High on Books

Europe’s highest bookstore opened last summer on Mount Blanc at an altitude of 3,466 meters. The Feltrinelli bookshop is situated inside the Punta Helbronner station on the third floor of the Skyway Monte Biancodi Funivie Montebianco .

The stunning shop has a limited selection of titles for a total of 1726 books, divided into thematic content: from the high-altitude bestsellers to illustrated mountain and photographic books, from those dedicated to Val d’Aosta itineraries to mountain fiction, from regional food and wine books to children’s books.

“Skyway Monte Bianco is not just a cable car, it is an idea – explains Federica Bieller, President of Funivie Monte Bianco Spa -. That of bringing man closer to the mountains and the sky, that of broadening horizons and overcoming borders. Thanks to the opening of la Feltrinelli 3466 our technological cable car enhances even more the rise making it a cultural trip. The mountain culture to be valued, the words of the authors who loved and challenged it, the Mont Blanc as a scenario to fantasize “.
