The trip up to the mountain with the train was spectacular. It was not too long (20 min), but what a climb! And the scenery while climbing up is beautiful! While the ticket is not cheap (as it is in Switzerland), but it's worth it. Once up there, there are several hiking track that you can take, but with young... More

There is a small collection of marmot's at this point, which i think has been done just to create another tourist attraction. Nothing special.

We were expecting to see marmots in their natural habita and not fenced off in the cages.. This is a far cry from paradise.. That said, marmots can be easily spotted, they are very interactive and fun to watch..

This is just a tiny enclosure with a few marmots. We saw three when we visited on Aug 29. The whole area is very scenic and definitely worth a visit

These cute furry animals are fun to watch and definitely a good thing to see when up at Rochers-de-Naye.

Only a couple of Marmots out when we visited. The animals are cute but do not stick your fingers inside the fence line. They will eat veggies from your hand but be careful

We went to see the marmots today, but none were visible in their park areas. It was a beautiful day, and we were there in late morning. Maybe they only come out late in the day? I was quite disappointed. The expo wasn't bad, but the signage was confusing and it took us a long time to find it. The... More

Waiters very kind and helpful if only having a coffee or more. Language no barrier and euros no problem. Welcomed back like fiends on 2nd visit. Took care of my mum who really enjoyed soup and plate of day!

This is a few pens and an exhibition. I wouldn't rate it as a day out; it just happens to be up by Rochers-de-Naye station so worth walking past.

The marmots of Rochers de Naye are rather cute indeed - there is one pen close to the station if you can't walk too far, and others a little further on. Exhibition inside with all you could ever want to know (and more!) about marmots
