“CLOSED: Save yourself the walk!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Very poorly signed. Next to impossible to find this lookout tower. When I did, it was closed indefinitely.

There's some absolutely stunning forest walks to get there, but if you're searching for 360 degree city views you'll have to go elsewhere.

“Nice city views”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Short tram ride up the mountain with a lovely walk to the top. Go if it is a clear day for the view or just for the excercise. A nice side trip.

“Magnificent view of the valley.”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

My son and I enjoyed the ride up in the funicular. The walk to the top from the station was a bit long, bum knee, but we made it. My son climbed the observation tower and really liked the view. We explored the fortress ruins at the top which has been reclaimed by nature for the most part. Occassional signs explain what was once there. Next to the funicular station on top is a small restaurant serving desserts. Wonderful! Get the Black Forest sundae...nothing like it!

“Nice view!”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

Nice little funicular ride up the mountain where you get nice views of the city. There are several walking trails from here around the mountain and you can even walk along the ridge line to neighboring villages if you have the time.

“Nice walk, but forget the view”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

The walks are super, lovely wide paths that lead around the "mountain" and into the forest (not yet black forest, but a nice preview).
The panorama over Freiburg is nothing special, so don't go up hoping to have a wow effect.
It is a gentle climb, no need to take the cablecar, unless you have childrens who really really wanna take it!
