4.7/5 based on 950+ 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).

  • Went to the gondola station, walk to the Observatory. Convince yourself is going, but you have to go to the observation deck jutting out of new way I'm afraid fog as there was nothing will not be visible and clear. You could then hiked up to/from Bachalpsee Lake, in the meantime enjoy fog and sunny great mountain views. Very impressed with the feeling of Switzerland. Hopefully the weather when I go because it is not clear of and, of course, different impression.

  • The best hike we had in Grindelwald. Amazing views. Beginner-Intermediate depending on route. We went from First to Bort via Bachalpsee and Waldspitz (where you can eat). Trotti-bike from Bort to Grindelwald was also worth the 18 chf; but be careful with the brakes! We went in July. Beautiful weather and temperatures were perfect for walking.
  • We were there in Summer. It was beautiful. First-Flyer was great and then Trottibike ... You have to go there and try it :)
  • Starting point of some very nice hikes.
  • 觀景台好美,很刺激呀,風吹會搖呢!
  • 個人感覺比少女峰值得
