La Coudre - Chaumont funicular

"When the brightly coloured red and blue wagon arrived at La Coudre station, Lucas and Jonas rushed inside, impatient to climb what’s called the mountain of the Neuchâtelois. With our backs to the slope, we climbed quickly in amongst splendid Autumn coloured trees and soon saw the blue water of the lake of Neuchâtel and a few roofs of the town. The slope is steep and we climbed quickly; the children, with their noses glued to the panoramic window, drank in this beautiful landscape opening in front of us. In ten minutes, we reached the top, amazed by the view of the Trois-Lacs and the slightly misty alps."
