Intro

A singular panoramic view awaits: over the Swiss and French Alps from Eiger to Mont-Blanc and further to Lake Geneva.

The picturesque ride goes along the shores of Lake Geneva before rising up into the fresh mountain air. Climbing more than 1,600 meters in altitude, the railway passes fields, villages and forests. With increasing altitude, the narrow track along the slope offers ever-more spectacular views over Lake Geneva and the surrounding mountains.

Once at the top, a range of leisure activities for all ages await: the Alpine garden of La Rambertia boasts an impressive collection of over 1,000 Alpine plants and there are various hiking trails just waiting to be discovered.

The train up the Rochers-de-Naye runs all year round. In December, Father Christmas personally lives atop the 2,042-meter mountain.
