Funicular

(11 Wows)

Everyone in Fribourg knows the funicular as it is one of the town‘s curiosities. The line was opened in 1899 and links the town centre to the Basse-Ville (the lower area of the town). The Fribourg funicular is a listed historical monument and unique in Europe. It is actually the only one to run on waste water from the town, which it uses thanks to a system of counterweights. The creaking and clattering of the rack of the hundred-year old machine is obviously worth seeing, especially as it will take you deep into the soul of the town. The funicular was – and still is – the link between the ‘Basse-Ville’ and the centre of Fribourg. History and modernity
