Stunning views, well worth the small price of the train journey! Lovely little traditional bar/restaurant at the top. Good value, lovely atmosphere! One downside was the miserable bus driver who told us not to bother as the train wasn’t running! So glad we ignored his...More

For some awesome views of the places all around, this is a must do. And if you visit in winter, the funicular ride itself is an experience. Snow topped conifers line the sides of the rails. It looks spectacular!

The day we visited the place was so cold and windy up there that we couldn't even exit the funicular station! But the up/down hill route through the forest is so beautiful that it definitely deserves a visit
