Taking the funicular to the mountain was very easy and cheap (11 euro per person back and forth, while it is free if you have a Geneva card). Comfortable free parking. Amazing views open just a few meters off the ground, but certainly the top...More

If you don't have much time, you can just take the cable car to the top and see Geneva, day or night. However, I think it is highly recommended to take one hour or two to take the trails.

We spent a night on the top of it. It was great. Only us, nobody around. Just the stars above and the Geneve below. You can even light a fire if want to.

Unfortunately a bit difficult to reach it without a car : even though many buses drop you at the French border there are no direct connections to the telepherique itself. A free shuttle exists but needs to be booked and not available on sundays. More...More
