Great simple fun. My 3.5 year olds managed to hike up the royal trail. Views are great too and we can see and hear the cows grazing in the valley.

This is the longest cableway in Europe, and arguably the best. Insane views across Grindelwald to the Eiger and First. 30 minute journey. If you have a half fare card it costs just 15CHF so good value also. Many hiking routes from the top also.

Enjoyed the ride up to Maennlichen. Amazing views of the mountains, waterfalls valley below and Wengen. The views at the top are awesome and you can connect to another cable car to take you down to Grindlewald if you wish.

Lovely cable car ride, we did it four or five times. Gluhwein at the top in the sunshine is magical. Worth doing even if not skiers.

We arrived on Mannlichen via Wengen, but after having lunch and dong the Royal Walk, we returned to Grindelwald on the little gondolas. I like these little 'bubble" style gondolas, there is no waiting and you can get one to yourself. Hubby and I were...More

My colleagues were heading up the mountain to ski so I decided to accompany them for the views. I didn't do any research (I was assured my 'resident ' pass would suffice as a ticket) so jumped on the train and headed up. This information...More

Have been here several times, there are several options of where you can eat here. Self-service in main building, restaurant service or fast food hut. Have always gone for first option as great choice of food, incl. good salad bar.
