Opened in May 1908, this cable car runs between Wildbad, at 420 m over sea level, and the Sommerberg at 720 m. There are two cars, connected with the cable on one rail. This way, the descending car helps in lifting its counterpart. A stationary electric motor with 220 kW is sufficient to power the cable car. Each car has 60 seats and has place for up to 100 persons. Besides walking and Nordic Walking, the Sommerberg is with the Northwave Bikepark, a paradise for Mountain Bikers. The Sommerbergbahn functions as a lift for two very challenging downhill tracks and two easy free ride tracks, which explains the martial looking bikers with helmets and protectors. The Sommerberg, part of the high plateau of the northern part of the Black Forrest, is also a starting point for normal bike tours. The Sommerbergbahn, owned by the city of Bad Wildbad, is run by the Stadtwerke.
