Funiculaire Les Avants - Sonloup

Funicular Les Avants - Sonloup

Built in 1910 and recently renovated, the Les Avants-Sonloup ‘funi’ still boasts its original coaches. A real curiosity!

In the twentieth century, the Les Avants region was a well-regarded winter resort. The funicular railway is still used to access the sledge slopes in winter – and has also become a popular way to reach hiking trails in the summer. Its distinctive, historic red coaches gleam amid the pastoral landscape of Les Avants as a timeless reminder of Swiss excellence in mountain transport.
