#1 of 97 in Trails in Switzerland
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 Grindelwald online road trip planner, you can arrange your visit to The Eiger and other attractions in Grindelwald.
