This cable car provided great views of the Grindelwald valley. The little gondolas give you privacy to enjoy the ride up to Mannlichen. They also pass out some free Ricola candies at the bottom - nice touch if you want to practice some yodelling on the at up. Also open up the windows of the gondola and listen for the... More

We planned going to Jungfraujoch from Grindelwald, via cable car to Mannlichen, and then leisure walking to Kleine Scheidegg. E.Paul (a super friendly staff) in the cable car station provided all the useful information to us including live webcam to show the top of Europe. We are so lucky to meet such a nice staff in Swiss.

This is a lovely cable car ride up from Grindelwald Grund to the top of Mannlichen, which gives you breathtaking views of the Jungfrau, Grindelwald valley and Shynigge Platte. The gondolas are small, so you can ride with your group and not be crammed in with lots of other people, as happens on some bigger cable cars. You can also... More

One of those cablecars that are amazing just for taking them, not so much for the speed, but for the view and the experience!

This is the hike to take in central Switzerland. From the valley floor at Lauterbrunnen take the train up to the village of Wengen. In Wengen take the cable car up to Mannlichen and then take the panoramic walk with gradual downward path to Kleine Scheidegg. ( from there take the train back down to Wengen). The views of the...

Great trip up the Gondol to Mannlichen. If you want a hike that is not too hard. Take the Gondol up and walk back down to Grindelwald.

We took the gondolo up to Maennlichen, and then hiked to Kleinne Scheidegg on our way to Jungraujoch. The ride up provides lovely views of Grindelwald village, and the hike is an absolute pleasure on a summer day.

The car park at Grindelwald was practically deserted when I arrived on foot from Kleine Scheidegg. It was nice to take the weight off my feet and appreciate some more scenery. The gondola cars aren't a luxurious place to spend half an hour, of course, but the gondola itself is very interesting and the views, of course, are spectacular.

This is a great ride that gives you a good sense of Grindelwald and you can make your own judgement on where you'd like to spend more time at in Grindelwald. Great walks await at Männlichen, though you are likely to be more successful there in full summer. In early summer there will still be lots of snow and the... More
