First stage of the Schreckhorn ascent: Scenically impressive ascent from Grindelwald to the Schreckhorn hut.

The Schreckhorn (4078 m) is located in the Bernese Alps in the canton of Bern. Superlatives are no stranger to the summit: the Schreckhorn is the northernmost four-thousand-metre peak in the Alps and thus also the northernmost four-thousand-metre peak in Europe. It is also one of the most difficult four-thousand-metre peaks in the Bernese Alps to climb. Although the approach to the Hütte and the ascent of the Schreckhorn are quite long, the effort is worth it: the Hütte approach is through a high alpine landscape and the quality of the Aare granite on the Südwestgrat makes mountaineers' hearts beat faster. This stage is a real challenge. This stage serves as an approach to the Schreckhornhütte and is the shorter and easier of the two. It impresses with an impressive, high alpine landscape and a beautiful trail on narrow paths, past waterfalls, over bües, secured sections and ladders.
