  • 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.

  • After visiting the Jungfraujoch, rather than return to Kleine Scheidegg, starting from eigergretcher station along the way. On the right side is always watching the steep rocks of the Eiger trail. One of the three great north walls close to the eyes. I wonder if compared to men Lichen and first snow on the way, there is a steep descent and high degree of difficulty.
