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.

If you stay in Wengen, take this cable car up and at least do the Panorama hike to Kleine Scheidegg. It really is a fantastic hike and relatively easy. If you are fit, you can hike further down to Alpiglen or Grindelward once reaching Kleine...More

The aerial cableway is an easy way to get from downtown Wengen to Mannlichen for beautiful views of the alps. Trams depart every 20 minutes in the summer. Mannlichen offers a very large wooden cow for children to play in with a slide that forms...More

The first trip up in summer is at 8:10, then every 20 minutes. It's empty for the first hour or so. There are wonderful views with a good chance of seeing chamois under the car.

Took the tram from Wengen up to Mannlichen. Unfortunately we missed the departure and had to wait another 20 minutes before boarding. The ride is quite expensive but operates smoothly and places you in an area with remarkable walking trails and magnificent vistas.

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
