Moléson cable car
The cable car connects Plan-Francey (1520 m) to the Moléson restaurant at 1978 m. It was built in 1964 and renovated in 2011. It has a single 40m high pylon and the maximum height to the ground is 110m.
Moléson is the mythical mountain of the Gruyère at 2002 m but not the highest of the canton of Fribourg which is the Vanil Noir at 2389 m. At the arrival of the cable car there is a restaurant and a belvedere offering a very nice 360 degree view.
