Walcherhorn

The Walcherhorn is somewhat overshadowed by the Bernese four-thousanders, however this 3693-meter summit nestled between the Mönch and Eiger deserves higher praise for its panoramic views and great glacier hiking opportunities. This guided day tour from the Jungfraujoch is easily hiked in summer or accessed with snowshoes in the winter.

Day 1: Walcherhorn 3693m

Meet your guide at Grindelwald Terminal and travel together to the Jungfraujoch. You will access the glacier by way of the tunnel and then climb for about an hour to the Mönchsjoch Hut. Via the Ewigschneefeld (“eternal snowfield”), you will descend to the glacier hallow below the Walcherhorn. After a break you will ascend for another hour through glacier depressions to the summit of the Walcherhorn. At the top you will be met with impressive views of the south side of the Eiger, and far down the valley you will be able to see Grindelwald. After enjoying refreshments from your backpack, you descend along your original route and return home from the Jungfraujoch in the late afternoon.

Huts

A mountain hut is not a hotel. Running water is not guaranteed and electricity is not available everywhere, so it is not always possible to charge batteries or phones. If you have special dietary needs, please inform us in advance so we can make arrangements with the hut.
