The First cable lift offers several levels to get on or off. There are incredible views and hiking opportunities at each location. We rode to the top and walked the trail to the Bachalpsee Lake. It was an easy walk for these 2 active seniors who are not necessarily hard core hikers. The walk took about 40 minutes with stops... More

Amazing view into Grindewald valley. I recomended to go through the First Cliff Walk, we were delighted to see Jungfrau, Eiger, Monch and many other mountains covered with snow. On the way down you must experience First Flyer.

It doesn't really happen that often that I get to see a new view with unbelievable weather... First is like that - first (-: the cable car is amazing and then the site itself. The cliff walk is not to be missed!

We did small hiking with 2 years old daughter on the trial to Bachalpsee. The trial is easy and full of wonderful view. It is a must have if the weather is not so bad :-)

A great start for a variety of hiking and various difficulties. You will see beautiful waterfalls and cows grazing in the meadows enchanting you with the sound of their bells. Trail to the lake well maintained. Do not miss.
