The mountain is easily accessible via bus lines and a funicular. Note that the weather is very changeable. The hotels have low prices but limited facilities.

  • Through a tricky away from several times to switch from tram to metro to bus, we arrived at the elevator up. It's a beautiful way up and he takes about 20 mins on top of there was snow and it was very crowded with children who ski lessons. In the panorama restaurant just ate something but that's not recommended! You can also down the road again with the do cable elevator.
