Mürren

Mürren is a traditional Walser mountain village in Bernese Oberland, Switzerland, at an elevation of 1,650 m (5,413 ft.) above sea level and unreachable by public road. Tourism is popular through the summer and winter; the village features a view of the three towering mountains: Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau. Mürren has a population of just 450, but has 2,000 hotel beds.

The only way to reach lovely Murren is by taking a series of trains and cable cars. Once you’re there, you’re walking or biking around this charming car-free village. But it’s well-worth the trek, especially if you’re a skier or snowboarder. There are 32 miles of trails plus lots of off-piste opportunities. The sledding is even better. Take a cable car to the summit of Schilthorn for epic alpine views.

Within the village there is a large sports center with a 25 m swimming pool, sports hall, fitness room, cafe, information center and other facilities. There is a large skating rink which is sometimes used for curling competitions as well as a specific curling rink that in the summer is a tennis court. The ice rink is turned into a mini-golf course during the summer months. In the summer there are also tennis courts near to the sports-chalet.

Eiger Hotel is first class. The rooms are beautiful and super clean and comfortable. Great food & service in the restaurants and Susanna and her team are amazing. Located literally across the Eiger, Monch & Jungfrau peaks, views are spectacular even on a rainy day. The hotel staff are super friendly and go 110% to help plan your day, find your way around and provide amazing service.

Murren is a perfect central point for seeing a great deal of the Bernese Oberland Jungfrau Alps. Wherever we went during the day, we always looked forward to an amazing dinner at the Eiger hotel and evening views from balcony.
