Hi, the maennlichen brochure describes an 'all in one family pass' for all travel on Grindelwald mannlichen wengen gondola & aerial cableway for chf99. Do you know how long this pass is valid for, 1 day, 1 week? We may take a couple of trips on this route over 2 or 3 days so this pass may be worth it, even with our half fare card.

Hi debflint!

I think you're referring to this Männlichen all in one family card, right? That's a new option. It seems to be valid for one day only, as it's for sale up to 12h30 each day. But I'm not sure, and you can best contact the Männlichen cable car company. If you have an answer, we would very much appreciate it if you'd want to post it here, so we can all learn about this card's features.

If it's valid for one day, it strongly depends on the exact trips you want to make whether this is worth it. It also depends on your travel party and whether there are children older than 15 years old. Another factor influencing the outcome is whether you planned to buy anything in the restaurant at the top, as the Männlichen family card also includes a CHF 20 voucher.

An example: in case you're with two adults and two children no older than 15, you'd have to make two full return trips from either Grindelwald or Wengen in order for the Männlichen family card to be cheaper than what you'd pay just with the Swiss Half Fare Card. After all, children up to and inluding 15 year old travel for free anyway with the free Swiss Family Card, and adults pay only 50%. Just to give an idea of costs:

  • a return Grindelwald-Männlichen for an adult costs CHF 29 with a Swiss Half Fare Card
  • a return trip Wengen-Grindelwald for an adult costs CHF 22 with a Swiss Half Fare Card
  • so two adults would together pay CHF 102 for making both return trips with a Swiss Half Fare Card, and children travel for free
  • the Männlichen all in one family card for two adults and two children costs CHF 99 with a Swiss Half Fare Card.

Thanks, yes you are correct, the all in one family pass is only valid for 1 day, until 5.30pm. The prices seem to be higher, a return from wengen to grindelward, via mannlichen is CHF 55 with the half fare card so for 2 adults the all in one family pass works better, plus you get CHF20 voucher for the mannlichen restaurant & free crazy golf in wengen.
