The cable car rides all of the place which gives you access to all sorts of different areas. Then there are a bunch of different walking paths throughout the mountains to be able to view the ranges from many different angles.

Cable car up to First, then lots of walking tracks. The most popular one seems to be to Bachalpsee, but if you have time, go up Faulhorn, with its hotel and the top. Amazing views all over.

We went up to First by gondola and walked to Bachalpsee. Great walk and fabulous views. A big highlight of our trip to Grindelwald.

One of the best location I have ever visited. The views in the top are charming and breathtaking. Just a tip, plan to go when the weather is clear since most of the activities will be suspended if there is rain.

You can either use your feet o get up here in a good walk, or you can take the cable-car. Both ways are good. Up here you can hae a drink or meal and the take further hikes. Worth to spend a nice day here

Went to First on a sunny day in August. It is a very nice place for hiking in the summer. The view at the top is really worth a visit. You can sit or lie down in a restaurant and just enjoy the fantastic mountain view.

A beautiful trip to the top of a very safe feeling cable car. My wife is fearful of heights but the enclosed cars made it comfortable for her. Had lunch at the top and simply enjoyed the views.

If you are in Grindelwald on a sunny day, this has to be a 'must'. The cable car ride in itself is amazing, and the views at the top are world-class. If you have time, then take the path to Bachalpsee - and don't forget your camera! On the way back down in the cable car, get off at Bort... More

I brought my Girl Scout troop here for an adventure day and it was great! My advise is to get here early as the line up was over 1 hour wait. Come early, visit the local cows scattered around with their lovely bells, take some photos of the breathtaking views then get in line and enjoy every minute going down.... More
