Murren in Switzerland Resort Guide
High up in the Jungfrau ski area, Reachable only by cable-car, the car-free resort of Murren sits on a sunny plateau at 1650m and boasts incredible views. Less crowded than its more popular neighbour Wengen, the resort gives easy access to the Jungfrau ski area.
There is a great mix of terrains for skiers in Mürren offering suitable runs for beginners to more advanced individuals. You'll find the best slopes between 1,500m and 3,000m, which offers some more challenging fast descents and off-piste terrains if you really want to test your skills.
There are lower runs for beginners, although these often don't see as much snowfall as the higher pistes, so you may be relying on snow machines for optimal cover.
No matter what your level, you'll find skiing in Mürren fantastic for the expansive and breathtaking views alone.
We highly recommend the off piste skiing with a guide.
Accomodation & Après Ski
While Mürren is reasonably quiet and quaint, it does have some great activities and places to visit beyond the slopes. There are a number of great bars and restaurants, offering modern cuisine and traditional dishes. The revolving restaurant atop the Schilthorn mountain as featured in the James Bond film, "On Her Majesty’s Secret Service" is a must see whilst in Murren, Switzerland.
For those who want to spend some time off the slopes, the sports centre is a great way to spend the day. Here you'll find a range of facilities, including spa provisions, a pool and ice rink. There is also an all-purpose sports hall and a squash court, so you'll be spoilt for choice.
