36 Eiger Trail Eigerletscher - Alpiglen
The lookout point above Eigergletscher station is where the Eiger Trail begins, which also makes the Eiger an adventure for hikers as it actually runs along the foot of the famous Eiger North Wall. You can thus get close to the scene of heroic Alpine deeds and dramas without having any climbing experience whatsoever. It offers a magnificent view of the wide valley basin of Grindelwald, as well as a sensational close-up impression of the (in)famous Eiger North Wall. In the area of Wart, a panel shows several of the most important climbing routes.
The well-signposted trail runs mostly downhill and the wide scree slopes give way to lush pastures carpeted with Alpine flowers up to Alpiglen station.
The route of the Eiger Trail was changed due to construction work for the V-Bahn project. Please pay attention to the markings on site. The hiking time is extended by approximately 20 minutes.
Variant A: The Eiger Trail can also be hiked in the opposite direction without any problem. Hiking time 3 hours.
