Nice views from the Zahnradbahn! It was an interesting experience and we enjoyed it very much! They run fairly regularly and were on time! Also, good access to the Fernsehturm.

Took the rack railway up the hill and watch the view along the rail. A platform in the middle of the railway , people can see the city view there. Enjoy the sunset or night view!

A tram ride up a hill, nothing more. Catch it from Marienplatz and ride for 10 minutes up a hill. You get a decent view of the city but it's nothing to go out of your way for.

This leaves Marienplatz every 15 mins or so. It travels very steeply uphill and there are amaxing views on a clear day. You can get off at stops en route and either return the same way or catch a U train to the city centre...More
