This funicular railway has linked a cemetery in the middle of a forest with the city of Stuttgart in the valley nearly 300 feet below since 1929. The incline railway is a convenient form of transport to the burial grounds for funeral parties, but anyone can enjoy the short ride with views over the city as the funicular is part of the local public transport system. The funicular cars are made of teak and mahogany and are beautifully preserved. The two cars are connected to a long cable and use only one track except in the middle, where the ascending and descending car has to pass each other.
