Enjoy the relaxed, small village atmosphere that is close to many exciting things to do including hiking, exploring the waterfalls, a visit to the Schilthorn Mountain and a trip to Jungfraujoch – the Top of Europe! 

Explore the 72 Waterfalls of Lauterbrunnen Valley

The Lauterbrunnen Valley is said to be one of the most beautiful in Switzerland. It became a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site in 2001. Rumor has it that Tolkien got the idea for Rivendell during a hike from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen. 

Piz Gloria at the Schilthorn Mountain Summit

The deck of the Schilthorn looks out at over two hundred mountain peaks, and in clear weather you can see all the way to Lake Constance, bordering Switzerland and Germany. 

Relax and watch the paragliders at Hotel Regina

To while the time, for which a car-free village is particularly suited, I found a table on the deck of the Hotel Regina. Relaxing with a local Black Beer, Schwarzen Mönch, brewed in nearby Gimmelwald and a vegetarian sandwich. 

Skyline and Thrill Walk

Birg Station features the Skyline Restaurant, which is mostly an outdoor terrace with a partial glass deck at the end; and the Skyline, for mountain views that can be like standing in the clouds. 


A funicular rises from the Mürren village up to the flowery glens above on the Allmendhubel mountain taking you to beautiful views of the Jungfrau, Mönch and Eiger. 

Jungfraujoch: Top of Europe

Jungfraujoch is a viewing point Bernese Alps and, at an altitude of 3,454 m, Europe’s highest train station. It lies at the end of the engineering marvel of a tunnel that cuts through the rock of the mountain ridge.
