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

We had a marvelous trip that included a step in Wengen and Klein Schdregg. We stopped for chocolate and sat with an incredible view of the Eiger and Jungfrau. People are helpful and nice, just beware of a crossing to the restaurant as its a passage for skiers

This is the main method of getting to the Mannlichen ski field each day. A 5 minute trip with up to 80 persons. It's smooth efficient. You can see the mountain goats (Chinois) near the top if you keep a sharp eye out. The view down the valley is amazing on a clear day.

We are staying in Wengen. Access to the cable car is so easy. Ascent to Mannlichen is so quick. The views are great, when the snow eases off. Then on to Grindelwald in the gondolas. 20 - 30 minutes. Fabulous views. It's a 'must do'!

We used this cableway several times during our visit to Wengen. This is a beautiful area and a great way to experience it. From the top of Mannlichen we could clearly see Wengen and the Lauterbrunnen Valley below; the Jungfrau, Eiger, and Schilthorn peaks; and the cable to Grindelwald and view of that city were also right there.

The views from this cable car from Wengen to Manlichen are superb. Only takes about ten minutes but well worthwhile.
