Visiting friends they suggested a trip to the top of the railway, wow it blew my mind. It’s so steep and magnificent views from the top. Well worth the trip.

Get the cable car to top and experience some of the most breath taking views for miles around. We were lucky enough to see paragliders setting off. The cafe at the top serves good food at reasonable prices.
