We have both walked and taken the Téléférique, the 'bubble' cable car, up La Bastille and either way, the view is absolutely gorgeous. It is easier to orient yourself taking the cable car. There is a restaurant but it wasn't open when we were there. But the Musée des Troupes de Montagne was open and gave us a fascinating insight... More

If you want to have a over look of Grenoble please go up to the mountain either by cable car or your own car, the view is nice at night but there are no restaurant on the top.

The road till Bastille is really nice.Either you take the stairs or on the forest alley at the end you will have an amazing view of Grenoble and the beautiful surrounding mountains.Really have to climb it if you are in or near Grenoble.

A must-do for the visitor to Grenoble. You can drive up (single track) or walk up if energetic, or take the bubble cable car. Superb views from the top with informative explanations.

I was lucky enough to have a few days of really nice weather. Especially for February. I climbed the way up (and down) three times. Just to exercise and enjoy the view of the town. During weekend days the ways are really crowded. It is simple to continue the climb further up and to enjoy the view of Bastille from... More

Arriving on cable car gives direct access to viewing platform. Various possible activities include eating, wandering around the various parts of the fort, a museum nd a range of walks. Places to sit available. Good displays of history of the cable car.

The "Bastille" is not particularly interesting apart from the beautiful view on Grenoble. You can have a ride on the funicular, which offers you a spectacular descent over Grenoble, even if the ticket is overpriced. That's nice to have a walk on the many trekking routes starting and arriving at Bastille.

This is a fun afternoon activity. Almost half the city walks, runs, or bikes up here on the weekends. At the top there is a museum, cafe, and gift shop. For a better view and less people, keep going up to the memorial.

After a ride up the téléférique, the views from atop the Bastille are wonderful. You can get a great view of Grenoble and the surrounding alps with panels to discuss the history of the Bastille and the city. On a clear day you can see to Mont Blanc in the distance.
