Toboggan competition Faulhorn Classic
February 17th 2013
The Faulhorn Classic is a very special toboggan run: Approximately 6 kilometres and 850 metres altitude difference is the original route, from Faulhorn to Bussalp. The "toboggan marathon" is organized by the bobsleigh and tobogganclub of Grindelwald. It's a race for sportive people: The start on 2650 metres above sea level can only be reached by foot - and the hike takes about 2 hours, from Bussalp or from First. The reward is the descent on a challenging route in an amazing surrounding. Only the original wooden toboggan with steel skids are allowed. It's a great spectacle!

Insider tip from Daniel Graf
My name is Daniel Graf and I've worked in the Eiger Hotel since 10 years. Until September last year I worked in the kitchen as a Sous-Chef. Since October 2012 I am now assistant to works manager, which is a great new challenge for me. So now you are able to see me in the restaurant Barry's where I will look after you and make sure that you feel comfortable. For me and my wife, Valentines' day is a great opportunity to experience something special together. This year I recommend the Eigerness Workshop "Wood & Love". In the local carpenter's shop "Harmonie Holz" you are able to work together with carpenter Bruno Kaufmann on February 14th and create a wooden work of art together. This is romantic for sure....
