The Monte Brè Cable Car


Appreciate the splendor of Monte Rosa, the Bernese and Vallese Alps as seen from the top of Switzerland's sunniest mountain.

The Monte Brè Cable Car opened in 1908. It was intended as a means of offering the inhabitants of Lugano a summer village where they could enjoy the fresh air, pleasant walks and spectacular views.

A journey of just a few minutes from the centre of Lugano takes you to the unspoiled natural environment of Monte Brè where you can discover breathtaking landscapes, hikes or mountain bike treks, areas of natural interest, artistic and cultural locations, traditional villages, culinary delights, and more.

From Sunday 12 December, the new timetable for the Monte Brè funicular will come into force.
