    The cable car runs every 20 minutes from about 9 o'clock. Driving time about 3 minutes. The clock can be reduced to up to 9 trips per hour, depending on the number of passengers. The mountain station is at 382 meters, the track is 536 meters long and has a slope of 28.2%. The cars have a curb weight of 7.8 tonnes and carry a comfortable 11km / h maximum 75 people.
    The track is also called "Erbschleicher-Express" :-)

    Weird thing this short tour with the historic cable car. By the way, very nice drivers.
    The ticket costs € 1.30. A normal short-distance ticket of the VVS is sufficient.
    In summer, between 09:00 and 20:00, the train leaves every 20 minutes.

    The funicular railway, or as the Stuttgarter affectionately calls it, Erbschleicherexpress, leads from Heslach (valley station) to the Waldfriedhof (mountain station). There are no intermediate stations.

    The cable car from Heslach to the Waldfriedhof is a must-see for Stuttgart tourists. The "pet name" is "Erbschleicherexpress". Not very flattering. But reflects the fine humor of the Stuttgart Swabians again.

    A piece of Stuttgart nostalgia, memories of the lifts in Lisbon are awake.

    You have a bit of the feeling of being in San Francisco. The historic cable car is in excellent condition. Too bad that the ride only 5 min. lasts.

    Funicular Stuttgart

    The funicular Stuttgart connects since 30 October 1929 the Südheimer Platz in the district Heslach (valley station 48 ° 45 '21.2 "N, 9 ° 8' 32" O) without intermediate stop with the forest cemetery in the district Degerloch (mountain station 48 ° 45 ' 6.1 "N, 9 ° 8 '43.6" O). It is operated by the Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen AG (SSB) and in Stuttgart itself usually referred to only as a "cable car". Since the late 1990s, she is also included as "Line 20" in the line number system of the light rail Stuttgart. At Südheimer Platz there is connection to their lines U1 and U14.

    In contrast to comparable facilities, the Stuttgart cable car serves little tourism purposes, but mainly the local public transport. It is integrated in the tariff of the traffic and tariff association Stuttgart (VVS) and can be used at its regular tariff.

    It is also popularly referred to as the "Erbschleicher Express", "Funny Widow Train" (this name was introduced in 2004) or "Widow Express". Another nickname alluding to their feature as a funicular is "Schnürlesbahn".

    Today's funicular was built by the Esslingen machine factory in 1928/1929. At the time, it replaced a bus line “W”, like the Waldfriedhof, which was established in 1914, the year the cemetery opened. The connection made it easier for cemetery visitors to overcome the height difference of 85 meters between Heslach and the Degerloch forest cemetery.more: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standseilbahn_Stuttgart

    You have to have driven once when you are in Stuttgart! Absolutely unique and historical. You can hike above the forest cemetery, which is laid out like an old park.

    Divergent pull each other up the mountain. In the middle, the rails are short double-track to make it possible to pass. The tickets are the same as for the subway, a day ticket is also valid here. From the top there are beautiful views over Stuttgart
