Eiger North Face Trail: Hiking Along Mountaineering History

The story of the early mountain pioneers who mastered ascents of the local mountains is retold on the two-hour Eiger North Face Trail.

To this day, climbing the Eiger North Face is considered one of the most difficult mountaineering feats. One gazes at it respectfully and admires the tenacity and courage of the early alpinists who climbed mountain after mountain with little of the modern equipment we have today.

Bob Run

Part of the 1969 James Bond film "On Her Majesty’s Secret Service" was shot on the infamous "Bob Run".

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.
