Set at a lofty 2,061 meters high, with the iconic peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau towering overhead, Kleine Scheidegg is unsurprisingly known for its jaw-dropping vistas, including a striking view of the infamous Eiger North Face. With a cluster of hotels and amenities, the scenic mountain pass makes a strategic base for hiking and skiing, with alpine resorts like Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen just below and access to a vast network of ski runs, hiking routes and rock climbing trails.
The train station at Kleine Scheidegg is also famously known as the starting point for the Jungfrau railway, undisputedly one of Switzerland’s most scenic train routes, which winds its way up Eiger and Monch mountains to the “Top of Europe” at Jungfraujoch – Europe’s highest train station.
Kleine Scheidegg is a mountain pass stretching between the Eiger and Lauberhorn mountains in the Bernese Oberland and the starting point for the Jungfrau Railway. The easiest way to get to Kleine Scheidegg is on the Wengernalp Railway from Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen.
