  • July 1898: inauguration of the funicular of the Capuchin in the Mont-Dore. September 2016: this funicular still works perfectly. It is simply the oldest funicular electric of France. You may wonder if the original cables have been changed? Ask at the very funny driver to visit the machinery on arrival at the station upstream. You will not be disappointed and you will surely make this authentic back to "The modern times" photo. And then, if you are good walkers, and if you don't mind a last steep climb, equip you with good shoes and sticks and market, on arrival at the "Salon of the Capuchin" launch you to the peak of the Capuchin. You will get there in 45/50 minutes for a 360 ° breathtaking and a great memory of this "cowled monk".

  • It looks dated both touching and comforting this unique wagon creaking of all its wood to the departure and arrival. We know more if you're on a ship straight out of a fairy tale where in one of those improbable trains of the early ages. To do this climb at least once. If it is cool dress warm because there are no tiles to windows, if one can speak of windows. Up there are several hiking trails available. Those who like me now have locomotion problems, (good for example hip pain) may be who some exercise down pretty easy trail goes right of the station upon arrival immediately.
