There is an elevator at the top station and the funicular railway is fully accessible. For nature experiences, adventures, walks, hikes, bicycle and mountain bike tours, the Sommerberg is the starting point.

Additional Information

Ride in one of the ultra-modern panoramic cars and enjoy the breathtaking views as you are carried along.

Riding up the Sommerberg is something to behold! With spectacular views of the city, it is a short but very pleasant ride. Once you get to the top, the paths to the WILDLINE and to the treetop walk are very well signposted.

Once at the top, where to go next?

There are so many things to do on the Sommerberg after the impressive funicular railway ride.

The mountain station has a lovingly designed exhibition. This is definitely the best way to get to the Sommerberg and a great way to start a great day out.

Thrills on the WILDLINE

The WILDLINE awaits brave visitors at the end of the Fairy-tale Path. The hanging bridge is not recommended for those suffering from vertigo, especially since you can't see the end of the bridge. Here, too, there is a fantastic view of the valley of the Enz and the Black Forest.
