Welcome on the Schauinsland!
Climb up to 1220 meters high with the Freiburg line to the summit, even with a handicap! Accessibility is important to us. This is why many improvements have been made in recent years on the longest loop cable car in Germany.
And as always, we strive to make your ride in the historic cable car even more enjoyable and eliminate possible obstacles. On this website, you will find all available possibilities with the Schauinsland cable car. If you see potential improvement on our website or direct on-site, do not hesitate to contact us !
Persons with reduced mobility
Access without barriers at 1200 meters above sea level thanks to the Schauinsland cable car. According to the motto "Schauinsland for all", we wish to allow the ascent of the Freiburg mountain to people with reduced mobility. We have already undertaken many renovations: so you can access the buildings and cabins through a short ramp. Further adaptations for disabled access to the lower and upper stations include a “Toilet for all”. These toilets have been specifically adapted for our reduced mobility guests. Adaptations include a special door closing mechanism, a nursing bench, a hoist and various other accessories. In our detailed information download you will find further information. “Toilets for all” is a project funded by “Leben Pur” which is a foundation involved nationwide in establishing improved access toilets in public places. Our service staff remains at your disposal for any advice during your stay. You will find more information about departures and arrivals, as well as about your stay, in our download section.
