Fodor's Expert Review Grindelwald-First

Grindelwald Mountain

After a lovely 25-minute gondola ride on one of Europe's longest lifts, the peak called First (7,112 feet above sea level) is the launchpad for various adventures. For example, you can stroll along a rock walkway and peer over the mountain's edge on the First Cliff Walk, soar along the First Flyer zipline in summer, and sled down the world's longest toboggan run in winter. First is also the starting point for an easy 3-km (2-mile) walk to Lake Bachalp (Bachalpsee).
