Beautiful Ride

We took the cable car up to this amazing mountain and then my husband rode the mountain cart down. He said it was dangerous and you really had to be careful as path is steep.

My girlfriend and I went to Grindelwald in the morning and parked at First parking lot, which was 14CHF for 5 hours. The free P+R lot is only available during the winter season. There are many options available to get to the various stations on the mountain and get back down. We choose the cable car up, did the cliff... More

So we decided to grab a coffee close to the train station and then go visit mountain tops in Austria instead. In Austria free vouchers given to cable cars, but in Grindelwald costing an arm and a leg. We decided not to neither support... More

We have used the cable car from Grindelwald up to First a number of times and have had no problems - until this year! The cable car broke down and we were stuck for 40 minutes on a particularly hot day. This is a rare occurence and I would not want this review to put anyone of taking this trip,... More

This wasn't in our plan because it wasn't that popular. But because we missed our train and the morning cruise, we had a whole morning in Grindelwald and decided to visit First, since it's nearby and the cable car ride wasn't as expensive as the trip to other more popular mountains (especially Jungfraujoch). It turn out that First was more... More
