VerticAlp Emosson Reviews
Another very funny way to go to the second largest barrier lake in Switzerland. Once on top you can also visit the finding spot of dinosaurs traces (attention: 2.5 h of walk one way). Definitely worth... more »
Ein Super-Erlebnis. Nichts für nicht Schwindelfreie und Angsthasen. Probleme gibt's beim Parkieren an der Talstation, weil es zu wenig Parkplätze hat. Die vielen Gruppen sind ein anderes Problem.

Try to Dodge. And here's a tip: If the groups lavish mountain restaurant, stay in the Café in the middle station on the panoramic train and order a Valais plate. You get a Board with fine Valaisian specialties that loose enough for 2 persons, but also fr. 26 costs. Enjoy your meal!
Drie verschillende treinen of treintjes waarvan twee kabeltreinen brengen je naar de dam. De eerste en derde gaan redelijk steil. Het uitzicht op de dam doet denken aan lord of the rings. Zeer mooi. more »Three different trains or trains which two cable cars take you to dam square. The first and third go fairly steep. The dam view reminiscent of lord of the rings. Very nice.
Cool "vertical ride" to the top where you can see the Emosson dam with its magnificent construction. You will be also rewarded by the most stunning view of the mountains. The ride has three parts : funicular, a panoramic train and then a mini funicular. We got a 20% family discount on the tickets. A nice restaurant at the top where you can get the best cheese fondue Some people brought their own food and had a picnic :)
Bit pricey, but well worth a visit for the stunning views from the top. The funicular lives up to its name and goes vertically up the mountain - sit at the front for the best views and photographic opportunities, as long as you're not scared of heights! The mini train at the first level weaves you around the mountain side amidst fantastic vistas, whilst the tiny funicular whizzes you right to the top. The dams at the top are a feat of great engineering and there are walks to enjoy around them.
Amazing views and a very enjoyable ride.
great experience with a whole family
One of the Best Tourist Attractions in Switzerland!!! 3 amazing trains, including the steepest in the world! The panoramique train is so much fun!!! I smiled like a little kid! 😁 and once you get to the top, the view of Mont Blanc and the dam is breathtaking! A day that I will never forget!
