“Great place to start the Eiger Trail”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Sure, you could be a wimp and start at Eigergletscher Station and walk down to Alpiglen, but why do the easy way when you could start here? Super cute station, and well marked signs to the trail. Have fun on the trail!

“Wonderful walk”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

We walked from Alpiglen down to Grindelwald and from Kleine Scheidegg to Alpiglen and both were wonderful walks through meadows of the most beautiful alpine flowers imaginable. The views were amazing and the alpine cows are extremely friendly!!

“A useful station”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

Not an exciting place but a good end/start for a walk. There is a frequent train service but not much else

“Great toboggan run down to Brandegg”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

You can toboggan from Kleine Scheidegg to Alpiglen but the best run is from Alpiglen to Brandegg. You have a choice of routes - steep or easy

“Sledging Runs”
Reviewed 29 December 2012

The sledging runs at Alpiglen were top notch. Nothing like the sled runs back in Australia, they were dangerous in how fun they were. The "Eiger run" as it's called was heaps of fun, not for the faint hearted or for someone with hip, knee or back problems. For teens and kids it's great fun, and you can get an unlimited sled pass for 42 CHF including the train transfer.
