We used the funicular 'train' to get part way up the hill following out excellent lunch nearby. Once at the top of the funicular, the ladies decided to sit in the shade with what was already a fantastic view over Freiburg, while us lads decided...More

This is well worth the trip if you are mobile. A short ride on the funicular is followed by a 10 minute walk to the tower. It's a climb of 186 steps to the very highest point of the tower but the views are well...More

It is a must visit destination in Freiburg. Beautiful and complete view of the city. Though the climb is a bit more steep in beginning but it reduces once the restaurant is crossed. On the top there are two binoculars which work on 50 cents.

The schloss gardens are great, though be prepared for an uphill walk! Though the walk itself only took about 30mins at an average pace. There are plenty of walking tracks leading to the top depending on the level of fitness. It was very popular when...More

Like the name says, there used to be a castle/fortress on the top of this hill, but now almost no trace of it remains. Models of the medieval walled city in the Freiburg City Museum show the previous fortresses. What is there is a network...More

Once you get up you have a wonderful view of the city and the sorrounding landscape. If you feel dizzy, be careful, especially on a windy day as the tower tends to move a little!
