Perched on a cliff above Lauterbrunnen, you will find the beautiful postcard village Mürren. We loved to stay here, as it was quieter than Lauterbrunnen itself. Mürren offers the most beautiful views on a famous mountain trio: the Jungfrau, the Eiger, and the Mönch mountains, which are amongst Switzerland’s most famous peaks.
Mürren has a funicular which will take you up to Allmendhubel. Allmendhubel has a beautiful mountain playground for kids, a restaurant, and is the starting point of many hikes! For the very small hikers there is also a short flower trail with signs to teach them about the local flowers. We did the longer North Face hike from Allmendhubel back down to Mürren and the views are really amazing from here!
Not only peace and quiet in Mürren, as there is also something for an adrenaline boost! The cable car to the Schilthorn Piz Gloria mountain leaves from Mürren and first takes you to the intermediate station Birg. At the intermediate station you will find an adventurous Thrill Walk with glass bottom passage ways and a tunnel to go through while you look deep down from the cliff. Up on Schilthorn, which was a James Bond film location, you can have a 007 Burger in a turning restaurant.
Mürren can be reached from Lauterbrunnen either by 1 steep cable car, or by a shorter cable car and local train ride with stunning views. Count about 20 minutes commute to get to Mürren from Lauterbrunnen.
