Merkur Review

The road to Gernsbach, a couple of miles east of Baden-Baden, skirts the 2,000-foot-high mountain peak Merkur, named after a monument to the god Mercury that dates from Roman times and still stands just below the mountain summit. You can take the cable car to the summit, but it's not a trip for the fainthearted—the incline (54 degrees) is one of Europe's steepest.
