Something different

A lovely short train ride to the top of the mountain, just a 30 minute walk from the centre of Baden Baden.

It was an excellent trip on a cold and sunny February morning. There is ample parking place outside the Talstation where you have to get the tickets for the funicular to go up the mountains. It takes about 3 to 4 minutes and pretty steep. On the top is a nice cafe and eatery and great view of the Black... More

Our primary trip to Baden Baden was for the spa. The Merkurbergbahn is a real short drive from town and totally worth the trip. The funicular is very steep and the ride takes a few minutes. The technology used to get up the hill is amazing. The views are spectacular. There are many hikes once you are up on the... More

A little hard to find from centre of town and a good walk for the fit! Once you get to the top of the mountain the views are amazing. We went on a cold snowy day and was great to see families with small children using sleds to get back down. Plenty of hiking. Would love to go back in... More

Nice excursion with excellent few over Baden-Baden. A great experience to take the small railway to the top of the mountain. Good restaurant on top of the mountain with local Baden food.

It's a bit of a trek to walk up to the funicular, google says 18 minutes but it didn't take into account how many times you have to stop to catch your breath as it's so steep - it took us nearly an hour! But it was well worth it, the ride itself is gently and the views on the... More

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. Luckily, someone who knew that soon came and pressed it. Bus is not that frequent, so if you... More

Good fun activity with kids. The view from the top is fantastic. The train ride up is fun. There is a little playground for kids at the top.
