The views are unto themselves on this challenging ridge hike connecting the Niederhorn (Peak 1963 m.a.s.l.), easily accessible by chairlift, with Mt. Gemmenalphorn (2061 m.a.s.l.) and which veers down towards Habkern. The snowy peaks of the Bernese Alps vie with the karst cliffs of Hohgant and the Prealpine Region.
Mt.Wetterhorn rises majestically and is easily recognizably just above the Grosse Scheidegg. It is just because it is so close to the famous mountain triumvirate Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau that it is less known, but injustly so. The Grosse Scheidegg is the shortest connection between Grindelwald and Meiringen and is in itself a point of departure for many great hikes.
