The valley station of the cable car is only a few steps from the center of Wengen. The spectacular ride climbs over 1000 meters to the 2230-meter Männlichen. The Männlichen also can be reached from Grindelwald Grund by Europe’s gondola train.
The Wispile gondola train takes you to an elevation of 1911 meters. In summer the gondola ride takes you to a petting zoo, a tree adventure park, a Trottinett ride, hikes to Lake Lauen or to Gsteig, paragliding, a “Fairytale Uncle”, a cheese trail including a visit to a dairy farm and a Silentium Place where you can reflect in silence.
In 1939, the first cable car between Champéry and Planachaux was built by "Téléphérique Champéry-Planachaux AG", and it was not replaced until 1987 by a new construction.
