Mountain cableways

Whether you opt to glide up to Männlichen on the gondola cableway from Grindelwald or on the aerial cableway from Wengen, both journeys are packed with thrills and stunning scenery. The top stations are located close to the Männlichen Mountain Guest House.

Grindelwald-Männlichen Gondola Cableway

The bright red gondola cabins of the Grindelwald-Männlichen Gondola Cableway are an unmistakable sight as they glide by. At over six kilometres' length, the world's longest aerial gondola opened in 1978 and has since transported countless locals and visitors. Climbing 1280 metres in around 30 minutes, it transports you effortlessly to the popular Männlichen excursion destination. Soak up the sensational views of the Eiger North Face, Wetterhorn, Mittelhorn, Rosenhorn and Schreckhorn peaks.

Wengen-Männlichen Aerial Cableway

Two spacious 75-passenger cabins transport you in comfort from Wengen to Männlichen. It takes just under five minutes to climb the 947 metres to Männlichen – precious time you can invest in admiring one of the world's most scenic mountain vistas. With a little luck, you might even see the thundering waters of the Staubbach Falls. Since it first opened in 1954, the Wengen-Männlichen Aerial Cableway has carried locals and visitors from all over the world year in, year out.
Since 2018, you can even ride on our open-air balcony in summer.
