The Mont-Blanc tramway (TMB), France's highest railway line

The Mont-Blanc tramway (TMB), France's highest railway line

The Mont-Blanc tramway is the highest railway line in France, and one of the last three rack-and-pinion trains. It links the Saint-Gervais-les-Bains station (580 m above sea level) to the Bionnassay glacier (the "Nid d'Aigle" station at 2372 m above sea level) in summer, offering majestic scenery lovers a breathtaking panorama.

From here, the most experienced mountaineers can access the Tête Rousse and Goûter refuges to tackle the ascent of Mont-Blanc. In winter, the Mont-Blanc tramway provides access to the Prarion/Bellevue ski area (altitude 1800 m).
