Very steep for the first few miles. We didn’t get a super early start, so the clouds covered the main peaks by the time we got to Kleine Scheidegg. Even without the full view, it was spectacular!

We took the train to the top and did the decent. There is construction at the top so the trail has been altered... potentially permanently. Still great views.

Loved the mix of terrain and stunning views. Went July 1 and some short stretches still had a bit of snow. Very few other hikers. Went from Eigergletscher stop to Alpiglen and had a wonderful lunch at the restaurant.

Amazing hike at the feet of Eiger's North Face, looking at the rocks and passages that made the history of this wonderful wall.

this hike was amazing!! went the beginning of october and had perfect weather. i suggest going early so you are alone on the trail - so peaceful. i thoroughly enjoyed hiking bottom up. we took the train to alpigen and then hiked up to the Kleine Scheidegg station. this was cheaper and 30 mins more walking than catching the train at eigergletscher. overall took 2.5-3 hrs hiking with a 15 minute lunch break.

Stunning view of the Eiger and Grindelwald down there. Easier to hike downhill from Eigergletcher train station to Alpigen station. You’ll have the North Face of Eiger, a very tall 90 degree cliff shooting up in the sky on your right, and the green of hills around Kleine Scheidegg on your left. Most sections of the trail are green, while some are more rocky.

Great walk again after doing it 20 years ago. Shame the opening stretch was closed, but detour was fun.
