Check into the summer special in the evening, which we lucked into. Beautiful scenery, and ate at the cafe at the top. A very memorable start to our vacation!

Fun adventure with great views if traveling near Gruyeres, but a bit costly. You can take the funicular to the top of the mountain or hike, we chose to hike to the half-way point and then ride up the rest of the way. The hike...More

Expensive but definitely worth it for the views. You feel as though you are on top of the world! Coffee at the top is also expensive! No time limit on how long you can stay at the top with the cable car and furnicular running...More

Very funny option for all family with winter sports or beautiful view from the mountain. Just some minutes away from Gruyere with an hourly bus. Good restaurant at the top with an amazing view (if the weather allows).

Nice cable car ride. Lovely walk with sweeping 360 degrees views. Decent restaurant on top - for a mountain top hike, the food does the job.

The Funiculaire and the cable car at Moleson sur Gruyeres takes you up the Le Moleson peak which is about 2000 meters above sea level. There is a large parking lot at the base which allows visitors to park for free. The total trip time...More

The funicular is great and you get some good views. We then took the cable car to the top and as we were spoilt by the weather, stayed up there in the sunshine for a couple of hours. We were also fortunate enough to see...More
