Mürren is perched on the edge of an 800 m high cliff, rising up from the Lauterbrunnen valley in the Jungfrau region. You can see the Eiger, Mönch, Breithorn, most of the Jungfrau, and many other mountains from here. There are no cars, mountains all around, green slopes and forests and many hiking trails. Oh the serenity 😊!
We are now staying for 2 nights up in the Swiss Alps. To reach Murren we travelled first by cablecar then mountain train. Not possible to take the car so we've left it in Lauterbrunnen car park. We then walked to the close by village of Gimmelwald. Neither Murren or Gimmelwald have cars (except for a couple of locals) and are everything you would expect to see in a Swiss Alpine village. Surrounded by snow capped mountains, chilly fresh air, goats & cows ringing their bells and amazing views! to the big 3 peaks- Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau! Snow is forecast for tomorrow! Murren is also where you catch the cable car to Schilthorn- the mountain peak with the restaurant where they filmed James Bond's 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. Maybe some 007 action awaits us at the top of the Schilthorn??Read more
