The views were amazing! We had coffee at the restaurant at the top of the mountain. The staff was very kind and spoke English too.

Absolutely go here when you're in Baden Baden. The 360 degree views are amazing. There's several hiking paths as well.

We took the funicular up and walked down. The views from the top are great. Enjoyed the walk down. It was easy and took about 45 mins. It was a hot day but the trees shaded the path most of the way down.

We had a few hours before sunset and decided to visit the mountain. The Merkur Funicular Railway was as exciting as the view. We had dinner and watched the sunset. Diner was nothing to brag about but the sunset was amazing.

if the weather is good take the time to take the funicular to the top of the "house" mountsin from Baden-Baden ... you will see a fantastic 360° view from the top of the little tower. See how close France is !

Love the awesome view from the top but could get pretty cold and windy. Could either hike up or take the Merkur Funicular Railway. Either way is awesome and worth the time. There is a cafe at the top that serves pretty authentic local food....More

Hi I apologise for not getting back to you, earlier I am unsure however I presume it operates through the entire year with exception of Christmas day. I may be wrong.

I would say about 1 hour and 30 minutes and just looked at Google maps and it thinks about the same. It's well sign posted so easy to find.

Lots of parking, I was there really off-season so probably busy from May - September.
