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.
The Eiger Bike Challenge with its 1,500 participants is one of the five main mountain bike events in Switzerland.
The Pfingstegg high above Grindelwald affords magnificent views over the whole valley.
