Take the cable car/Gondola to the top to get some great views of Grenoble. Reasonable price at Euro 7.50 return.

If you find yourself in Grenoble then this is a must place to visit. The cost is very reasonable. The car itself is good although can be a little cramped and not ideal for tall people so duck when entering and leaving the cable car. Great views from the top. Well worth it. If you are feeling energetic you can... More

Great view! Be prepared to walk up the hill to enjoy the nature. On the top you can see Grenoble and the mountains around the city.

Riding the telepherique up to the Bastille is a must (hold tight and keep your eyes shut if you don't like heights). Grenoble is one of the flattest cities in France and is surrounded by mountains. The view from the cable car across the city is astonishing. The bastille is an interesting Napoleonic monument with fantastic views of the city... More

I walk up the Bastille almost daily - it is a wonderful escape from the bustle and noise of the city and just minutes from any part of the city. Lovely walking trails lead you right to the top with super views of the city and surround mountain ranges. Bring water on a hot day, there are no water fountains... More

Loved this place from the start. Walked further up to Mt. Rachais. Incredible view and landscape. Will definately return with my family.

The top attraction in Grenoble is for sure the Bastille. We reached there on foot, living a wonderful experience among the natural landscape; unfortunately the weather 2 hours later was rainy so we decided to come down with the bubble lift and of course we didn’t regret it. We were really excited by the spectacular view. Surrounded by snowy mountains,... More

Enjoyed both a tour and dinner there during a recent business trip. The views are stunning, the food very good, and the service was prompt and efficient.
