In operation since way back in 1889, today Polybahn funicular rail transports around 50 passengers every two minutes, in both directions. And the route is the very same as that of when it first commenced.

The Pfannenstiel Tower was renovated in the summer of 2013 and has a turbulent history: The steel lattice tower was originally built on Bachtel mountain in 1893. Since it was not suitable as an aerial mast, it was reconstructed on the Pfannenstiel in 1992.
