We rode this funicular only to get up to the castle but wish we had had more time to ride it further up the mountain.

Slow trip to the top in a old fashioned funicular. Excellent views and very close to Märchen Paradies for have fun with my kids. In Summer the ventilation in the funicular cabin is not good.
