“Great Photo Op”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

A short walk from our centrally located hotel, the funicular offers great views of the region - weather permitting. Not much to see during the ride up, but after you get off, walk the rest of the way to the summit and you can see for miles.

“Lovely views….walk to Bre”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

I took the funicular up to Mt. Bre. It is an historic tram that brings you up the very steep mountain. Looks like a wonderful place to have lunch at the top. I walked onto Bre, the village, was was SPECTACULAR. Small ambling streets full of art, sculptures, stone houses with flowers dripping out of window boxes. This also would be a great start for some mountain walks. I would do that next time.

“Great Views Although Expensive”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We took the funicular railway to the top, It was in my opinion expensive at 25CHF per person. If you are taking the train, they do not take credit or debit cards so cash only.

The views from the top are amazing, follow the paths to find the differnet views.

“Breathtaking view from the Top!!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

After a fun Cog Rail ride up to the station, we had to walk a couple of kilometers to reach a place where the view was to say the least Stunning.
Its a MUST see.

Tip for first timers:
Tickets are available at the next stop, watch out for the instructions.

“Excellent view”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Monte Bre is amazing. We chose low cost version to get at the top - by bus no 12 to Bre Paese and about 15 minutes walk to the top.
But this place was worth it. The views are amazing, Lugano looks great, like the Alps.
