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.,
