The vistas from the half hour cable car ride up and down Mt First are breathtaking and you can see the alps from a new perspective. Enjoy watching all,of the activities below, like. Inking, paragliding, zip line, restaurants, as you go. A definite MUST DO.

The Cable Car Terminal to Grindelwald First is situated on the eastern side of the town and it take about 10mins to reach.

The 6-seaters cable cars take about 25 - 30 mins to reach the top, passing by Bort and Schreckfeld terminals which you can have the option to alight or stay on.

The cliff walk is the highlight of Grindelwald First and it is situated on the left side of First Terminal, which take about 5 mins to reach.

First part is walking along the cliff, follow by crossing a suspension bridge to the end point which has a restaurant and viewing platform. You will need to queue up to take pictures as it is a narrow platform with a glass panel on the far end.

There are abundant activities to do in First. If you are adventurous, you can try the First Glider and Flyer to "fly" across the valley. For the walker, the 50mins Lake Bachalpsee is definitely worth an effort to walk. The view is unforgettable experience with crystal clear Alpine Lake with gigantic snowy mountains on the backdrop. There are also cows around the area which you can have a close up snapshot with them.

The price to go up is quite pricey. However, with Jungfrau Pass, this destination will be included in the package.

Grindelwald is a small town with wonderful mountain views. There is one main street with cafes, restaurants and shops. There is also a sports center and mini golf. It is ideally located to visit everything that this area gas to offer. There are two cable car stations close by, one has gondolas going up to First and the other is a cable car up to Pfingstegg.
We had a car but Grindelwald Station provides excellent train services but prices are high.

I will not make this too long and spoil the fun, well worth doing and the views from 7000 above sea level are magnificent. Cable ride was smooth and quiet. We went up to First by cable car (the third station) then walked down to the second station and got the mountain carts down to the first station and cable car down to grindelwald. Sure is was expensive, even with a swiss pass but as an experience it will stay with me always and we allowed ourselves at least one splurge on this vacation. We had 3 days in interlaken so was able to choose which day to do this, we chose well with spectacular weather and I can imagine it not being as great on a miserable day.
Restaurant fare is limited on the top of a mountain and expensive of course...
