The Schlossberg (roughly translated: Castle Hill) is a tree covered hill of 456m located in the area of the city of Freiburg im Breisgau. It is directly to the east of Freiburg’s Old Town and belongs to the Black Forest.
The main geological fault is at the western edge of the Schlossberg towards the Upper Rhine Graben.
The Schlossbergbahn, or Castle Hill Railway, is a funicular railway in the town of Freiburg im Breisgau in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It links the city centre with the Schlossberg hill.
The funicular was constructed in 2008, in order to replace a previous cable car. It is operated by the Schlossbergbahn GmbH & Co. KG.
