“Great view”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Took the train from Kleine Scheidegg to Alpiglen, hiked down to Grindelwald. Had to take an easy trail as the Eiger trail ( difficult) was closed that day. There's also a restaurant in Alpiglen.

“OK”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Beautiful surroundings/views - great location for the Eiger trail. Room clean...food OK...Was slightly disappointed in the unfriendliness of the staff. :( We had such great experiences everywhere else in the region..All in all a good choice.

“Great spot for a beer after the Eiger Trail!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

After the wonderful hike we stopped here for a drink under the trees before catching the train back to Grindelwald. The rest rooms are clean and modern and the staff is attentive. The view from here is great as well! I would like to come back for lunch some day!

“Wonderful atmosphere”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

We stopped in for coffed and a salad as we were hiking up the mountain. They also rent rooms. It would be a wonderful out of the way place to stay if you like to hike and like a wonderful view.
