You can reach the village of Bré by a wonderful path through the woods. It has kept intact its characteristic of ancient rural village and has be embellished with numerous artworks. You will find the frescoes by Joseph Birò in the Church of San Fedele and the Schmid Museum. It is in his house and it was his wish to leave it together with all his works to his Municipality of adoption.
Mountain bikes are available for hire near the cable car station at the summit, providing an opportunity to explore Monte Brè’s numerous points of interest with pedal power.
The funicular is running from March to December.
