Long weekend

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 amazed at how much these did move and rock and roll quite a bit, particularly...

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 proved incorrect and apparently I needed a ticket. The cost of this (just to ride... 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.

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!

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...
