One of Davos’ old funicular railways is to receive an upgrade for next season.

The upper section of the Parsennbahn, which carries visitors from the Höhenweg mid-station on Parsenn to the Weissfluhjoch will be replaced with a newer model.

The Parsenn funicular is one of the Swiss resort’s oldest lifts, the lower section having been installed in 1931 then extended to climb to the Weissfluhjoch ridge – a distance of 1100m.

Works to update the lift are being carried out through the summer, so this section above Höhenweg is now closed to summer visitors.
