Nice short trip up the mountain. The views are nice on the way. In the lower station there are no benches to sit if you're waiting.

Cool ride!
Aug 2020 • Couples
This was our first time riding the Sommerberg Funicular. We bought the round trip for about €9/person. The cars came quickly and the ride was very comfortable. However, the cars aren’t very large, so plan ahead so you don’t run into large crowds.

View is stunning

I like funiculars and taking this ride offers you fantastic view over Bad Wildbad. There are lot of hiking routes on top of the hill (or mountain whatever) so it is nice way to spend time. The funicular rode every 30 mins but it was summer and corona so it might operate more often normally.

Glass cable car to ascend to the observation tower. Sit in the very front for a 180 Disney like ride.

What a nice convenient way to get up to the mountain and explore the many pathways and tree top walks. Really worth the few Euro.

I really enjoyed the cable car. Very nice views and trails on top of the mountain. Well organized, clean and leaves on time.

Best Way to Get to the Top
Jul 2019 • Couples
We visited on a very hot day and the cable car was quite warm. Must have been the 30 people that got off before we got on. Our car left with only 5 people on it so it was still warm but not too bad. It's a short ride to the top and it was fun watching where we were going and where we came from. Those with fear of heights may have an issue but there are seats for those people. We stood for the ride so we could look out the windows.
Once we got to the top we walked up the short hill to the lookout tower. HINT: At the base of the tower, push the button in front of the door to get the door to open. Then climb the stairs or take the elevator - yes they have an elevator! Great view from the very top. A constant cool breeze may it very nice. No one else was up there so we stayed for a good 20 minutes, very peaceful, quiet and cool. Great views of the surrounding area.
Cable car ride down the mountain was fun, as long as you don't panic your fellow traveler by asking what would happen if the cable snapped? Definitely worth a trip to the top for some great views and a fun ride in the funicular! We would do it again,

An easy way to get up the Sommerberg. Good views over the valley. Note it only goes every half hour.

Stunning vista from this modern Railway
May 2019
We decided to hike the Somnerberg mountain trails so to give the car a rest we took the funicular railway to the top. The fare was 14euro return each which is not cheap but the views from the glass roof rail car were spectacular on the sunny day we rode it. After a long walk in the Black Forest we return to the railway for a smooth accent back into the town.
