“Views of the city and Black Forest”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Use the lift to the South of Martinstor or the cable car to the North which is in the city park. The views on a clear day, which I had on both days are wonderful. The pub/restaurants are good too.

“Good walk, great views over city.”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Invigorating walk to the top where the restarant is. Was a beautiful sunny day and can't think of much better than sitting there as we did at the restaurant's outside deck overlooking the city having a beer or two.

“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!
