Excellent day out using a one-ticket - unlimited travel for 24-hours. 20 stops, get on and off all day, exploring the area. Well used, and unique in the world I reckon. Allows you to visit the zoo, and shop at Markt, where there is still...More

Hanging from the rail its not your average train ride. If in the area, DO visit. If you can understand dutch, do also book on the classic ride (the tour is german spoken only), there you can have a cup of coffee and lemon cake...More

I love the railway and ride as often as possible! They have some really old charming carriages, but also new high-tech ones. Great way to view the city from above and spot new places!

A one off experience which cannot be encountered anywhere else in the world. Well worth seeing. German engineering at its best and most quirky.

If you’re in the area you really must try and ride the Schwebebahn as it’s one of a kind. A great experience and not impacted by traffic. Trains run frequently even on weekends.

The railway that flies above a river. It takes an hour to complete a round and is a unique experience
