Bastille And The Cable Car - Review

To break it down in simple terms, the Bastille is a fortress that overlooks Grenoble and the River Isere and the cable car that rises 264 metres from the river to the fortress is one fantastic way to get up there. This nineteen-century fort was a critical political and military focus point. Its history is fascinating enough but today it’s a tourist favourite – visitors all camera toting for the magnificent views over the tiny Alpine city. On a clear day, you can even see Mont Blanc 113 kilometres off. The cable car trip itself is pretty cool – little transparent bubbles take you up and down. The cable car is a city landmark in it’s own way; it’s as big a tourist draw as the Bastille itself, and together the attractions draw roughly 600,000 tourists every year. Two major restaurants cater to all these hungry stomachs.

Some of the other activities you can look into include:

  • The Acrobastille:Speleobox (a 120 metre 3D maze), Le Grand Fosse (crossing the for with a zip line), Via Acrobatica, and the Air Bastille (a 300 metre zipline). EUR 15.
  • The Mandarin Caves – an underground cave system that gives you much greater insight into the defence of the place. Takes 30 minutes .
  • Mount Jalla – find the National Memorial to Troops, about a 30 minute walk up hill from the Bastille.
  • TheVia Ferrata – an incredible rock-climb.
  • Museum of the Mountain Troops, an excellent multi-lingual audio-guided exhibit. EUR 3. Closed on Mondays.

  • Great views. Got a bit of adventure activities for anyone with those interests. Can get pretty hot during the summer. May be able to spot Mont Blanc from there on a good Sunny day. Tickets are 9 EUR. Cable car to go up is available or you can hike it up.

  • Went for a refreshing long walk up the mountain with many hairpin bends. The fort has cable car for going up too. Has a cafeteria and toilets and a fantastic view point. Many other attractions accessible from the park such as an old artificial tunnel and a monument for commemorating soldiers. The monument is another trek up to the very top. Views magnificent of Grenoble and the French alps. Many small paths leading into the greenery can be explored while going to the monument.

  • Fantastic views! Cable Car ride only takes a few mins and gets you around 80% up the mountain. About a 30 minute walk thereafter right to the very top including a walk through the caves where the French would escape the Germans back in WW2. Views were amazing! This is a must see in Grenoble.

  • We took the cable car up to the fort. And the view is amazing. We then walked up to the caves and the lower cave entrance is a pitch black tunnel with a very steep staircase. When we were there the staircase was wet and slippery. The higher entrance to the caves goes around the outside of the hill so it's a much easier path. It is worth a visit and the restaurant onsite is a great place for lunch but only opens at 12:00.

  • A historic place that takes you back in time. A beautiful view of the entire Grenoble city. I would recommend you to trek your way up to the top and take a cable car ride on your way down. That way, you can have the total experience.
