Quite a climb on the funicular to the top of Monte Bre but worth the cost just for the views. There are restaurants up there as well as lots of trails down the mountain. On a nice sunny day the panoramic views are definitely worth the trip.

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.

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.

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.

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.
