Eiger Trail Eigergletscher - 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. Note(s) Mountain hiking trail with no exposed passages. Normal hiking gear, hiking boots with good soles and walking sticks help with the descent. Mid-June to end of September.
