The Capucin funicular

Inaugurated in 1898 in the Puy-de-Dôme department, the Capucin funicular was the first electric funicular to be built in France! It is also listed as a Historic Monument.

Discover the Capucin funicular

In the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France, you'll have the chance to climb aboard the oldest electric funicular in France! Recognisable by its deep green colour and Belle-Epoque style, the Capucin funicular takes you up to 1245m to the Salon du Capucin. Once there, there are several options open to you:
  • Go hiking on the surrounding paths
  • Visit the Sylvatorium du Capucin, a forest trail designed to awaken your senses
  • Enjoy the thrills of the Mont-Dore Aventures tree-climbing park.
📍 Rue René Cassin, 63240 Mont-Dore
⏰ The Capucin funicular is open from 1 May to 3 November 2024
