  • Start at the top and walk down. Fairly easy except for a couple of steep uphills. Nice views of the mountains and Grindewald  more »
  • Eiger trail if you start from Grindelwald is not that easy, but if you don't rush, it's doable even for not very sporty people :) It's very beautiful, rocky, and the views all time are simply stunning...  more »
