This was a cute rack rail that we took from Marienplatz to Degerloch. The Viet cafe at the top was a good place to stop for a treat. We also stopped at Weilandshohe station on the way down to take in some great city views.

Nice views from the Zahnradbahn! It was an interesting experience and we enjoyed it very much! They run fairly regularly and were on time! Also, good access to the Fernsehturm.

Took the rack railway up the hill and watch the view along the rail. A platform in the middle of the railway , people can see the city view there. Enjoy the sunset or night view!

A tram ride up a hill, nothing more. Catch it from Marienplatz and ride for 10 minutes up a hill. You get a decent view of the city but it's nothing to go out of your way for.
