We took bus #205 from town. The cabelcar operates automatically. It goes up a very steep grade. Coming down we got in the car and waited for it to go down. No, we had to press a button to make it go. Luckily, someone who knew that soon came and pressed it. Bus is not that frequent, so if you... More

Good fun activity with kids. The view from the top is fantastic. The train ride up is fun. There is a little playground for kids at the top.

We found out about this from our hotel staff and couldn't resist. The MerkurBergbahn is definitely one of the more interesting trains I've ever been on. You can hike up and down the mountain, but we had a limited amount of time and this took us up and down quickly, with amazing views. Absolutely worthwhile, even if you wind up... More

Merkur Bergban takes you to the top of Mount Merkur and back. You can reach the station by city bus 204 or 205 or by foot ( it will take you approximately 40 minutes from the city centre). If the weather allows, take a walk, it is pleasant and beautiful and will help you build up the appetite. The funicular... More

What a great way to get to the top. Easy to get to via public transport. Once up the top there are numerous hikes to choose from or just relax at the restaurant. The views are amazing.

The ride up is scenic and we were lucky enough to get the front seats. There is a decent playground at the top, some nice walks and a restaurant serving large portions of food - even if it doesn't come with the best service;

You buy your ticket from a disinterested woman who is clearly desperate to escape her little shop for another puff, then present it to a barcode reader and queue behind the automated turnstile. The cars run every 15 minutes and only take about 24 people, so the capacity is not enormous. That said, it's a long, steep ride to the... More
