Super easy to get to from the middle of Freiburg via tram then bus - you cannot go wrong and it’s only €2.30 each way. The cable car is very easy going and a nice smooth journey up - clearly German engineered! The signs at...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.

Well worth a ride out - great views and quite an enjoyable 15 minutes ride up the cable car. You can see far beyond Freiburg once at the top.

Cable car up is great. Lovely views. Download app, free WiFi and get commentary on the journey. Walked up through nature course to observation tower. The cafe/resturant at the top serves great Black Forest gateaux and local beer/wine. Highly recommended if you’re in the area.,
