Ski holidays in Murren

Delightfully peaceful traffic-free village, accessed only by cable car

Mürren, perched high above the Lauterbrunnen Valley, is one of Europe’s most historic ski areas: a “cradle” of Alpine skiing! The peaceful traffic-free village is set dramatically on a terrace on the other side of the valley from Wengen, You can only reach it by cable car. In 1928 its famous  Inferno - at just under 10 miles, the longest amateur downhill in the world - was held for the first time. Mürren is the ideal  retreat from the busier resorts and yet offers great skiing on its own ‘Mürren-Schilthorn’ ski area (which featured in the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service – and is the location for the celebrated Piz Gloria revolving restaurant), with convenient beginners’ slopes and some of the most challenging runs in the region. Non-skiers staying in the region can take advantage of the excellent winter walking and sledging with the non-skiers’ lift pass.
