This three-day hike takes you from the monastery village of Engelberg along two of the most beautiful pre-alpine mountain lakes to Meiringen and further over the big and small Scheidegg passes to the mountaineering Meccas of Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen. The route is dominated by the spectacular scenery of the high summits of the Bernese Alps, with a great variety of landscapes and cultures. The Eiger-Trail, on the third day, is a spectacular variant of the original Via Alpina trail, leading to the foot of the Eiger north face, world-renowned and rich in history.
