Alpiglen-Brandegg «Eiger Run» (No. 64a - direct)
Sledging experience by day and night - spectacular route along the foot of the Eiger, passing directly below the legendary north face.
Even above daytime, the Eiger Run with its gradient of up to 36 per cent is a fast toboggan run. The whole thing becomes even more exciting when the sun goes down. The night-time tobogganing fun on the illuminated track is an experience that no one should miss. In the evening, special trains of the Wengernalp Railway run every half hour - so you can get from the end of Brandegg to the start on Alpiglen in just five minutes. With the Eiger Run evening ticket you can whizz down as often as you want.
Due to the new Covid regulation, the offer "Eiger Run Night Sledging" will not take place until further notice.
