The call of nature
August 3, 2013
When the scent of freshly mowed hay is in the air, the impressive Eiger
north face snowfields glitter in the sun, the alpine roses blossom and the
mountain dew proclaims his freedom in a cheeky & loud way - this is when we
are drawn out into the nature in a magical way. The August sun pampers us with
warmth, the mountain streams promise to cool us off and summer surrounds of
with humming and buzzing.
If you are excited to plunge into the world of legend and myth in Grindelwald or prefer to sporty cheer this year's Eiger Bike Challenge - with a large variety of choices in our August highlights - we hope that you will find something that suits you.
Enjoy clicking through and don't resist the call of nature...

Insider tip from Lino
My name is Lino Costa and I am Porter since 15 years in the Eiger Selfness Hotel and have always "a helping hand". With pleasure and wholehearted I'm "close to the guest". Therefore you will find me in the summer not only in the house but also on our Tuesday-Excursion to the Männlichen. The excursion will take place every Tuesday from July till around mid of September. For this purpose we will drive together up on Männlichen; take a short stop for an Aperitif on the alp and driving further on direction Berghaus Männlichen. There we have a fortifying BBQ outside on the big terrace with unique view direct to the Eiger north face. A special coffee out of the kettle is for sure a must to complete this fantastic adventure. Cost for this excursion = CHF 55 per person. It will be great, if you like to join me!
