The cable car ride to the Schauinsland offers really nice views. The vista from the Bergstation is nice but the one from the top of the hill (Eugen Keidel Tower) is spectacular. In a good weather you can see the Swiss Alps. If you're afraid...More

This is a nice closed cable-car ride that pairs nicely with the nearby mine tour. Good for all ages and can even bring aboard a stroller.

Drive to Guntherstal and take the cable car to the top: you won’t regret it, for the views of the Vosges, the Kaiserstuhl, the Freiburg area and the Black Forest are wonderful. A round trip will cost you 12.50 euros, with reductions for children and...More
