“Enjoy the walk, because there's not a lot up there!”
Review of Bastille

Bastille
Ranked #2 of 81 things to do in Grenoble
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 31, 2014

The winding pathways up & down the Bastille are a joy to walk (or jog in my younger days!) you can easily spend a morning ambling around them, but there's not a lot to do at the Bastille itself; there's a restaurant which is expensive, but the views are spectacular. And sometimes a bit of a display / exhibition.

Take a camera and enjoy the fresh air.

If you are in Grenoble , you have to be at the Bastille from where you get the magnificient view of the city and especially River Siene flowing on 1 side and suddenly you will realize that the city is so pretty . Ideal for having small get togethers with friends , if you are a fitness freak , you can walk all the way upto the top , the cable car is also an option for getting nice clicks . If you walk all the way upto the top you can have views from different strategic locations on the way . This is a must do for anyone visiting Grenoble .

The cable cars and restaurant were closed on my visit but I decided to walk up the steep steps and ramps to the top. Well worth the effort for the fantastic views.

The Bastille offers amazing view of Grenoble and the surrounding area! There is a restaurant and bar at the top ( which is quite expensive) but it definitely worth getting drink to admire the view. Alongside the restaurant there is a small museum and paths to follow which take you around the Bastille. There are also caves you can explore if you follow a path back towards the mountain. The cable ride to and from the Bastille is an enjoyment in its self!

The views of Grenoble are fantastic. Other than that, there is not much to recommend the Bastille and the gondola ride.
The gondolas themselves are very hot and stuffy on a summer day. Worth the ride for the views on the way up if you're not too afraid of heights. One member of our party had to walk back down as she was nearly sick on the way up.
As I said, the views from the top are fantastic and worth the visit, but there is not much else to see or do when you get there.
