As someone who is scared of heights I had to meet this head on. Thankfully there were no queues so I didn't have time to change my mind. At 7 euros for a return I couldn't even claim it was too expensive. I am so glad I did it, the views were amazing, we had a pod to ourselves on... More

The views of Grenoble from the Bastille are breathtaking. We recommend taking the cable car up and walking down.

We took the Téléphérique to Grenoble-Bastille - and were rewarded with the most incredible panoramic views of the city of Grenoble and surrounding mountains! Had a meal in the restaurant which also has the same amazing views from a shady terrace. Good food - reasonable prices - good service.

Your on top of the world here at the Bastille!! If you are traveling with children, they have put in an extensive zip line and course here. Although, I do have mixed feelings about this relic being scaled on and zip lined down by hundreds of people everyday, everyone was having fun.

Take the quick cable car up to the Bastille. It is a great view from up here of Grenoble. The contrast of the old parts of town with the tram line is quite unique. There is a great little ropes course up there for kids as well. Plenty of history and plenty of steps to get to the more interesting... More

We took the cable car ride up and was really good looking down on Grenoble, it cost €7 and worth every cent. The views from the top looking over Grenoble are fantastic, we stayed at the top for about an hour taking it all in. Well worth the trip, Do it

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
