Paragliding, 88km/h by zipline, mountain carting and scooter biking, the First mountain in Grindelwald offers it all. I recommend taking the gondola from Grindelwald in the early morning to the top of the mountain on which you can enjoy breathtaking views of the valley than enjoy the famous cliff walk with glass floor before heading to the zipline.

The lineup at the zipline can easily grow to a 2 hour wait so I highly suggest you make that your first activity in the morning after the cliff walk. Afterwards hop on the mountain cart located next to the zipline end-station to experience Mario Kart in real life.
