First, Grindelwald

(4.8/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Use 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). Arrange your visit to First and discover more family-friendly attractions in Grindelwald using our Grindelwald trip generator.

  • Nice quiet cable car in one of the most beautiful areas of Switzerland. Tip: so that your view of the Valley, so maximize this cable adventure upwards. We were here on skiverlof and took this lift often in the morning. She has a good connection to the slopes.
