Comfortable modern narrow-gauge electric railway provides transport to summit of Puy-de-Dome for great views. Replaces the motor road that had in turn replaced a former steam railway. Ample parking at lower station and good facilities at summit.

A good way to reach the Puy de Dôme for the less fit visitors! The train offers great views on the journey. For an extra couple of euros you can purchase the return ticket or you can walk down, as we did. If you do...More

We were lucky with weather and enjoyed the train ride up to the summit of the Puy-de-Dôme. The views from the top were spectacular and as it was off-season, there weren't too many other visitors there.

You can walk up or take this train. Which i would recommend and if you must you can walk down again. Modern, clean and with beautiful views. Reasonably priced too. And free parking!

This site has recently become a designated UNESCO and I can understand why. The area is full of dormant volcanoes and incredible views. You can take the Panoramic Train up and down for a fee, or hike one or both directions for free. Highly recommend...More

We arrived without pre-purchased tickets, waited about 1 minute in a queue to buy tickets, got a train in 5 minutes, got a great seat by the window and enjoyed a wonderful view on the way up! Even the kids were quiet! We were glad...More

Some of us could have walked to the top but one of us would have really struggled. This way there was very little effort and who doesn't like a slow train ride up the side of a volcano? Once at the top the view is...More

A comfortable and relatively quick way to reach the summit of the Puy de Dôme. Lovely view of several volcanoes to the left of the train when ascending.
