A different way to enjoy the view over Grindelwald. Very amusing and hurry up because it closes at 4pm.

We started the journey in the cute town of Grindelwald where we hopped on a series of cable cars that took us up to First. We had seen First Flieger (Flyer) advertised in the translation of Interlaken so we wanted to give it a try -- it did not disappoint! I was nervous at first but the staff was very... More

This is such a cool thing! We had a litte bad luck with the weather (it rained when we arrived), but after about one hour waiting the sun came out and we could finally fly! It was well worth the wait and it was really fun! Good staff! A must when visitinf this area!

Had to give this a go. Got a discount with my bernese oberland pass so only came to 19ch. Comes to a grinding halt at bottom though so beware. Great fun

Alot of reviewers on here saying that the ride gets over within 45 seconds. Well that's true, but the experience is amazing. The views while on this zipliner are truly amazing and well worth the ride. We had taken the fun package and so the trotti bike was also included along with the first flyer. All in all it was...

Avoid if the stairs are 3/4 full of people in line and really avoid if the line extends beyond the stairs!!! ... you are looking at a LONG wait; they only send off two people at a time! When I was there, I had only, about 20 people in front of me and I waited 1/2 hour on the cold,... More

We had done 7hours of hiking and decided to take the First Flyer and then continue down with the lift. We waited for almost an hour, something that wasn't great in the heat and with tired legs, but when we got to do the ride it was fun, a very fast ride, only takes like a minute, but still fun....

The zip line courses in Interlocken were so much more challenging and exciting and kept us busy for hours.

When we first saw this on the side of the mountain we knew that we wanted to do it but chickened out and left. However after mulling it over, two of us decided to go back up and do it! They strap you securely into hanging seats and there is room for four people to go at the same time.... More
