A classic classic, alpine hike with views of the Wetterhorn, Schreckhorn, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks and the Thunersee and Brienzersee lakes. Starting point – Grindelwald (1047 m above sea level). Elevation approx. 1634 m. Support points: cottage Berggasthaus Waldspitz (1903 m above sea level), cottage Bergrestaurant First (2166 m above sea level), cottage Berghotel Faulhorn (2669 m above sea level)

Grindelwald, north face of the Eiger ...

In the morning a quick transfer from the campsite in Lauterbrunnen to Grindelwald (parking Parkhaus Eiger, Endweg 1B). Grindelwald is a beautiful mountain resort, one of the oldest in Switzerland, which has not lost any of its charm for decades – the alpine huts are still decorated with flowering geraniums and above them are beautiful green pastures. All this is surrounded by mountains. As if carved by the northern wall of the Eiger, 3970 meters high, the shimmering slides of the Oberer and Unterer Grindelwaldgletcher glaciers and the crown-like shield of the Wetterhorn (3692 m above sea level).

First (2167 m asl)

An elevated footbridge leads to the top of First. The cable car from Grindelwald also ends here, so you will meet people here much more than on the way.
