The town of Sierre is linked to the Crans-Montana Haut-Plateau (Montana-Gare) by an ultra-modern funicular.
The route, which is just over 4km long with a height gain of 927 metres, takes 12 minutes, at a speed of 8 m/second. This hundred-year-old route is the longest in Europe.
To get to the funicular from the railway station in Sierre/Siders, follow the red line on the pavement (around 5 minutes) or take the special shuttle bus.

Bike lovers: note that your bike transport is free in the funicular! You can also enjoy combined offers with the cable cars, thanks to the "Mobility Bike Pass".
