    Amazing, the sensations in these more sloping funiculars in the world are breathtaking! What beautiful course, not to mention the train and its passages in tunnels, the views over the surrounding mountains are unforgettable. And arrival above the dam is really beautiful. Superb excursion. The restaurant at the top of the dam is good and plentiful.

    Impressive infrastructure, we arrived by train at the station Le Châtelard. You then have to walk a few meters to get to the home. It should be noted the courtesy and availability of staff. Ascension of the funicular is impressive, the slope is amazing! After the funicular, he takes a few steps to reach the station of the train, do not hesitate to visit the exhibition. The path of the train offers a splendid view of the mountains, there are tunnels through which are authentic. The climb with the mini-funiculaire, to wait a little while depending on attendance, because there are 8 places. Arrival at the top of the dam offers magnificent views. A games is available for children to the train. Hiking can be initiated (attention to well organized). Do not hesitate to make this attraction
