Centrally located in the village and good regular transport up to the top of the mountains. We used this during the end of the ski season to access the ski slopes. The carriages are quite large and didn't feel claustrophobic at all. The barriers were...More

Comes every 15min and takes 6 to run up and down mountains It does get VERY busy during ski season so be ready to get there ahead of leaving time so you don't have to be squashed in the middle

I spent a week skiing in Wengen with friends. We used this cable car frequently. It is centrally located. The queues moved reasonably well. It was packed at peak times but that is to be expected.

Great views as you travel. Be aware at peak times they do run to capacity (particularly skiers!) and it can be a crush especially for younger children.

We skied down to it every morning. Holds 80 people and runs when full. We prefer to getting the train at our start of day

Travelling up from Wengen there is a choice of train or cable car .Be aware both ski areas interconnect so really down to personal preference. The train is slower but you do get a seat

pretty standard in honesty. If you go at peak times it is absolutely rammed full of people with very little room to move, but it does the job taking you to Mannlichen better than anything else. Brilliant!

Modern cableway, fast and safe. Beautiful panorama of the valley and Eiger, Monch, Wengen. The best and quick way to reach the ski resort of Mannlichen, considering that the trains are beautiful but not fast

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.
We will visit Wengen on May 1-5. Would you please tell me that we can take cable car to Mannlichen?

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
