Fodor's Review

The road to Gernsbach, a couple of miles east of Baden-Baden, skirts this 2,000-foot-high mountain peak, 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 Berg Bahn cable car to the summit, but it's not a trip for the fainthearted—the incline (54 degrees) is one of Europe's steepest.
