Amazing views from the top!

Nice and beautiful ride to the top via cable car. Very smooth ride and very high up. Restaurant at the top. Rented trottie bikes on the way down.

We were lucky enough to catch this gorgeous Cable Car Ride on opening day, and got a 75% discount on the tickets. But...it's worth the full amount. Heavenly views, great (easy) hiking. It was warm even though we were surrounded by SNOW. We will do this again.

We had a 3 day pass so we hired a couple of sledges and went to the top. There is a designated run for sledges and hikers which is excellent. We stopped halfway and had a Beer and the views are to the back of the Eiger. It was a little bit slushy in parts but it was good fun... More

We got the cable car up (half price fare with your visitors card), and hiked up towards the oberjoch, absolutely stunning views of the Eiger and the valley.

Took the lift up to hike the Panorama way. Stunning views and a fairly simple hike. There is a bus going back but the way down is worth a hike in itself.

Enjoyed the long runs, but need better infrastructure when you arrive in the village, you can wait 20 mins for a bus to pass by!!!

Really liked the efficient set up. Small restaurants everywhere with good service. Skiing back down to Grindelwald made easy.

First has a good variety of runs at all levels with two snow parks. All the lifts were open and there was plenty of snow. There is also a good selection of restaurants for lunch although expensive by British standards. There is a nice long red to the bottom to end the day with a regular 15 minute bus service... More
