Getting Ready for Summer in Wengen - Hiking to Kleine Scheidegg and Climbing the Eiger

The Wengen area is a mecca for hikers throughout the Spring and Summer.  There are a wide range of hiking paths.  The best guide to these can be found here.  The trails are very well marked.  The best place to stop is at Kleine Scheidegg - several excellent restaurants and a fantastic view of the Jungfrau and north face of the Eiger.


You might even catch a glimpse of one of the many climbers who take on the Eiger in summer.
