Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Canton of Bern / Bernese Oberland / Grindelwald-Wengen-Murren-Lauterbrunnen / Grindelwald / The Eiger Trail
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.

From the railway station Alpiglen (Bernese Oberland Bahn) you can reach Eigergglacscher station in about 2 hours via a very well maintained path. From there, the return journey by Jungfrau Railway is possible. In the upper third, the tour can be extended by committing the climbing track Rotstock (the climbing platform is not suitable for hikers! Only required for experienced mountaineers + climbing equipment!) Tip: Don't forget binoculars!
