“Wonderful landscape”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Great view! Be prepared to walk up the hill to enjoy the nature. On the top you can see Grenoble and the mountains around the city.

“Bastille, Grenoble”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Riding the telepherique up to the Bastille is a must (hold tight and keep your eyes shut if you don't like heights). Grenoble is one of the flattest cities in France and is surrounded by mountains. The view from the cable car across the city is astonishing. The bastille is an interesting Napoleonic monument with fantastic views of the city and mountains. Plenty of food available - this is France - and areas to sit, There's an interesting-looking little museum and lots of parcours runners practicing their moves!

“View above Grenoble”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

I walk up the Bastille almost daily - it is a wonderful escape from the bustle and noise of the city and just minutes from any part of the city. Lovely walking trails lead you right to the top with super views of the city and surround mountain ranges. Bring water on a hot day, there are no water fountains until you get to the top! If you are too tired to walk down, take the 'Bubbles' - gives a whole other perspective on the city and river on your way down. Kids love it too!

Loved this place from the start. Walked further up to Mt. Rachais. Incredible view and landscape. Will definately return with my family.
