#4 of 8 in Parks in Canton of Fribourg
Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
The Moléson (French: Le Moléson) (2,002 metres) is a mountain of the Swiss Prealps, overlooking the region of Gruyères in the canton of Fribourg. It lies at the northern end of the chain between Lake Geneva and the valley of the Sarine.

The summit of the mountain can be easily reached, a cable car station being located near the summit at 1,982 metres as well as a meteorological station. From the village of Moléson-sur-Gruyères a funicular leads to Plan Francey (1,517 m), from where the cable car starts.

  • A train and then a cable car to get to the top is worth it. Enjoying the beautiful scenery while going up and enjoy it even more after reaching. Great for hiking and they do have a decent restaurant with some good food and drinks. Will go there again in the future
  • Splendid!
  • Wonderful breath taking views!
  • Love Moléson - the views are magnificent. The village is great but could be better. The shop could stock more convenience goods and products for day visitors (sandwiches or picnics) and the restaurant needs more of a vibe.
