  • A convenient way to get to the top of the Puy de Dome when it is too hot or when laziness takes over! Enjoyable ascent with beautiful landscapes as a bonus. Very good reception or at the counter to take the seats, still during the scan of the tickets. I recommend.

  • Arrived early on the site, we boarded the train at the top of the Puy de Dome. The train is new, very nice. The view uphill is very significant. We can take the time to look left and right while riding. Everyone loved it. The top, it's very beautiful... we had the chance to enjoy a thinning, which gave us the maximum visibility. We are mounted then down by train, but the descent on foot, by the way also needs to be very significant.

  • We did l go by train and the descent on foot. Still provide good shoes, there are a few passages slippery because of small pebbles, collection of volcanic stone on the road. The climb by train is fast and pretty, the site provides a splendid view, there are many tables d directions and animations, what stay more dune half day on-site.

  • Amazing views, until the rain came and we were soaked to the skin. So best enjoyed in good weather!
  • Great service. Fantastic panoramic view. And not that pricey.
  • If you are able, you should hike up and take the train down. There is no ticket station at the top though! Remember to buy a ticket before hiking up or you will have to beg the train attendant to let you on anyways lol
  • Must see place in Clermont-Ferrand. From puy de dome one can observe the picturesque view of extinct volcanos and the the city of Clermont-Ferrand
  • 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.
