Advice for guests in the car-free villages

The stay in our mountain villages should be as pleasant and relaxing as possible. Actually, everything here works quite simply. Of course you only have to know how. We are happy to help you with this.

Getting around in the region

For foreign guests we recommend the purchase of the Swiss Travel Pass. This is the all-in-one ticket for train, bus and boat throughout Switzerland.
We recommend also having a look at the offers on schilthorn.ch.

Mürren is a very small mountain village and everything is reachable within walking distance. Useful information can be found on Google Maps.

A detailed terrain map of the whole of Switzerland with markings for hiking and biking routes can be found here.

Travelers Wifi

You want to send a selfie with the mountain view? Skyping with your family during the hike?

They are available at the Tourist Information Office.

Public Wifi is available free of charge in almost all hotels, restaurants and public buildings.
