    Saleve Cable Car

    1100m altitude...

    The "Genevans’ mountain", which peaks at 1,380 meters, is located in nearby France!

    Just a few steps from the Veyrier border, you may take the cable car which brings you to the top within five minutes.

    There, a kingdom for lovers of nature, fresh air, fauna and flora unfolds, as well as a unique panorama over Geneva, its quays and the lake, with the Jura mountains as a backdrop.

    Moreover, its southern side offers an incomparable view of the Alps and the Mont Blanc. However, the Mont Salève is not only a paradise for strollers.

    It is a favorite venue for climbers, mountain bikers, paragliders, delta wingers and, in winter, cross-country skiers.

    Several roads also lead to the Salève.

    Saleve Cable Car
    May-September: 9.30am-7pm/8pm
    April & Oct: 9.30am-6pm (except MON)
