  • If you visit Baden-Baden, you can't miss the trip up the mountain, reachable by a funicular that takes you to the top where there is a small restaurant overlooking the scenic balcony and a small children's playground. It is a hill that attracts paragliding enthusiasts and it was amazing for our children to see these athletes launch themselves a few meters from us. The restaurant has affordable prices.

  • For 4 thor of the journey, the route of the funicular is splendid, pleasant and leads to a breathtaking view! You can visit an old tower, go for a walk or eat! We highly recommend!
