Take the Eiger Express Gondola up to the Eiger Glacier. From there you can follow the sledging & hiking trail to Kleine Scheidegg. Throughout the hike you have a wonderful view of the mountain panorama. In addition, the famous triumvirate of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau is right at your back. So it's worth taking a look back. First, the trail descends relatively steeply from the Eiger Glacier to Lake Fallboden. From there, the trail leads evenly up to Kleine Scheidegg.

Getting There

Public transport

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run directly from Basel and Lucerne to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich have to change in Berne. The trains run every half hour.

 

Getting there

Car: There are different ways to reach the region by car. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Berne. The fastest route from Zurich is through Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.

From the south, the route goes over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then Lötschberg car transport.

 

Parking

Grindelwald has public car parks with covered parking spaces: Eiger+ car park (252 parking spaces) and Sportzentrum car park (160 parking spaces). They cannot be reserved in advance. Uncovered parking spaces are available everywhere in the village.
