Tour description

The Holenstein intermediate station of the Grindelwald-Männlichen gondola is the starting point for this tour. This impressive hike taking in stunning views of the Eiger North Face initially leads over open terrain, past alp huts and cheese storehouses towards Hubelwald forest. Clearings reveal views spanning from the Faulhorn, the Grosse Scheidegg, Wetterhorn and Finsteraarhorn to the 1800-metre-high north face of the Eiger. Following the forest path, the route winds its way towards the Tschuggen ski piste and then through the Itramenwald to the Brandegg mountain restaurant.


The trail is marked red.
