The Schauinslandbahn is a gondola lift in the Black Forest area of Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It links a lower station in the municipality of Horben, near the city of Freiburg im Breisgau, with an upper station near the summit of the Schauinsland mountain. The line is operated by VAG Freiburg, the city transport operator for Freiburg. The same company operates that city's tram and bus network, including bus route 21 that links the lower station of the Schauinslandbahn to the terminus of tram route 2 at Günterstal.At in length, the line is reportedly the longest gondola lift in Germany. It was the first suspended cable car in the world to provide continuous operation of multiple cabins, as opposed to the shuttle style operation of the aerial tramway.HistoryIn the first years of the 20th century, several proposals were made to link Freiburg to Schauinsland. The extension of city tram route 2 on segregated track to Günterstal in 1913 was intended as the first section of a high speed tramway that would connect with a proposed rack railway to the mountain's summit. Other proposals included an aerial cableway, proposed by Professor Georg Benoit of the University of Karlsruhe, and a much longer adhesion railway from Freiburg Hauptbahnhof via Schauinsland to Todtnau. The outbreak of the First World War stopped any further progress on these plans.To visit Schauinslandbahn and other attractions in Horben, use our Horben trip itinerary maker website .

The gondola ride was fun and is "relatively" long. The price is cheap, we have booked with the ticket "Coffee gossip" (1 drink, 1 piece of cake). You then in the morning as breakfast with the ticket book this. Please note that you must sign this in the mountain station. The staff was very friendly and was not a problem with the stroller. The located goes eco with 100% power. You again.

Wie die meisten Touristen sind auch wir bis zur Talstation mit dem Auto gefahren. Toll, daß die Parkplätze dort nichts kosten. Mit der Kabinenbahn ging's dann nach oben mit einem herrlichen Ausblick, ... more »Like most tourists we drove up to the station with the car. I love that the parking there costs nothing. With the cable car we went upwards with a magnificent view, and without any waiting time. Above, you can make then still a beautiful walk to the observation tower and climb it. Unfortunately, the visibility was not so gigantic despite glorious weather, but I loved it anyway. The restaurant at the mountain station offers a wide selection of different meals at a fair price. Such a trip is only to recommend.

Below the Summit, you can park free of charge and on beautiful and well-maintained trails to the Summit with the Schauinslandturm hike (just 15 minutes). From the Tower, we had great views of Freiburg, of Alsace in the Swiss Alps. So beautiful!
