  • Excellent! Smooth ride, clean train and comfortable seats. The station is well equipped with tourist information and the train prices are reasonable and most of all happy employees.  more »
  • It's easy for them to milk up the price because this is the only way down if you don't want to walk. I feel bad for big families that cannot do the hiking... just one ticket was 10,40€ for this short ...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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)
