The Eiger, Jungfrau Region

4.9
#5 of 10 in Trails in Bernese Oberland
Mountain Hiking Trail
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. Put The Eiger on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Jungfraujoch trip itinerary maker.
