It snowed previous night so we had to cancel our trip to jungfrau, but then we decided to take this cableway in clouds. There is something beautiful and majestic when the gondola crosses all the clouds and you reach at the top! Worth every penny....More

Easy access to pistes at Mannlichen. Restaurant at the top is very good. Be aware can be busy at peak times. Runs every 15 mins.

With this cablecar, you can easily reach the Mannlichen skislopes nearby. It only takes a couple of minutes from the center of Wengen to go up. Regular service. In the morning and evening, the cablecar can be crowded.

Once at Wengen, there really is no other viable option to get back to Kleine Scheidegg or Mannlichen. This large gondola takes on a very steep cable to the top, on an busy days, gets packed. I am not a fan of Gondolas like this,...More

My wife and I took the cable-car from Wengen to the top of the mountain in one after-noon. The cable car was not packed- that was good for us, as we were able to have a full view over the area...and it was just beautiful!...More

This lift runs every 15 mins and gets you to the top in under five minutes. Even if it's busy it's quicker and easier than the train.

There's always room for 1 more. Think jubilee line but tighter. If you get here in peak time then be prepared to breathe in! Otherwise, it's a quick trip and the views are great. If you're lucky you may catch the sight of a mountain...More

I felt like a sardine in a can. Capacity was 80 persons and with everyone holding skis, it felt overcrowded. But it quickly and efficiently provides access to the ski runs.

Excellent and very quick link to the Männlichen ski area. 4 minutes journey time and runs every minute (and more frequently when it's busy). Covered on the area ski pass in winter and various passes in the summer.

Took this to go to Grindlewald. On the way back the weather turned and the walk in a blizzard with no signs and no help was harrowing to say the least. Security for visitors on these days needs to be improved

Berggasthaus is the restaurant at the top. If you have little ones, there are some playground things outside. Great views. Good, Swiss-German style cuisine. Clean public restrooms.
We will visit Wengen on May 1-5. Would you please tell me that we can take cable car to Mannlichen?

I am certain that the cable car runs year-round, as it services hikers as well as skiers. Be aware of the times when it stops running at the end of the day, however. It doesn't run in the evening, so make sure you leave... More
