75th anniversary of the first ascent of the Eiger North Face

The Eiger North Face is one of the great north faces of the Alps. Being the first to conquer this famous wall was the dream of many a climber from all over Europe. The numerous tragedies and the successful first ascent are more than reason enough to celebrate the 75th anniversary of this mountaineering milestone.

From 9 to 12 July, Grindelwald Tourism is inviting 50 journalists to Grindelwald in cooperation with Grindelwaldsports, Eigervision, Grindelwald Mountain Rescue, Grindelwald Mountain Guides Association and the Swiss Alpine Club Grindelwald.
