Grindelwald was initially an isolated alpine farming village before it developed into the world-famous ski village that it is today. One of the major developments that boosted tourism in the region was the opening of the Bernese Oberland Railway in the year 1890. This brought in people from Jungfraujoch and other neighboring terrains.
The peak of the First mountain, Grindelwald-First became accessible later in 1947, when Firstbahn started operating its six-seater cable cars to the top. For a very long time, the only attraction at Grindelwald-First was this cable car ride. In September 2015, the First Cliff Walk presented by Tissot was inaugurated at Grindelwald-First. It was the first of the many attractions that opened on-site, bringing in multitudes of visitors.
