Enjoy the funicular view to the mountain top restaurant. Sit with a picnic in the shade. Worth a morning for views across the Schwarzwald and beyond to the Rhine valley and the Vosges.

Short ride on the bus # 205 from Baden Baden Was not crowded as we went early. No wait for the funicular train. Steep ride. Very good. Only 16 Euro for family of 6. Great view from the top.

We enjoyed our trip to the top of Mt. Merkur. We had lunch on the pleasant terrace, walked around a bit seeing the hand-gliders, beautiful huge rhododendron bushes, and sat enjoying the views. Pretty enjoyable and inexpensive outing.

After getting the railway, head to the observation tower and get the lift. At the top you can stay inside or head up a few more stairs to the open deck for a panoramic view. Turin is on one side and Switzerland on the other....More
