Hello. We are arriving in Grindelwald on 2nd July and we are there for 4 days. We would like to go to First to do the cliff walk, flyer etc. Could you please let me know how do you get to First from Grindelwald? Should we book now or is it best to wait until we get there? We are also going to Jungfrau but will decide on which day when we are arrive in Grindelwald.

Your advice is appreciated.

Hi MaryR,

You can walk to the valley station of the Firstbahn from the Grindelwald railway station. It's about a 15-20 minute walk along the main street, guided by hiking signs. Alternatively there are buses. Just enter "Grindelwald, Firstbahn" as your destination in the timetable to find details on the connections. If I were you I'd buy tickets on the spot, once you're sure weather is good enough to actually get up there.
