Make sure you get a blue sky picture. It is great to enjoy the evening and finish off the day with a drink.

Get there by car, bus or the tourist train. The system works well and the waiting time is around 6 mind if you miss a departure. Restaurant and observation tower at the top plus plus a play area for the kids. Great views

Our satnav took us to the wrong car park. So we enjoyed a walk through woods to the Funicular station. The ride is steep and quick. Once at the top a short up hill walk to the tower. Spectacular views well worth the effort. There...More

The funicular takes you through the heart of the black forest to the top of the Merkur mountain and is the easier way to get to the top - you could of course walk up if you are up to it. The ride is enjoyable...More
