A Wooden Funicular Leading to a Cemetery

Since 1929 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.

For funeral parties, the incline railway is a convenient form of transport to the burial grounds, but anyone can enjoy the short ride with views over the town, as the funicular is part of the local public transport system.
