Always fun to take a cable train, especially if you go with a historical funicular. The Königstuhl funicular goes very slowly, but at the steepest point the railway has a 43 % gradiënt ! On the top there is a small café with a terrace...More

The views are fantastic at the top are fantastic on a nice clear day. Nice open air cafe at the top and there are displays of raptors which the kids will love. Can be very busy so allow plenty of time to buy tickets etc.

I so much wasted time that I could have spent in the beautiful castle. Going to the top takes forever and you just turn around and come back down. The views are better from the castle level because things are not too far.

We took this funicular from the Castle down to the Old City. This is the modern section of the two-section railway, built originally in 1890. It is about one-third of a mile long and just takes a few minutes to reach your destination.

We opted to get out at the stop above the castle first and take in the views of the city. There was a little cafe up there with outside seating and rest rooms. We sat there and enjoyed a cup of tea while looking at...More

A surging mass of people on a Saturday made for a less than perfect visit. The cars themselves are very cool, such excellent engineering. Worth the time for a ride to the top. Enjoy!
