Escorted Rail Tours to Murren

Ascend the Schiltorn by cable car

Nestled at the foot of the famous Schiltorn Mountain is the pretty, unspoilt village of Mürren. The village occupies a mountain terrace above the Lauterbrunnen valley at an altitude of 5,413 feet (1,650 metres). Mürren attracts visitors throughout the year, although the true attraction for many is the 'Piz Gloria' - an impressive rotating restaurant built at the summit of the Schiltorn, made famous by the 1969 James Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service".

The summit of the Schiltorn is reached by cable car, where on a clear day as many as 200 mountain peaks can be seen. From Mürren there are a number of marked walking trails which lead through the forests and scenery surrounding the village. A more adventurous option is to enjoy ice skating on the village's open-air rink.
