Height difference: env. 350 m
Difficulty: easy mountain hike

There is hardly anywhere else in the whole of the Alps where the connection between climate change and natural hazards can be observed as clearly as here, high above the Lower Grindelwald glacier. At the seven stopping points you can learn what lay behind the spectacular rock fall at the Eiger, and how the picture of a mountain hut on the edge of an abyss came to symbolise the possible dramatic consequences of climate change in the heart of Europe. Note: Return the same way on foot.
