I've experienced this world-class hike in June and the end of September, both times hiking with loved ones. June brought lovely flowers and cows, their bells jangling, wandering about the rocky meadows. If you start the path at Kleine Scheidigg, and head downward, you'll have...More

We hiked the Eiger Trail in October 2017. We took the train to the top of the trailhead and made our way down to Alpiglen, where we took the train into Grindelwald. The hike took about three hours. We could have gone faster but the...More
