Although it was short excursion from Grindelwald, it was lovely. You can see great Jungfrau mountains from otherside and get thrilled by cliff walk. It is not popular place that not many people were there. You can just plan 2 hour easy excursion if you are in Grindelwald. It's worth it.

Worth a trip up to go hiking above 2000m. Fantastic views of the peaks opposite. Can also get some tasty food at the restaurant

Wow, fantastic views, nice restaurant at the top. Takes about 30 minutes to the top. You can hire bikes and cycle back down again in the spring, summer and autumn.

So good we went up it three times! Breathtaking views all the way up and even better once you get to the top. You really get to see the Alps in all their glory. The views across to the Eiger are particularly stunning, but in reality you can look in every direction and see life affirming beauty. We'd particularly recommend... More

Twenty-five minute cable car ride to the top, then I excitedly stepped out on the Firstwalk and breath in the surreal scenery. Made it out to the end of the overlook, wow!

Normally I do not like mountain trains but the First is an exception. We were comfortable and the car was clean. The scenery up and down was breathtaking. Whitebeard83

From Grindelwald you can buy an adventure pack that cable cars you up to First, then gives you access to a zip line, three wheel tryke and a standing bike to get down. It is amazing. You also can do a thrill walk at the top of First which is cool in itself. But like I said, the adventure pack... More

Take the gondola up the top and enjoy the cliff walk. It's free and very close to where the gondola drops off. The cliffwalk has some great views and there's a restaurant for drinks or food at the end. The walk to Bachalpsee was about an hour from the cliff walk. Highly recommend as it isn't very difficult, but provides... More
