This was our favourite activity in Grindelwald. The cable car isn't cheap (about £40ish return) but well worth it as the views are breathtaking. When you get up to the top, there's the mountain edge walk which is included in the ticket price. The restaurant on top is very nice and offers spectacular views. It's expensive, but then you are...

This really is a beautiful part of the Jungfrau region. Make sure you take a picnic lunch - sit back and enjoy the views. The cliff top walk is also spectacular, and is fine even for people with a fear of heights - our 10 year old son wasn't going to do it, but after some convincing, did it, and... More

This is a must-do for amazing mountain views and fun! We went to First for the Cliff Walk and for the mountain carts. Both were fun, but the mountain carts were one of our favorite things we did during our time in Switzerland. We had a blast!

This was definately worth a visit to travel up on the cable cars, once at the top you have a great easy walk around the mountain which is very daunting experience. I just love travelling up on the cars and looking at the views

Despite an aversion to cable cars we have been up to First twice in the summer season, and will do it again. The views on the way up and down from your small rather bouncy gondola (!) are fantastic but from the summit are breathtaking. Having a drink on the outside terrace of the restaurant to take in the vista... More

The views up there exceed what you're expecting based on the pictures. Just go. Had some fighter planes doing low passes through the alps when we were there, not sure if that is a typical training or a rare occurrence.

I thought it was a little pricy but its a pretty long way up and takes a good 30 minutes in the Cable Car. Unfortunately we were tight on time and didn't get the chance to meander down as it closes at 5pm, which is a shame as it was a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and daylight. it... More

With the SBB travel pass, we’ve got 50% discount for the cable car to First where it takes around 30-minutes ride from Grindelwald. We did enjoy the spectacular scenery so much, worth to go.

I had much fun during First mountain walk and trotti bike even if the weather was rainy. If you visit here, I recommend trying the trotti bike(scooter).
