I climbed the Bastille twice during my visit. Once when it was sunny and once when it was overcast. If you are thinking about going up and are worried about the weather, just do it. Watching the clouds roll around from up there was spectacular. Overall, the view is amazing. You can see the mountains and all of the city.... More

A great tourist attraction giving undoubtedly the best views of Grenoble city, amazing on a clear day, you can even make out Mont Blanc in the distance. A good restaurant there also, great for a coffee or lunch or dinner. The ride up and down in the telepherique if fun but if you're feeling energetic you can walk / run... More

We decided to walk up the Bastille from the Musee acheologique and return via jar din des Dauphins and Porte de France. It was a great walk and the views were stunning. The fort de la Bastille is amazing and a tribute to its builders.

If you're in Grenoble, hiking to the Bastille is just part of the package deal. Not visiting the Bastille is like skipping the Eiffel Tower in Paris—it just must be done. Depending the time and day, the trail can be pretty busy, but it doesn't seem too crowded. Just go at your own pace and enjoy the scenery. From the... More

I recommend not taking the cable car, not because it is bad, but because there is alot that you will miss out on. There are multiple paths to get up the Bastille and each one has a different scenery, and viewing points of the city. At the top there are a few vending machines and a museum with a gift... More

Elwe came to grenoble on dec/2014 and there is almost no snow. From the Bastille you can see all the white tops of the mountains and the view is amazing. Just €7,00 return tickets for the bubble and I think the view from the the top is really worth.
