>> Can you help me understand how much time should we allocate for a trip to The First - Grindelwald? We plan to do the walk on the bridge and a couple of activities like flying down with the First Flyer or the trotti bike.
Probably a good half day.
- The First Cliff Walk takes 10-15 minutes each way.
- The Trottibike Scooter activity is only available 5 May to 28 Oct 2018, so if you are there in late April it won't be an option.
- The actual ride on the First Flyer is over very quickly, but you might need to factor in waiting time, as there is often a lengthy queue - though perhaps it's not so bad in April, which is low season.
>> Also, is there a separate entrance fee for the First, other than the cost for the Gondola from the valley to the top?
>> How much do the entrance ticket and the Gondola cost?
The gondola from Grindelwald to First costs CHF 30 each way (full fare, adult).
>> I am thinking there is a 25% discount on the Gondola if we have the Swiss pass, correct?
If you have a Swiss Travel Pass, you get 50% discount.
You can download a map from the link below, showing what is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass.
As explained in the legend on the map, red lines are trains, yellow lines are buses, black lines are cable cars, white lines are boats. Solid lines are free, dotted lines are discounted. Discounts are mostly 50%, but only 25% for transport where you see the number "1" inside circle near the dotted line. There are a few grey lines on the map as well, which indicate transport that is not covered by the Swiss Travel Pass. Dashed red lines on the map are railway tunnels, and are on routes that are free with the Swiss Travel Pass.
