A call for proposals for the development of the Territet - Mont-Fleuri funicular railway

Tha Commune of Montreux is launching a competition for proposals in order to generate ideas for the development of the Territet – Mont-Fleuri funicular railway, which today lies abandoned.  With its tunnel below and its station above, the line has a distinctive infrastructure, creating the possibility of an original future use.

The Territet – Mont-Fleuri funicular was created between 1909 and 1910.  It is 430 metres long, including 120 metres of tunnel.  Its starting point is at 392 metres and rises to an altitude of 557 metres.  In late January 2020, the communal Council shared the conclusions of the Municipality on the future of the line, deciding that reactivating it as public transport was not a viable option.

In order to identify achievable ideas to develop and maintain all or part of the line’s infrastructure, the municipality of Montreux is launching a call for proposals.  Proposals can have any focus, whether that be tourism, or one that is cultural, sporting, societal or economic.  Returning the infrastructure to its original use is not an option.
