At 4,274 m the Finsteraarhorn is the highest mountain in the Bernese Alps and in Central Switzerland. Its distinctive shark fin-like shape, its dominance and prominence make it one of the most beautiful mountains in Switzerland and of the entire Alps.
The Finsteraarhorn is a part of the Aar massive and is geologically composed of amphibolite. It is very remote and can only be ascended in a two- or three-day tour. The ascent usually starts on the Grimsel Pass or Jungfraujoch and from there leads via the Finsteraarhorn hut (3,048 m) up to the summit.
Along with the two alpine guides, Jakob Leuthold and Johann Währen, the Swiss glaciologist Franz Joseph Hugi attempted the ascent of the Finsteraarhorn on August 10th, 1829. Due to a foot injury Hugi had to stay put on the North-east ridge on the “Hugisattel“, which is named after him, while both of his guides succeeded in the first ascent of this challenging summit.
Eritrichium nanum, commonly known as King of the Alps, Alpine Forget-me-not, is a perennial.
Eritrichium nanum was already described and the name validly published by Carl Linnaeus. It was Jean François Aimée Gottlieb Philippe Gaudin, however, who reclassified it into todays valid botanical systematics in 1828 based on a prior description by Heinrich Adolph Schrader.
Eritrichium nanum is a species in the genus Eritrichium which contains approximately 79 to 125 species and belongs to the family of the Boraginaceae (Borage Family). It is native to France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, the Alps and the Carpathian Mountains.
