Fodor's Review

Among the greatest attractions in Grindelwald is the Firstbahn, a 30-minute gondola ride that is one of Europe's longest lifts and offers lovely views of the wide valley below. From the top, you can engage in all sorts of outdoor thrills, from soaring on a zip line in summer to sledding down in winter. Firstbahn is the starting point for an easy 3-km (2-mile) walk to the Bachalpsee.
