We took a trip to the top and could see 360 degrees, a lovely view. It was cold and windy at the top, fun to climb the tower.

We went on a sunny Sunday lunchtime and there was a long queue. Tip -get someone to stand in the queue whilst someone else goes for the tickets. It's easy to stand in the queue thinking it's for the tickets when it's for the train....More

1. Would like to go on the funicular train up to the top. Will be driving a car from Baden-Baden airport. Is there a parking area before boarding the Funicular , and how far do you need to walk? Would like to know more on the walking required as will be having small children. 2. Where do you get the tickets from 3. Is there a schedule/opening hours info I can look up. Thanks.
