Plein Ciel panoramic lift

Plein Ciel panoramic lift

Admire sweeping views of the Riviera and surrounding area from the panoramic platform atop the Plein Ciel tower at the summit of Mont Pèlerin.

The Plein Ciel lift whisks visitors up 65 metres above the ground to the top of the telecom tower on Mont-Pèlerin (altitude: 1080 metres), where they can enjoy superb 360° panoramic views. Open from Easter to November, the viewing platform reveals sweeping views encompassing Lake Geneva, the Alps, and the vineyards. It’s a real change of scenery not far from town for those prepared to make a little effort! The tower is a 30-minute walk from the car park and a one-and-a-half-hour walk from Vevey-Mont-Pèlerin funicular station.

WARNING ! The site will be closed due to works from September 13, 2019. Reopening Spring 2020.
