Tour description

Summary
It doesn’t always have to be about the Eiger mountain: At the foot of Wetterhorn, this trail winds through snowy meadows and forests towards the Grosse Scheidegg pass.

Route Description
The circuit begins at the “Upper Glacier” car park. Between Hotel Wetterhorn and the small kiosk, the trail passes through snowy fields towards Weidli. After just a few minutes, a fantastic view opens up over the winter sports area of Grindelwald-First, the Schynige Platte and the Grosse Scheidegg pass.

The first ascent takes you up to the Ischbodenhütte restaurant. Here, along with local products, guests also get a free view of the Eiger mountain. And no less impressive is the view of the Wetterhorn and Chrinnenhorn peaks, as well as the upper Grindelwald glacier. Then it’s a couple of hundred metres downhill and the final ascent to Unter Lauchbühl begins – the highest point of the trail.

The path passes through open fields, and then back to Hotel Wetterhorn, which can easily be reached by bus from Grindelwald station.


Variants

This circular tour also starts at the Hotel Wetterhorn. The trail runs from Weidli over snowy meadows to the Ischboden Hut. The highest point at Unterer Lauchbühl lies at 1401 metres above sea level. At the foot of the Wetterhorn, the magnificent views of the Chrinnenhorn and the eastern flank of the Eiger are always in sight. The gentle descent leads you back to the starting point.
