Inaugurated on February 4, 1899, the funicular celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2024.
Transports publics fribourgeois (TPF) will be organizing several events throughout the year to mark the occasion. The program begins with guided tours on Sunday, February 4, 2024.
In early spring, an exhibition retracing the history of the funicular and explaining how it works will be set up near its top station (St-Pierre). It will be on display until the end of the year.
Funicular fans are invited to share their best photos or videos of the centenary or the 2024 festivities on Facebook and Instagram, using the hashtag #funi125. On the 4th of each month, a jury will select the most beautiful photo of the month. The winner will be awarded exclusive gifts featuring the funicular. In December 2024, a draw will award one grand prize winner with a travel voucher worth CHF 300.
