There are some great walks around and up this mountain and some of the paths are so breathtaking, with fantastic views of the Eiger and down the valley...a climber's and walker's paradise.

Our first real mountain,on way from Meriingen to Grindelwald. Massive piece of rock with cloud as a collar. Beautiful sloping valleys with grazing cattle (those bells !!) underneath.
