This was such a beautiful mountain. If you have a Swiss travel pass, there is a discount for taking the gondola up the mountain. We recommend going down the mountain from the top using the mountain carts to the second highest gondola stop and then...More

A must do for visitors that want to see the beautiful swiss mountain landscape and a spectacular waterfall. Our only regret was not taking advantage of the scooter, tricycle, or zip line activities. It is expensive but if you have the swiss travel pass you...More

Absolutely magnificent views of the mountains and got lucky with a bit of snow. The ridge walk is also recommended.

We had the Jungfrau pass and yes, we rode free on the cable car from Grindelwald to First. However, that activities in First (scooters/ziplines/trottibikes, etc) are not included with the Jungfrau pass.
