|Funicular railway in Wiesbaden|
In 1939, it was planned to convert the line to electric propulsion, but the outbreak of World War II prevented this. The line was taken out of service in 1944 due to war damage, but service was restarted in 1948. In 1988 the line was protected as a technical monument by the State of Hesse. On the top of the hill there are spectacular views of Wiesbaden.
