The Eiger Express

From 5 December, visitors will be able to reach the winter sports and hiking area around the Eiger Glacier (2 320 metres), the Kleine Scheidegg and the Jungfraujoch quicker and comfortably.

The cable cars (“Eiger Express” and Männlichenbahn) can transport 4000 guests per hour.

The new Eiger Express cable car has a capacity of 2200 persons per hour for transport to the Eiger Glacier.

The Wengernal railway exists since 1893 and goes from Grindelwald to the Kleine Scheidegg and on the other side via Wengen to Lauterbrunnen.

Since 1912, the world-famous train also runs via the Kleine Scheidegg and the Eiger to the highest train station in Europe at the Jungfraujoch (3454 metres high).

The hiking routes between the mountains Männlichen and Kleine Scheidegg and below the north side of the Eiger are also easier and faster to reach with these new railway tracks. (Further information:
