Schynige Platte, 1967m

Sleeping at the Mountain Hotel Schynige Platte is a special treat: before dinner go for a brief stroll at an altitude of 2000 m.a.s.l. and once more look at the mountain triumvirate Eiger, Mönch und Jungfrau, which reign in majestic silence after the last train has departed. The hotel is right next door to the more than 100-year-old rack-and-pinion train, making for an easy transfer.

A vantage point like the Schynige Platte between Lake Brienzersee and Jungfrau is calling not only for a summit restaurant but also for a hotel.

Eiger-Rotstock - via ferrata with a feel of the North Face

The via ferrata on the Rotstock, 260 metres in length, is a route for via ferrata walkers and experienced mountain walkers with a head for heights (and with the right safety equipment).

The via ferrata on the Rotstock, 260 metres in length, is a route for via ferrata walkers and experienced mountain walkers with a head for heights (and with the right safety equipment). The key to the climb is the vertical section immediately after the start. In the event of snow, strong rain or ice, this is very definitely not a route to be climbed. Like anywhere else on the Eiger, rock-falls cannot be ruled out.
