The Restaurant Eigergletscher - right at the foot of the Eiger Glacier - is the highest restaurant in the Kleine Scheidegg area of the Jungfrau region. Aside, of course, for the frankly magnificent views from the terrace across the valleys of the Swiss Alps, The Restaurant Eigergletscher is home to the Eigerspitzli - confectionary produced right here at the 2,322 meters above sea-level and is, as far as I am aware, only available here.
From the terrace you get a direct view of the ominous North Face of the Eiger - one of the most challenging climbs in the Alps and one which has claimed many lives over the years. It's not difficult to see why - even for the non-climber such as myself. Personally, I'm happy enough with some decent coffee and liquor-laced chocs!
