The Black Forest Railway is one of the most beautiful and technically interesting railway lines in Germany. With 38 tunnels, the Black Forest Railway is one of the most tunnel-rich railways in Europe and at the same time the one with the fewest bridges. Construction of the railway was completed in 1873. To this day, the Black Forest Railway is one of the most famous mountain railways in the world and has become the model for many other lines. It connects Karlsruhe and Kreuzlingen over a distance of 250 kilometres. In the process, it overcomes a difference in altitude of 670 metres with a maximum gradient of 20 per mille.
