Grindelwald, Switzerland - Uphill Hike - 18th April 2003

Posted by Edmond on Monday, April 28, 2003 · Comments (0)

Short, but tiring, hike up towards the Eiger from Grindelwald Grund. Walking around the narrow roads to get good vantage points of Grindelwald along the slope of Eiger.


After a brief rest at the hostel, I ventured up the slopes towards the Eiger, crossing the Lutschine River and walking along the narrow roads up the slope, following the signs pointing to Brandegg, or Alpligen. As I walked further up towards the Eiger, the roads became steeper and narrower, sometimes it was quite hard getting a foothold. I kept walking until I got to a track crossing with a big farmhouse right next to it.

A few hundred metres east from the track crossing, I was near the foot of the Eiger where some hard snow was still present. Looking south was Grindelwald and Grund, its houses and buildings looking like models in a town set. As it was also spring, some flowers had started to bloom. Hope there will be more picturesque days like this.
