Murren

A dramatic entrance is guaranteed in Mürren. There are only two ways in, aboard a funicular and mountain railway from Lauterbrunnen or by a cable car that climbs past waterfalls from Stechelberg and up to the village’s picturesque and car-free streets. Here, in the heart of the Jungfrau region, there are views of the mighty peaks and glaciers of the 4,000 metre-plus mountains of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The rugged scenery and picture-perfect alpine meadows and plateaus are spectacular walking territory, with over 200 kilometres of marked trails – just remember to make time for the village too. Mürren was founded by Walser people from Valais, who brought their own architectural style, dialect and recipes with them.

Hiking the Jungfrau region

You can find everything from scenic valley strolls and waterfall hikes to technical treks around Mürren, making it an excellent base for exploring the Jungfrau region. Allmendhubel is the closest mountain - a funicular delivers walkers up to the panoramic restaurant and paths in just a few minutes. Trace the Flower Trail towards the Mürren-Schilthorn hiking area, looking out for some of the 150 species of wildflowers en route.

Down in the Lauterbrunnen valley, count the waterfalls that cascade down the steep cliffs as you stroll between the villages of Lauterbrunnen and Stechelberg - there are 72 of them (Lauterbrunnen actually means "many fountains"). The Staubbach Falls are probably the most famous, cascading almost 300 metres over the gigantic rock face, and Trümmelbach Falls are particularly impressive, made up of ten glacial falls, hidden within the mountain.

Schilthorn Mountain

A cable car sweeps from Mürren to Schilthorn, known to James Bond aficionados as the home of the famous revolving restaurant of Piz Gloria. A museum reveals the secrets and challenges of filming on this 2,970 metre mountaintop. Of course, there’s life beyond Bond, including a glass-balconied Skywalk and a Thrill Walk from the gondola station at Birg. That one does exactly what it says on the tin, lining up vertiginous steel walkways and bridges that cling to the cliff.

During summer 24, a new cable car to Schilthorn is under construction - the current cable car is still in use, but a few of the viewing platforms at Schilthorn and Birg may be closed.

Flower parks and children’s trails

Mountain parks, playgrounds and picnic spots are sprinkled throughout the Jungfrau region. The Flower Park at the top of Allmendhubel is a favourite with families staying in Mürren. There are slides, zip lines and a neighbouring restaurant serving up Bernese specialities like steak with garlic butter, rösti and cheese fondue made for sharing. Or you can just sip a rosehip tea while taking in the view. Swap the mountain lift for the Children’s Adventure Trail on the way back to Mürren; it leads kids through a series of woodland slides, walkways and rope swings.

Mürren and more

Mürren is made for wandering, neatly tucking wooden chalets, viewpoints and pedestrianised streets onto a sky-high green terrace. Fancy exploring further into the mountains? Head out for a day trip to Jungfraujoch. Here, trains take on one of the most scenic journeys in the world, chugging from the pastures of the Bernese Oberland to the highest railway station in Europe. For more in the way of adventure, the twin-lake town of Interlaken is an hour’s journey away by cable car and train.
