Attractions to explore nearby Oberweißbacher Bergbahn

Oberweißbacher Bergbahn98746 Mellenbach-Glasbach, Germany

The Oberweißbacher Bergbahn is a railway line in the Thuringian Slate Mountains. Since 1922 it has connected the Obstfelderschmiede stop on the Schwarzatalbahn with the community of Cursdorf.  The railway consists of a 1.351-kilometer wide-gauge funicular railway and an adjoining 2.635-kilometer long, standard-gauge, and electrified adhesion line. The latter is often referred to as a flat section to distinguish it from the cable car.
