Fans of Clint Eastwood might know the movie “The Eiger Sanction”, a seventies movies (yes Clint looks still fit and sexy) filmed up and around the famous Eiger Mountain. Also “North Face” (Nordwand), was set here. The film is based on the true story of two climbers trying without much luck to conquer this infamous peak in 1936. Not only the Eiger but also the Hotel Bellevue des Alpes is seen in the film. And I must admit, staying here, feels a bit like in the movies. Very unreal, very out of this world.
