Highly efficient, fun and good value way to get up and down to the Baumwipfelpfad. Runs regularly throughout the day and into early evening.

An electric funicular (mountain-side train) is the best way to reach the top of the mountain. It is fast and efficient and gives you maximize time to spend in the forest area and breath the fresh air and smell the pine trees.

It is less than 10 mins ride up the mountain. Roundtrip ticket is 4EUR. Gives nice views of the town below and great way to save time. One can also walk up the hill.

To get full view of Bad WIldbad, just take this funicular. It is a very short ride and you are on the top of muontain. From there you have fantastic views.

Fantastic little funicular with a wonderful view. In April trains are every 30 mins and take a few mins. The waiting area at the top has a fab mid-century interior.
