We three stopped here overnight on our trek across Switzerland on the Via Alpina. After the touristy crowds and ridiculous prices at Kleine Scheidegg, Alpiglen was a welcome respite. It is located on its own, just below the North Face of the Eiger. Views in all directions are world-class. Meals are excellent, as well our rooms. We were welcomed warmly by the staff (who seemed pleased to meet German-speaking Americans like us). The rail line passes close by the hotel, but its quiet and unobtrusive. The trail from Alpiglen to Grindelwald is well surfaced (in some points, paved), wide and easy. We highly recommend Alpiglen as a quieter, more genuinely Swiss alternative to crowded places like Kleine Scheidegg, Wengen, Lauterbrunnen and Mürren.
