Eiger, Grindelwald, Interlaken-Oberhasli administrative district, Oberland administrative region, Bern, 3818, Švicarska

Eiger, a towering mountain in the Bernese Alps of Switzerland, stands at 3,967 meters. Renowned for its imposing north face, a dramatic vertical expanse of rock and ice, it presents one of the most challenging climbs in the Alps. First ascended in 1858, its notorious north face wasn’t conquered until 1938. This north face has claimed over 60 lives, earning the nickname “Mordwand” or “murderous wall.”

The mountain, part of a ridge that includes the Mönch and Jungfrau, offers a unique feature: a railway tunnel with stations inside the mountain, providing access to viewing windows. The Eiger’s name, meaning ‘ogre’ in German, adds to its formidable reputation.
