The Eiger, Jungfrau Region

4.6
#5 of 16 in Trails in Bernese Oberland
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. By using our Kleine Scheidegg online road trip planner , you can arrange your visit to The Eiger and other attractions in Kleine Scheidegg.

  • You can see the mountain in Grindelwald weather permitting every day a lot of people died while climbing the mountain snow is mushrooming. Compared to the surrounding peaks is called the slope and did not feel the rush.

  • Saw on a daily basis while staying on the mountain in Grindelwald. The North wall of the Eiger from the terrace of the hostel you can see there and was able to see each other while traveling the region, Grindelwald. Climbers say enough with the tombs of many people looking from afar lives lost place, really nice picture.

  • Best mountain in the world, don't let anyone tell you otherwise
  • I'm now watching the Clint Eastwood [that he also directed] 1975 movie "Tjhe Ei ger Sanction". I assume that it was filmed, in part, at the actual Mt. Eiger?
  • magnificent region
  • Breathtaking view of a great Bernese Alp, on the way to the Jungfraujoch, the Top of Europe.
  • Met a man a few years ago at the lake above Kleine Scheidegg who was going to climb the magnificent and awe-inspiring Eiger.
