17 June – Last Swiss day
No luck with the weather, but the Eiger Northface has its charm also in bad weather, so we walk some 2 hours to enjoy the sight of it from below. Our Grindelwald guides take care of us, in particular when they “drop” us down the Grindelwald Schlucht, some 80 meters in the void, but well secured by a rope. We then crossed the Jungfrau once more – this time through the railway tunnel, and here we are in Sunny Brig. We can then see the current Alpine city of the year and hear from the authorities about implementation of the Alpine Convention, in particular in the area of mountain agriculture. A delicious raclette for dinner, and then all in bed (or watching football on tv). Tomorrow we head towards Austria!
