It's one of the things you must do, it's a lot of fun, can get extremely crowded. But it's worth it.

Access to the slopes and beautiful views of the north face of the Eiger We got a 5 day pass and all transport in the area was free after that. Certain times IE around 9am very busy with skiers

Given where it is, this is probably the only effective way to get up to Mannlichen from Wengen, but we had a couple of 15+ minute queues even in a quiet week first thing in the morning.

Probably better to relax and take the train.

We were staying in Wengen in September 2013 and this Ariel Cableway was yards from our hotel which was very handy for us and we also had the "Jungfrau 6 day pass" which meant it was free to use this cableway all week during our stay.
Its a large cablecar which can hold over 20 people at least and it only takes approx.5 minutes to get to the top of Mannlichin Mountain but on the way up,you get a brilliant birds eye views of Wengen and the valley of Lauterbrunnen down below in the valley.
Once you arrive on top of Mannlichen you can either turn left and make your way up to the pinnacle of Mannlichen which is a small ridge where you can view the whole area 360 degrees which is well worth it or turn right and make your way to the Mannlichen Restaurant for a meal or head towards the trail which takes you on a downward gradient to Kleine Schiedegg.
The cableway runs every half hour during the season from Wengen up to Mannlichen and last journey down to Wengen from the top of Mannlichen is at 5.30pm so remember to get back on time otherwise you will have a long walk down the mountain.
