Mürren [2] is a small village in Switzerland.

Two chalets on the town's edge.

Get in

From Interlaken Ost station, there is an hourly train to Lauterbrunnen (make sure that you board the correct section of the train in Interlaken, as the train divides at Zweilutschinen). Once in Lauterbrunnen, follow the directions on the signs. You will make the ascent to Grutschalp in a cable car. From Grustchalp, a train takes you along the ridge to Mürren. On a clear day, the view from the train is spectacular. Be sure to sit on the left side of the train for a view of the valley below.

Get around

Mürren is a beautiful car-free village. Everything is accessible on foot.

  • Schilthorn, [1]. It is possible to take a cable car from Murren up to the revolving restaurant on top of Schilthorn. Fantastic views on a clear day.

Be prepared to walk your bike a good distance (30 min or so) There is a nice restaurant in Sechelberg that is a nice place for a rest before the flat ride down the valley. You will also pass Trummelbach Falls on the east side of the valley.
