Description:
The Standseilbahn Stuttgart or Stuttgart Cable Car is a funicular railway in the city of Stuttgart, Germany. The line links the Südheimer valley station with the Stuttgart Degerloch forest cemetery in the south quarters of Heslach. Operated by Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen AG (SSB), it was opened on 30 October 1929 to facilitate visitors to the forest cemetery which is above Stuttgart Heslach. At Südheimer, the funicular connects to Stuttgart Stadtbahn lines U1 and U14.

The funicular has the following technical parameters:

  • Length:
  • Height:
  • Maximum steepness: 28.3%
  • Journey time: 3 minutes
  • Cars: 2
  • Capacity: 74 passengers per car
  • Traction: Electricity
  • Track Gauge:


The two cars, constructed of teak, were manufactured by Esslingen Engine Works. In December 1999, one of the cars was damaged by an uprooted tree as a result of a thunderstorm, but was afterwards restored. The line was modernised in 2004 in order to meet the new European Union safety guidelines. Since 24 July 2004, it is again running on schedule.

The line is one of two active transport tourist attractions in Stuttgart, the other being the Stuttgart Rack Railway (line 10).

The line sometimes is referred to as 'Erbschleicherexpress' which translates as legacy hunter express.
