A Snowy Hike From Mürren

Murren, Switzerland, snow, mountains


The clouds we’d seen all week disappeared from the valley revealing a beautiful blue sky so we took the cable car up to pretty Mürren.

Sitting over 1600 metres above sea level at the end of the Lauterbrunnen valley, Mürren has impressive views of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau mountains.

We took a walk along the ridge to Winteregg, this was truly wonderful.

The snow was so deep and it sparkled in the morning sunlight.

There is a train which links Mürren with Winteregg but it wasn’t running that day so we re-trod our steps back to the village.

If you are thinking of booking a trip to Switzerland,  this is the place. Stunning! You can ski, walk, base jump, paraglide, snowboard and hike from this delightfully Swiss resort village, which is only accessible by train or cable car.

Or you can simply sit back and admire the incredible vista before your eyes.

We were staying with family in the valley below, down in Lauterbrunnen, for a fortnight arriving by train from London in December 2012.

Stick around!

    I’ve literally come back from holidays to Lauterbrunnen! Such an amazing, beautiful place. I was not expecting the snow at all-it was brilliantly sunny the day we arrived. Unfortunately we didn’t get to visit Muerren-only went up as far as Gimmelwald but looks amazing judging by your photos!

    • Spooky! You need to get back there then! This was our second trip, we never made it up to Murren the first time round, I was overwhelmed by it this time. So stunning. Thanks for visiting 🙂
