The Moléson (French: Le Moléson) (2,002 metres (6,568 ft)) is a mountain of the Swiss Prealps, overlooking the region of Gruyères in the canton of Fribourg. It lies at the northern end of the chain between Lake Geneva and the valley of the Sarine.

The summit of the mountain can be easily reached, a cable car station being located near the summit at 1,982 metres (6,503 ft) as well as a meteorological station. From the village of Moléson-sur-Gruyères a funicular leads to Plan Francey (1,517 metres (4,977 ft)), from where the cable car starts.

  • We went all the way up. Half way in the funicular Half way by cable car. Upstairs there was a lot of snow and there was a terrible wind. Despite this there were many brave people who skied in the snow

  • Enjoy the fresh air of the summit and its exceptional panorama from this uniquely centered mountain Plenty of activities for the family at the base village
  • Moleson Sur Gruyeres cablecar is one of the best tourist attractions in Switzerland.After visiting the Gruyeres Castle and village this should be next because it is very close. We did the cablecar to the top and if you go there after 18:10 the women get the ride for free! That is what we found out with our group. It was still light when we got up there,all the way to the top. Amazing scenery! The sunset was awesome. Definitely worth going up there... We enjoyed the trip. We had a warm drink up there and saw the highest point... Truly recommend it to all...
