/ Camping under the Eiger
We'll be arriving in Grindlewald at about 8pm this coming saturday. Would we be able to get the train up to kleine scheidegg at that time and find a place to camp/bivi?
Any suggestions/recommendations welcome!
I think you would be lucky to get a train from Grindelwald up to kleine scheidegg at that time - as the last train in the opposite direction down the mountain is certainly earlier.
I think your best bet is to stay in Grindelwald & get the first train up the next day.
Not sure of your plans - but there is accommodation at kleine scheidegg - no camping as I'm aware?
I wouldn't advise a walk between the two locations - it's a long way before you even start!
There are two ways of getting the train up to kleine - either from Grindelwald which doesn't run late or get the grindelwald/lauterbrunnen train from Interlaken. At Zweiluchscheinen the train splits in half. half goes to grindelwald whilst the other half goes to lauterbrunnen. top tip - don't be on the wrong half of the train. You can get a late WengenAlpBahn train up to Wengen fom Lauterbrunnen. From there it is possible to walk up to kleine scheidegg.
Alternatively you could try Camping Jungfrau at Lauterbrunnen and get the train up to Kleine in the morning.
Hope this helps!
