Went here with a group of friends. Great place to sit, talk, have a beer, and enjoy the view. Wonderful way to get an idea of what the area looks like, all the way to the border of France.

The view from the top, over the woods and hills of southern Germany is well worth the ride. There is a café with its own wonderful view

Really steep funicular railway to top of mountain. Cafe/restaurant at top. Lovely views and walks. Signposting of routes a little vague though. Children's playground and sun loungers available. Fenced area with wildlife including deer and wild boar. Paragliding site too!

Took the cable car up the mountain just after it opened. Great views from the top. They have a restaurant at the top you can order lunch or beverages. Go early.

The Merkur cable car is a reasonable self service ride up the mountain. Seems to open at 10am. Drop your coins to get a one way or better a round trip ticket. Place ticket arrow side forward into the machine to get through the turnstile and walk up to get into the cable car. Push button "Abfahrt" to get moving... More

you may buy the ticket already on the offical bus line. You don't have to wait, you use the cable car as a elevator.

Walked to the station from Baden Baden which was lovely. 4 Euros for a return trip. Great fun and a fabulous café at the top. We were lucky with the views. A thoroughly enjoyable few hours.
