Grindelwald is a small and spectacular city in Switzerland, with a privileged location. From there you can access the First Mountain for a divine walk to the Bachalp Lake, visit the Jungfraujoch (top of Europe), Interlaken, Wengen, Lauterbrunen and much more!
1)HOW TO ACCESS THE HIKING TRAIL GRINDELWALD FIRST TO BACHALPSEE
This is a very easy and pleasant program! Just get the Gondola First, which departs from the top of Grindelwald’s little town. The capacity of each gondola is for 6 passengers. Finally, you will get off the gondola at the last station.
2)THE HIKING TRAIL GRINDELWALD FIRST TO BACHALPSEE
For sure this is a beginners hike, easy for children and elderly people. It is only 5.8km long, round trip. Only the start of the trail is a little inclined. After that, the path is flatter and wider. We took about 1h15min on the way up and another 1h15min on the way back.
The trail begins at 2,149m of altitude and the end at 2,300m altitude. The ascend is very small.
The landscape is so beautiful that you will not feel the time goes by! Typical Swiss pastures in the mountain region!
3)WHAT TO EAT AT THE HIKING TRAIL GRINDELWALD FIRST TO BACHALPSEE
We decided to make a delicious picnic at the mountains. We even took our official checkered towel! Take fruits, sandwiches, water, cake and even a good red wine and rest on the banks of the Bachalpsee. Unique experience.
If you are lucky, you will see many marmots whistling through the countryside! Cute!
Rather than having a picnic, you can eat at the restaurant next to the gondola.
4)WHAT TO SEE AT THE HIKING TRAIL GRINDELWALD FIRST TO BACHALPSEE
You will see unforgettable landscapes all the time! You will find cows with bells, wildflowers of all colors, granite walls, waterfalls and you can even drink water in a stream! And I did not even mention the principal: The mountains with eternal snow and the beautiful Grindelwald!
Don’t worry, the hiking is very well maintained and signalized!
5)THE END OF THE HIKING TRAIL GRINDELWALD FIRST TO BACHALPSEE
Yes, the Bachalpsee may be the end point of this trail, but the pleasure was present in all its extension. Difficult not wanting to photograph the whole time.
If you are a seasoned hiker, in good physical shape and you do not have children with you, you can do many more challenging trails on First Mountain.

She loved to see all the animals of the Hiking Trail Grindelwald First to Bachalpsee, loose in nature, drink pure water directly from a beautiful stream, having the picnic and she still played in a wonderful playground!
The incredible landscape is a bonus for the adults at the playground!
