Grindelwald. The Slopes of Mount First

On your screen are the Bernese Alps. The nearest peak to the camera belongs to Mount First. The ski runs of the Grindelwald resort are laid along it. The camera is installed at the Firstbahn funicular station. The cable cars at this resort operate all year round. In the winter, there are plenty of skiers, and hikers go to the mountains in the summer.

As you can see, near the station there is all the necessary infrastructure for a good holiday, such as the mountain restaurant with a large terrace, Schreckfeld, which offers stunning views. If you climb even higher, near the top, you can find a mountain hut, Berggasthaus First, which you can stay in for only € 73. This price is for a single bed in a shared room.

In addition to First, other peaks also are seen, like the giant mountain, Wetterhorn, rising 3,701 meters above sea level. For comparison, the height of Mount First is only 2,184 meters. Popular tourist routes go across Mount First to other natural attractions in Switzerland, such as Lake Bachalp and the summit of Faulhorn.
