Time and time again we return to the wonderful carless village of Wengen when we need a break from the ills of the world. We love the pace of the town and the gateway to the unsurpassed Swiss Alps that cableways like Mannlichen provide. Buy...More

We enjoyed the ride both up and down. Smooth ride and friendly staff both at the cashier and in the car itself. A must do when in Wengen.

The cable car was across the street from my hotel. We took it to the top, which is not visible from below. It was a smooth fairly short ride to the top, which was much higher than it looked from the street. The first time,...More

The ride up this cable car is pretty scary to me. Didn't expect it to climb so far up and so steep too. The view up at Manila so beautiful especially the weather was cloudless. Definitely worth the ride when the weather is good.

In winter a must if you want to avoid a train to Kleine Scheidegg and in the summer the cable car takes you to Männlichen from where it is a very nice (and could be crowded) panorama way to Kleine Scheidegg.

Not a challenging hike but views are spectacular. Half price with the Swiss family pass. Can be very busy. Those with mobility issues should just take the train to Kleine Schidig.

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.

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
