Info. First Cliff Walk
The village of Grindelwald in the centre of the Swiss Alps is surrounded by towering peaks such as Männlichen, Faulhorn and the Wetterhorn. In winter, Grindelwald is home to one of the biggest ski resorts in Switzerland's Jungfrau region, and even out of season there's still plenty of thrilling activities to be found here.
You can take a gondola from the village up to a small peak called First, home of the First Cliff Walk observation platform, seen in our photo. Visitors walk up the metal footbridge that winds along the side of First and onto the platform, which extends out 45 metres over the abyss. The beauty and verticality of the views from this spot are sure to set just about anyone's heart racing.
