The Eiger Trail, Grindelwald
(4.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Hike through some of the country's most iconic scenery along The Eiger Trail, a short medium-level trail amidst the famous triumvirate of Swiss summits. Enjoy alpine pastureland, waterfalls, scree slopes, grassy boulder fields, and lake scenery, and see the north edge of the Eiger glacier and sheer limestone buttress protruding out of the Mönch. Take your time and soak up the views with other friendly hikers on this good mixture of steeps and flats. Hop on a scenic monorail to reach one of the lower stations.
