“A pleasant ride with beautiful scenery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

The bergbahn is a good idea at any time of the year. The views across Baden-Baden and the surrounding area are wonderful. At the top is a stone tower, that allows you to see for quite a distance, to France and across the Black Forest. The entrance to the tower is confusing for the first time visitor. There is a metal door and it is locked, however one must press the button on the wall next to the door. This will then buzz to unlock the door. Watching the hang-gliders taking off from the hillside is particularly fascinating. There are play areas for children and nice wooden lounge chairs.This is a great thing to do, no matter whether you are a tourist or a local, alone or with someone.

“Amazing place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

The bahn or the train is amazing. The first time we went there, there was no one. The whole thing is automated. You take the tickets, wait for the train, get inside, close the doors and there you go. Had a good fun on the train.
The view from the mountain is mind-blowing. Makes one feel like flying into the mountains. Must visit if you are near Baden-Baden.

Merkurbergbahn is a funicular railway in the town of Baden-Baden and you should try it! The views from the hill are spectacular!
