The “Via Ferrata de la Bastille” is probably the most urban one. To get there, 15mn walking from the Grenoble train station, what else? A coffee before getting up the via?
It compose of 2 parts :
Part1 is the easiest, not so high, but will give you a bit of the vertigo feeling! Verticals, long traverse, beams, monkey bridge and a long Nepalese bridge. Cool!
Part 2 is wilder and requires stamina. Several more or less technical and physical variants. At the exit you'll be in the middle of one of the French prelude revolution scenery. Take care of the bayonets!!!
But Maybe you’d prefer enjoy a drink at the top of the Grenoble cable car above the end of the route. Anyway, it's a perfect opportunity to do something without the car from almost anywhere because you can come either by tram, bus, bike or train.Read more

Sure, there is a path getting down directly in the street at the bottom of the route and at the bar…
It's a little more difficult because the first part is already an effort. The start of this part 2 is quite steep and athletic, but for a short distance. What follows there is almost a walk in the sky.
You’ll still have to walk 160 ft up to the station. A long hike… 5 mn maybe!!
99% of the people we take are beginners, and they all do well. However if you want an easier Via Ferrata, you can choose the via ferrata of Roc de Cornillon.
