This is a nice little village you will reach when hinking the Eiger Trail. We stopped here for a nice lunch in the sun, but I think you can stay here for the night as well. Anyway, a very good place to stop during you...More

We were looking for accommodation outside the busyness of Grindelwald and it was recommended that we stay here. It was a short 5 min walk from the train stop and while accommodations were basic, it was comfortable and the food was fantastic. Rösti for dinner...More

Easily accessed from Grindelwald and Wengen on the Kleine Scheidegg mountain railway, just a short walk from the request halt. Not as crowded as other mountain restaurants because no ski pistes are nearby, just walking and tobogganing paths. Good food too!

If you know the history of the North face of the Eiger, you will know that the little hamlet of Alpiglen plays an important part. Situated on the meadows below the North face it is where many climbers have pitched their tents before going onto...More

We three stopped here overnight on our trek across Switzerland on the Via Alpina. After the touristy crowds and ridiculous prices at Kleine Scheidegg, Alpiglen was a welcome respite. It is located on its own, just below the North Face of the Eiger. Views in...More

We love hiking to this little restaurant/hotel; then we sit, have a rosti and beer, sometimes read a book, talk to other hikers coming in and, then usually, catch the train about 100 yards away back to our Grindelwald base

Worth a detour for the apple fritters. Doughnut sized dumplings containing a whole apple. Sold as 3 or 7. Three are enough for one person.
