The Wetterhorn (3692 m) is a mountain mass with three rocky summits of similar height, all rising from snow and ice-covered slopes. The mountain poses magnificently for photographs, and is one of the most often photographed mountains from the town of Grindelwald. Located just east of town, it is also one of the most often climbed mountains in the Alps. It rises just north of the great trio of peaks, Eiger (3970 m), Mönch (4107 m), and Jungfrau (4158 m).

The ascent of Wetterhorn is a mixed climb on snow, ice and rock, and among its many climbers was Sir Winston Churchill in 1894.

The three summits of Wetterhorn, Mittelhorn and Rosenhorn constitute the Wetterhörner.
