FAQs: Mountain Climbing in Grindelwald

What should I know about Mountain Climbing Grindelwald?

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.

Why should I choose Grindelwald for my Mountain Climbing adventure?

Stunning scenery

Why do we climb mountains? To see our surroundings. Few places boast more gorgeous surroundings than Grindelwald. The valley in which the idyllic little village is located is incredibly verdant. The contrast with the snow-capped mountains is impeccable. One must-bring on any mountaineering trip here is your camera, and some extra batteries too.

The tremendous trio

Sitting just to the south of Grindelwald are the iconic peaks of Mönch, Jungfrau and Eiger. Each one takes between two and three days to climb and offers plenty of great climbing opportunities and, of course, unparalleled great views from the summit. For any passionate alpinist, these three peaks should be at the top of your to-climb list.

Challenge yourself

Intermediate and advanced mountain climbers flock to Grindelwald each year to test out their skills. The North Wall on eiger is one of the most challenging in the Alps. Getting to the top is the challenge of a lifetime and can be dangerous if you’re not prepared. That doesn’t stop intrepid climbers from trying. Summiting Mönch and Jungfrau is also a feather in the cap of intermediate alpinists.

What can I expect from the weather during my Mountain Climbing trip in Grindelwald?

During the summer, the average daily temperatures around Grindelwald range from 10 ºC to 13 ºC. These drop dramatically as you gain in elevation. Summer is also the wettest time of year in Switzerland, which receives between 50 and 60 millimeters of rain each month.
