Two hour walking tour tracing the history of the village from its first settlement to modern times. Enjoy the story of the first visits by tourists and winter sports development in the birth place of skiing. Explore the chocolate box beauty of the architectural buildings from the sixteenth to twentieth century.
I first came to Mürren forty years-ago on a one day visit and thought it was the most beautiful place in the world. I was fortunate to buy a holiday home in the village twenty years ago and spent all the formative years of our children holidaying in both summer and winter. Four years ago, my wife and I made the decision to move to Mürren to live all year round and now I share my love for the area with travellers from all round the world.
Meet in Interlaken and purchase transport tickets.
Board the regional train to Lauterbrunnen. The twenty minute journey follows the gorge formed by glaciers and the glacial meltwater of the Weisse Lutschine river with dramatic vertical rock walls.
Mürren is not accessible by car and we will take the cable car to Grütschalp where we will transfer to the mountain railway with panoramic views of the iconic trio of mountains - Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau which takes half an hour.
The walking tour traces the history of the village and explores the streets focussing on the architecture and the stories behind its development with an optional refreshment pause at a local inn or cafe.
Return to Interlaken Ost station. Approximately one hour. Alternatively I can pick up and drop off by car to drive to the Lauterbrunnen valley.
