  • I had the chance to take the tram that does rising October 5, 2016, with great weather and very little world inside. Reading some comments, I said in the summer, it can't be easy with the world, heat and no airco. So ideal to make off-season with a clear skies for a wonderful view at the top.

  • Much to walk from the terminus of buses; they should discharge all near the base of departure passengers, even if it means that they have a longer course to pick them up. On the other hand, the material of the "panoramic" (sic!) is little; When you think that it was built at great expense in Switzerland, homeland of mountain railway... It happens away from the Summit: opportunity missed at the time of reconstruction. Finally, the restaurant on site is unsuitable and expensive. Signed: Tef TRAVAPEUR

  • Nice view over half france but cold and windy too. Spectacular cloud formations visible, which change during seconds. Price for train is ok (13,5€ p. P. two way)
  • Amazing views! It was pretty cold and windy but we survived and the view was worth it. We took the train round trip as we had already done a lot of hiking earlier in the day. The return ticket was 13.50 € per person.
  • Nice view over the Puy de Domes. Easy access by bus/car from Clermont Ferrand downtown. View is breathtaking, access to the top either by train or by foot. Crowded in summer.
  • Quick and easy but a bit too expensive. Wonderful panorama up there
  • A beautiful place on top of Puy de Domes. A must see!
