Grindelwald's official tourist welcome site will direct you to both summer and winter information and links for activities, weather updates, ski pass information and more.

The World Mountain Encyclopedia has information on world mountains and includes Eiger. Photos, gear, and book resources. Most interesting, though, is a reproduction of Eiger's summit log. Reading the entries is like being on the summit yourself, except your toes aren't frozen and you're in the safety of your own room or office.
