Murren On a Budget
Murren Murren, Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland
Murren (or Muerren) is a fairly expensive destination, as it's a small town in a very popular area for travelers in the Jungfrau region of Switzerland. The town sits up on the side of the mountain above the Lauterbrunnen Valley, and is mostly car free. Getting here involves a ride on a gondola and cog-rail. The main activities in Murren are skiing in winter and outdoor activities in the summer, all of which tend to be a bit pricey. However, the price is well warranted according to most visitors, as the mountain scenery is top notch, the food is excellent, and the activities are world-class.
The main attractions in Murren are the views of the mountains surrounding the valley, along with the quaint buildings in the town itself. Plenty of fun outdoor activities abound in the area (more on that below). Many visitors take the gondola to Schilthorn and Birg, the peaks at the top of the mountain above Murren. Here you can see amazing views, take the Trill Walk, and visit a James Bond museum. Also, just above the town is Allmendhubel, an area with great views, a playground, and a tasty restaurant. You can get there on the short cog-rail from the center of town. Other sights include the nearby towns of Grimmelwald, Lauterbrunnen, and Jungfrau peak ("the top of Europe") on the other side of the valley. There are also a few waterfalls in the surrounding valley to visit, especially Trummelbach.

Murren and the surrounding mountains seem to be made for outdoor activities. In winter, you'll find plenty of ski runs and snowboarding. You'll also find cross country ski trails and snowshoe paths.

In summer, the options for outdoor activities seem endless. Hiking is obviously popular given the mountain setting. Numerous trails leave from Murren and other nearby towns and vary in difficulty level from extremely easy to expert to terrifying. Some of the routes are very relaxing, such as the road down to Grimmelwald or the paths up around Allmendhubel. You'll see wildflowers, farms, and gorgeous views if you just want to take your time.

The Cliff Walk (or Kletterseig or Via Ferrata) is a fun route that leaves from the center of Murren and requires some climbing equipment. You'll traverse some tightropes over canyons, hang on to metal handlebars, and do some climbing along the way.

Paragliding is another popular activity, and several of the outfitters and tour companies in the area can hook you up. Usually you need to be at least 14 years old to participate.

If you're looking for something a little more relaxing, Murren has a sports center with an indoor pool, hot tub, and an exercise gym. You can also wander through the town and visit the shops and scenic views. Or just ride the gondolas around to take in the mountain scenery.
Food and Dining
Many of the restaurants in Murren are part of the hotels, but some stand on their own. Generally, food here is quite expensive as you would expect given the location up on the side of a mountain. However, it's very good. Many restaurants serve typical Swiss foods such as fondue, steak, sandwiches, pasta, and other standard menu options. Nightlife is fairly limited, as a few of the hotels have small bars, but that's it.

Some of our favorite places include the restaurant at the Hotel Edelweiss (amazing views), Alti Metzg (a casual bistro and bakery on the main road), and the restaurant at the Hotel Alpina.

Plenty of other dining options can be found down in the town of Lauterbrunnen.

Interlaken is the nearest major city to Murren and the Lauterbrunnen valley, and from there you can catch trains to anywhere in Switzerland or the rest of Europe. It also has an airport, and you can also rent cars there. Cars are not permitted into Murren, though, so you'll have to park down in the valley. It's probably better to just take public transit unless you're getting a car for the rest of your time in Switzerland.

To get to Murren by public transport, from the Interlaken Ost station take the train to Lauterbrunnen (about 30 minutes). Then, transfer there to the gondola that goes up to Grutschalp (about 5 minutes). Then, get on the old train to Murren (about 15 minutes). Overall, it's a fun ride with great views. (Alternatively, you can take a different route from Lauterbrunnen station. Take the public bus 141 down the valley to the gondola station near Stechelberg called Schilthornbahn. From here, take 2 gondolas: first to Grimmelwald, then to Murren.)

Murren is a small, car-free town, so you'll get around on foot.
