Good ride in cable car with lots of walking paths suitable for all levels of experience. Restaurant at top is very good but a bit pricey......but they have to carry it all up to the top of the mountain! If you want the quick way down you can go on the zip line!!

Ideal to get to walking & climbing areas. Frequent cars through the day. Very scenic trip. Best priced with discount cards

We took the first fun package - what a fantastic day!!! We took the cable car from Grindelwald to First. Then we took the first flight, all four of us together, what fun!!! Then the trottibikes to the bottom of the mountain, exhilarating fun for all the family xxx I couldn't recommend it more x

Didn't go all the way up to First on the cable car as the original intention was to go to First then catch the Flying Fox down to Schreckfeld. Unfortunately, our girls were too light to go on the Flying Fox as the minimum weight is 35kg so instead we caught the cable car to Schreckeld then walked down to... More

This is a great way to get to the top of a mountain. The gondelas seat around six - but you usually get one on your own, and it ascends via two intermediate points (Bort and Schreckfeld), including a couple of changes of direction to the top - where you will be rewarded with splendid views, lots of walking, and...

We drove to Dorfstrasse 168, 3818 Grindelwald - a smaller parking area (fee) Here we used a hiking route which is fine marked in most places, in the beginning you almost walk along garden fencing. But just stick close to the cable car. From the bottom to the station where we stopped (Bort) and down again was a 2.5 hours... More

This gondelbahn will take you on a thirty minute ride to one of the most spectacular views in all of Swtzerland. There is an added bonus of a great restaurant with sun deck at the top. It provides a good starting point for many well signed alpine walks. Check opening times. Free with regional pass.

A spectacular trip with the cabin over Grundelwald that should be done. The landscape over the mountains is wonderful. Trips in few directions could be started from the top station.

Great views over the whole of the Oberland mountains. Some great high level walks can be done from here

Meeting the boys on ultramarathon was easier via the cable car than walking. Very spectacular and convenient.
