  • After watching the movie North Wand, we had to visit this mountain which also adorns the Toblerone packaging. Good hiking along the north side that does not require any greater physical effort, takes a few hours. Nice view and good places to rest on if necessary.

  • In this walk you walk really down the steep wall of the Eiger before you down towards Grindelwald. Beautiful nature, cosy cows, scenic views. The last piece is very style down, so good mountain shoes!

  • So tired I was. I usually walk every day at work close to 20,000 steps and doing sports on a regular basis, so it was okay. Just the basic desk friend was quite painful. So, feels kinda physical strength is required. As you enjoy wonderful views, very helpful. And because that won't get lost on the way, there are instructions and even a beginner?. However, was careful to dress better and bring in always has some drink and food.
