Eiger Trail: The Swiss Alpine Experience Trail

This is the rock face of all rock faces, and its climbing routes are amongst the most spectacular in the world. But the myth of the Eiger North Face can also be an impressive experience from below - from the two hour long Eiger Trail, for instance. This trail runs close to the vertically dropping rock face from the Jungfrau Railways' Eigergletscher station along to Alpiglen. An unforgettable alpine experience for anybody – the peak of emotions.

No trail comes closer to the famous Eiger North Face – with the Eiger Trail you are guaranteed two hours of top notch thrills.

Inferno Slopes

Tackling one of the longest downhill runs in Switzerland - extending 14.9 km from the Schilthorn to Lauterbrunnen (800 m a.s.l.) - is best done after a hearty James Bond breakfast at the Piz Gloria revolving restaurant.

The piste from the Schilthorn to Lauterbrunnen is almost 15 km long, making it one of the longest in Switzerland. At the end of January each year, a hellish racing spectacle is enacted here. The descent is open to experienced skiers all winter.
