Kleine Scheidegg – Heart of the Alps
Kleine Scheidegg is located beneath the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau at 2061 metres above sea level. It offers visitors a spectacular view of the notorious Eiger North Wall. In 1936, awestruck onlookers watched as four mountain climbers perished on the wall in dramatic circumstances. The tragic story was later made into a film.
Kleine Scheidegg has a railway station, restaurants and hotels. It is also the starting point for the trip by Jungfrau Railway to the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe as well as for many superb hikes.
