Right on the doorstep of Freiburg and 1248m high, the Schauinsland is one of the most popular excursion destinations for everyone who loves Freiburg.


Explore the Schauinsland on foot on a hike through the Black Forest and across green meadows. Europe’s longest circulating cable car takes you up – the Schauinslandbahn.

At the summit you climb the observation tower, visit the museum mine or indulge yourself with coffee and cake in the panorama restaurant “Die Bergstation”. Freshly strengthened, you can go downhill on foot.

Getting there:

Take tram number 2 from Bertoldsbrunnen towards Günterstal, get off at the Günterstal Dorfstraße terminus, then take bus 21 to the Schauinsland valley station and take the cable car towards the summit. The way back is on the> signposted hiking trail from the mountain station.

You can reach the Schauinsland in about 30 minutes by car.
