Bahn was built between the two World Wars, at
the begining of the ski activity, to access the
Weissfluhjoch area which is one of the best area
in Switzerland for skiing. Unfortunately in summer,
without the snow, the Weissfluhjoch area is one
the most horrible area I have ever seen in Switzerland!
Compare to the ground of the moon, I really prefer...
Anyway, Parsenn Bahn is one of the longest funicular
of Switzerland, length 4048 meters but with two
sections. The fisrt section is steeper (47,7 %)
than the second one (31 %).
Each of the four big cars is composed of two separated
half cars with three compartments each.
The first section has been renovated with two
new cars in December 2002.
