Welcome to the Schauinsland!

Float with Freiburg's summit line to 1220 meters above sea level - even with a handicap! Accessibility is important to us. Numerous improvements around Germany's longest circulating cable car have led to us being awarded the "Accessibility Tested" certificate according to the criteria of the nationwide "Travel for All" label.

Barrier-free at an altitude of 1200 meters with the Schauinslandbahn. Under the motto "Schauinsland for all", we also want to make it possible for people with limited mobility to climb Freiburg's local mountain. We have already made numerous modifications so that you can access both the buildings and the cabin via short ramps. As a further building block for barrier-free use, the mountain and valley station also offer a "toilet for all" that can be used by people with multiple disabilities. These toilets are characterized by a special closure, a care couch, a person lifter and various other aids. Under detailed information you will find a detailed description of the situation on site. The "Toilet for All" is a project of the Stiftung Leben pur (Pure Life Foundation) and has received financial support. The foundation works nationwide to ensure that such toilets are built in public places. Our service staff will be happy to help and advise you during your stay. You will find detailed information about arrival and departure as well as your individual use of the Schauinslandbahn under Downloads.
