Create an itinerary including Grindelwald-First
Use Grindelwald-First as a starting point for many scenic hikes and ski trails in the Swiss Alps. Sitting above the mountain village of Grindelwald, the summit is quickly reachable by gondola railway and provides panoramic views of the surrounding snow-covered peaks. From here you have access to over 60 km (37 mi) of ski slopes and about 40 km (25 mi) of marked footpaths. Have a bite to eat at the on-site restaurant or relax on the sun terrace with seats for up to 300 people. Instead of hiking or taking the railway back to Grindelwald, descend on the 800 m (2,624 ft) zipline, which races down the mountain at speeds exceeding 80 km/h (50 mph). Put Grindelwald-First on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Grindelwald travel planner.

  • Although you may not have another option as it’s the only cafe on the mountain. Please be weary as the customer service is the worst we have experienced in all of Europe. I have toured third world...

  • Beautiful views on a clear day. Also can sign up for paragliding from First. Mountain carts are really fun! By the end of day the lines for activities like carts and gliders get really long, so should do early in the day.
  • One of the most beautiful place on Earth. MUST visit if you in this region of Interlaken/Luterbrunnen. Without any discount (Like Swiss pass or visiting pass/card), it will cost 64 Swiss Frank return trip, but it's worth it. The cable car takes about 25 minutes to get to the first. Try to spend a whole day and you won't be disappointed. Must visit Bachalpsee lake if you are up there. The view from the mountain is just jaw dropping. Check weather before you go up there so you can enjoy fully. Parking place could be full, so go to Grindelwald early around 8 or 9am. Highly recommend with whole family.
