Take the Eiger Express Gondola up to the Eigergletscher. From there you can take the sledging & hiking trail up to Kleine Scheidegg. During the whole descent you have a wonderful view of the mountain panorama. In addition, the famous triumvirate of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau is right at your back. So it's worth taking a look back. First, the trail descends relatively steeply from the Eigergletscher to Lake Fallboden. From there, the trail leads evenly up to Kleine Scheidegg.
