More Info

While Grindelwald will inevitably be linked with the big three – Mönch, Jungfrau and Eiger – there are plenty of other incredible climbing options out there as well.

For mountain climbers looking to avoid the sometimes crowded slopes of the big three, there are some excellent alternative trios, including the Mettenberg, Kleines Schreckhorn and Schreckhorn.

While all three have incredibly scenic and fairly simple approaches, some rock climbing and scrambling will be needed to summit each. From the top of any of these peaks, await the best views of the big three. They are definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in the village.

To the north of Grindelwald, Reeti, Faulhorn, the Schwarzhorn and Wildgärst make for incredible climbing destinations as well.

How to get there:

Flying into Zurich Airport (ZRH) is the best way to begin any trip to Grindelwald. From here, the peak is just a two hour drive away in a hired car and slightly longer via train and/or bus.

Andrej is not extremely talkative but everything he said was gold. I hope to learn more from him, and it would be a great gift to humanity if he wrote some of his little stories in a little book.
