nice view on Schwartzwald and Baden-Baden. It is the highest mount of Schwartzwald  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
