  • Under condition to choose a day or the weather is clear, the Pan is a great way to discover the beauty of the chain of puys. If the time of allows, you will also enjoy the view on Clermont-Ferrand and also on the chain of the Sancy. Once at the top it is essential to make the tour of the antenna. In summer, take a few moments to enjoy the takeoff of paragliders.

  • Convenient to access the top of the puy de dome with young children. Lets see the panorama during ascension

  • The train that takes you to the top is very nice but the price is still pretty high. I would recommend the couple with children at an early age but also to those who cannot borrow the paths that lead to the Summit. An application is available for free in home site. It will provide you with a few explanatory of the mountains through the ages.

  • 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 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)
  • Worth a half day visit! Amazing views from the top and really convenient transport.
  • Quick and easy but a bit too expensive. Wonderful panorama up there
  • A beautiful place on top of Puy de Domes. A must see!
