The longest funicular in Germany is a popular attraction and getaway to Baden-Baden. You will easily overcome slopes between 23% and 54% while mastering a drop of 370m in less than 5mn. Safe, environmentally friendly and comfortable, the funicular transports in a few minutes each year between 130,000 and 160,000 walkers, excursionists, hikers and nature lovers to the top of Merkur, the local hill of Baden-Baden, whose point highest is 668 meters above sea level. When you reach the top, this view offers a breathtaking panorama, from which you can see not only the Baden-Baden valley, the largest mountains in the north from the Black Forest and the Murg valley, but also more distant places such as the Plaine du Haut-Rhin, Vosges, Haardt and Odenwald. Also visible in the field of vision are the ruins of Hohenbaden and Alt-Eberstein, the Fremersberg, Yburg, Badener Höhe and Hornisgrinde mountains, as well as the big cities of Karlsruhe and Strasbourg. On the hill is the "Merkurstüble", a welcoming restaurant where visitors come to be pampered. Another advantage of the Merkur hill is that the visitor can put themselves in the shoes of a bird to discover Baden-Baden and its region, thanks to the comfortable two-seater paraglider which requires no effort.
