Schlossberg and Funicular Railway
Schlossbergbahn Funicular Railway.

Fortified structures had been built on the Schlossberg (roughly translated: The Castle Hill) since the 11th century. Remains of some of them are still visible today. For a few years now the board of trustees has tried to make the historical past of the Schlossberg in Freiburg more visible. To achieve this, the remains of the old, overgrown fortifications are being carefully uncovered so that they are available to interested visitors. The tower located on the hill (Schloßbergturm) from which one has a unique panoramic view over the whole town and its vicinity was built in 2002 and was a project of the board of trustees as well. Extensive hiking trails offer a panoramic view of the town and vicinity.

The top of this hill can be reached in 3 mintues via Schlossbergbahn, a funicular railway.

Hours: Daily from 9am until 10pm (Tuesdays until 6pm).

Admission: Round trip fares range from 2.50 € for Children ages 6-14 to 5 € for Adults.
