The funicular Ligerz - Tessenberg - Bahn (Gléresse - Montagne de Diesse) in the centre of the wonderful site of Ligerz.
The Schafiser vineyard on the left and the Ligerzer vineyard on the right above the lake of Biel.

Why the Ligerz - Tessenberg funicular (LTB) in the issue #20 of Funimag ? There is a project to completely rebuild and renovate it. It was supposed to be effective in 2001, the project is in fact postponed to the beginning of 2002, before the Swiss National Exhibition Expo.02.

The project is to convert the funicular to an automatic mono-carriage lift. The construction will be made by Doppelmayr.
Have a look to the funicular today before it is transformed.

Swallows, involuntary symbol of the funicular !
They took up residence on the crane of the bottom station .
