MerkurBergbahn, Baden-Baden
(4.7/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • Unable to enjoy the view, but the rise in the clouds was fantastic! The small café was opened despite the weather. Funny thing, the funicular is self-service, we moved and pressed "start"!

  • We took bus #205 from town. The cabelcar operates automatically. It goes up a very steep grade. Coming down we got in the car and waited for it to go down. No, we had to press a button to make it go. ...  more »
  • We climbed in the morning with the merkurbahn to the top. We enjoy a different and fun trip. There are two cars (one at the station below) and the other at the top station and crossed during the journey. The cars are electric and go alone, without a driver. Both the ascent and the descent reminiscent of a roller coaster, but at a reduced speed. We liked all the way.
