Placed in splendid isolation high on the Schilthorn, Mürren is a favourite with many.

The skiing, if you limit yourself to this side of the valley, is adequate, and the scenery is truly "picture postcard" stuff.
On a clear, sunny day one feels close enough to reach out and touch the Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau, which are in reality across the Lauterbrunnen valley, a heck of a long ways away as the crow flies.

A suggestion would be to take in these sights from the Piz Gloria revolving restaurant, a great treat for those laid back skiers who delight in a lazy lunch and a revolving view of the Swiss Alps. You might like to know, that the "Piz Gloria" was the site of some of the antics of "double 0 seven" himself.


And no I don't know the name of the movie or who starred in it. Reachable by train from Lauterbrunnen, Mürren has a loyal following among the English speaking skiers of Europe. The skiing is liberally sprinkled with slopes of all degrees of difficulty, with something for everyone, from beginners to experts.

Curling

Curling - take time to try your hand at this traditional winter sport. Join in one of the curling tournaments for guests, every Tuesday 16.00 to 18.00 hrs, or enter your curling-team for one of the twenty cup tournaments sponsored every winter - including the ever-popular Children's Curling Cup.


Ice sport

The two artificial ice rinks at the Alpine Sports Center in Mürren are perfect for ice skating. The top highlight for ice skating fans is the Golden Snowball Ice Skating Championship, held annually on 29 December.  Ice skates and sporting equipment may be hired from Stäger Sport, opposite the Alpine Sports Center.

Tobogganing
A Cool "Hot Tip" - Tobogganing!
Tobogganing, as seen here on the fantastic forest run from Sulwald to Isenfluh, has a long tradition in the area. The familiar wooden toboggans are still often used as a means of transport on snow covered village streets and paths and the well known "Grindelwald" model is of course made in the village. Tobogganing remains a great favourite with all age groups, local people and guests alike. Toboggans and bobs can be hired at local sports shops and night-time tobogganing is organized by the local Ski School.  Don't miss the exciting annual toboggan race Sulwald - Isenfluh, held in February.

Winter walking
The villages of Wengen, Mürren, Lauterbrunnen, Gimmelwald, Stechelberg and Isenfluh all belong to a sunny winter walking wonderland, with well maintained trails through stunning Alpine scenery.  Winter-walk to impressive vantage points or to the inviting terrace of a mountain hotel. Even fanatical skiers should leave their skis behind for once and discover the delights of one of the beautiful winter walking paths!

Cross-country skiing

Climbing & Mountain Guides

The Jungfrau Region has a long tradition as a mountain climbing center and the summit of the Jungfrau was reached as early as 1811.
The mountain guides of Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen have rightly gained a legendary reputation, as have their many spectacularly courageous rescue attempts. Mountaineers will really be on a high! Famous peaks over 4000 metres high, e.g. the Jungfrau and Mönch and tempting peaks of over 3000 metres e.g. the Breithorn, Tshingelhorn and Gspaltenhorn issue their icy challenge! The notorious Eiger (3970m) is, of course, a mighty magnet and experienced climbers can scale the summit along the Mittellegi Ridge.

  • For information on the various climbing routes and to arrange the services of a mountain guide, contact the Tourist Information Center and the Mountain Guides Associations.

  • Technical equipment can be hired from local sports shops.

Tours & Mountain huts
Explore this amazing area, safely roped to an expert professional mountain guide! Spend the night in a cosy mountain hut, high in the Alps! (unroped)!
Many different tours, varying in length and difficulty are offered by the Mountain Guide Associations or organized by Tourist Information Centers. Local mountain guides and Jungfrau Railways both offer two day glacier hikes from the Jungfraujoch over the Aletsch Glacier to Kühboden (Fiesch), with overnight accommodation in the Konkordia hut (2850m).

A few of the easier guided routes do not require mountain experience and are suitable for family tours, but you must be in top condition! For example: the two day Petersgrat Glacier hike (3200m), spending the night in the Mutthorn hut (2901m).

Historical Culture Walks

... The blushing Jungfrau, a black mirror and Goethe's "Spirit Song ...
... A historical culture walk around Lauterbrunnen, in the footsteps of great painters, literary giants and philosophers. In the 18th century, no self-respecting traveler could afford to miss a visit to Lauterbrunnen.

The village, with the cascading Staubach Falls and stunning view of the Jungfrau, was one of the undisputed highlights of the "Classic Tour " of Switzerland. On our guided walk, you can find out why this was so, and which sights drew the European aristocracy, famous artists and such celebrated authors as Goethe and Lord Byron to the valley. Texts and illustrations presented before a breathtaking natural backdrop! Experience Lauter- brunnen in a completely new and novel way. Discover fascinating facts. Why does Byron's hero Manfred want to throw himself from the cliffs of the Jungfrau?

What mystery surrounds this most feminine of mountains? (Jungfrau means maiden). Why should you look at the Staubach Falls in a black mirror?
And who is milkmaid Mimili in love with? And what is the connection between the Lauterbrunnen Valley and a picture gallery? And ...
