The Eiger, Jungfrau Region

(4.9/5 based on 75 reviews on the web)
Catch some great views at The Eiger, a grand mountain in the Bernese Alps. Test your endurance on a hike to the top, or ascend the mountain via cable car or train. All options give you sweeping views of the dramatic surrounding landscape from the stations at 3,000 m (9,842 ft), so make sure to bring a camera. Experienced climbers can try for the summit, which sits at 3,790 m (17,020 ft). Consider exploring the railway tunnel carved through the mountain, which allows access to two viewing stations. If traveling with a dog, bring your four-legged friend along for some clean air and excellent trails.

  • Mount Eiger (Eiger), just a few metres away is not dotjagivajushhaja in height up to 4000 meters is one of the business cards of the Bernese Oberland. This vertex, resembling in form spearhead and dominating over the Valley of Grindelwald, famous due to its sheer over kilometer North wall which attracts climbers for many years, and previously in General was considered to be impregnable. Wall of the Eiger so steep that it practically is not delayed snow, and it stands out even in the winter dark colossus against the backdrop of the surrounding mountains. In the slopes of the Eiger tunnel punched railroad Jungfraubannen, leading to the pass the Jungfraujoch. Along the bottom of the North wall trail "Eiger Trail", where in summer you can walk from Ajgernordvand railway station to Al'piglena, watching from below the peaks of magnificence. With the Eiger North wall involves a lot of tragic events. One of the first attempts to climb, resulting in the death of climbers, perfectly recreated in the film "north face". Summary: beautiful peak, attracts many generations of mountain lovers.
