I've never done anything like this before. It's a beautiful ride and once you are at the top, it has truly amazing views. The tram was full of mountain bikes and excited riders. It was a very fun trip up the mountain.

Amazing ride up the steep hill with great views (on a clear day, we had clouds) once you climb the lookout tower (1 CHF). Playground and cafe on the top of the hill.
