Just above Wengernalp railway station, a wide forest road branches off right to two large alp huts on Wengernalp. The trail then heads south over wide flower-filled meadows to Wixi. After circumventing a striking rocky outcrop, it leads through a small forest of fragrant Swiss stone pine to Biglenalp From here, at the the foot of the Jungfrau, it continues to Loucherlicka. Climbing up under the vertical cliffs of the Loucherfluh, the trail winds left to the steep upper pastures of Alp Wixi. Flowers and barren glacier moraine; The hike though a fabulous world of flowers now turns onto the karst moraine of the Eiger glacier. As you hike up the moraine, your Eigergletscher destination is within reach. You’ll immediately be captivated by the high-Alpine surroundings, with stunning views of the rock and ice masses of the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau seeming almost close enough to touch.
