Highlights

Jungfraujoch Top-of-Europe–snow and ice are guaranteed all year round on the “Top of Europe” at 3454 m, the ultimate excursion destination in the Bernese Oberland. Access to high Alpine wonderland may be gained via train services from Grindelwald which take you, via Kleine-Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch, the highest altitude railway station in Europe.

First (2168 m) – over 100 km of hiking trails as well as 500 km of ski pistes and a toboggan run can be found on the south-facing, not overly steep First slope.

Eiger north face –one of the most spectacular and difficult faces to climb in the world; successfully climbed for the first time in 1938.

Eiger Trail – mountain tour imparting an ‘Alpinist’ feel: starting from the Eiger glacier station, the route sticks closely to the rock along the foot of the Eiger north face and leads down to Alpiglen.

Gletscherschlucht (Glacier Gorge) – at the of Grindelwald village lies the wildly romantic, thunderous glacier gorge with its glacial mills and striations as well as the pink and green marble blocks, through which a path leads over man-made footbridges and through rock galleries and tunnels.

Männlichen (2229 m) – gentle walking and winter sports terrain with a link to the nearby kleine scheidegg and with the perfect panorama across the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

Pfingstegg – at 1391m is the lookout post of Grindelwald and offers a unique vista across the valley floor.
