First (produced: fierce-t) was our second favourite place to visit whilst staying in Grindelwald. We had purchased the 3-day Jungfrau Pass so it didn't cost anything extra. We caught the gondola from Grindelwald and enjoyed the pretty mountain scenery during our ride of three sections up to 2,167m. Once there, sights and activities await... A restaurant with lovely sun deck,... More

Cliff was the surprise attraction, even our 7 year old daughter lover it. Ideal to travel in the morning so first you can do the lake bachalp and then the cliff. Cliff walk was one of the highlight of our grindleward tour.

We went up onto First and did the new cliff walk even though I am not good with heights I managed it and I have to say it was an experience and free.

We didn't know what to do when arriving in Grindelwald from Interlaken. But, we found Europe's longest cabled gondola ride up to the ski resort area above Grindelwald. It was a long summer day when they happened to be opened later than usual so we did some hiking then had a great dinner up there overlooking the mountains. You end... More

First cable car stop. Lots to do. Hiking (various well marked trails for all skill levels), mountain biking, First Flyer (a zip wire ride for a cost, complete the disclaimer form and buy tickets at the start of the ride), Paragliding (for a cost CHF 180 per person buy tickets at the store before going to the launch site). Cable... More

I wandered the Jungfrau area for 8 days. First definitely got the best view of all the hikes I went on. Additionally, they got two beautiful lakes nearby that is totally worth a visit when you're there. They have Gondols up there and several methods of going down. By bikes, gondols and more

Fantastic journey by cable car to the top, views amazing. Lovely walk to the lake and back. Shame so many tourists go up there and can get in the way! Do the high level platform walk for the extra views and enjoy the experience. We walked all the way back down ro Grindelwald in pouring rain but still enjoyed the... More

We went up to first as the start of a hike - it was a great first stop - the cliff walk was very nice - they have several activities at first and it is a great place to start a hike

This is one of the must activities in Grindelwald. The cable car ride from Grindelwald to First lasts about 15 minutes. The scenery is breathtaking. The ride is smooth and comfortable. Once at First a menu of mountain hikes is available or you can look around and just ride back. Doing one of the Mountain Hikes is advised but requires... More
