Brilliant. The bathroom was a bit small, I had to sort of walk round the toilet to get to the shower, but the room itself was fine and the rest of the hotel was fine. I had no problem with the food at all, breakfast was good and the evening meal was good. They cater for veggies as well. The hotel is near to th... + more

We update Hotel Alpenruh's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

Stunning location Chocolate-box village Fascinating history Jungfrau ski area

Mürren is a gorgeous little village perched on the side of the majestic Schilthorn, accessible only by cog-railway or gondola. The area is steeped in remarkable history and today it still has much to offer visitors – mesmerizing vistas of some of the most iconic mountains in the world, fantastic skiing, and lots of fun activities for little (and big) kids.

Beautiful Mürren: one of the oldest and most distinguished resorts in the Alps alongside neighbouring Wengen, thanks to its fascinating mountaineering history and the long-running cog railway – incidentally one of the first ski lifts in Europe. It’s a classic and captivating ski destination that should be on the bucket list of every discerning skier or boarder. The quintessential picture-postcard village sits on a sunny plateau, nestled on the edge of a dramatic precipice overlooking the Lauterbrunnen valley....
Mürren has its own 50km ski area on the Schilthorn and surrounds, although if you’re here for a week you’ll probably want to get the Sportpass Jungfrau which gives you access to the entire 213km region. There are two nursery slopes nearby, one in town (in front of the Jungfrau Hotel with a small drag lift and the Snowli Kids Centre) and the other up on Allmenhubel, where there’s a good restaurant for those obligatory hot chocolate breaks. Another feather to the town’s proverbial hat is its relatively hig...
For a quiet little mountain village, Mürren still delivers when it comes to decent restaurants and bars. When in Rome (or rather Switzerland…) you should obviously try a traditional fondue, so seek out a cosy restaurant – Eigerstübli in Hotel Eiger is a good one – and share a delicious pot of melted cheesy goodness, all washed down with some local white wine. Another unexpected but good choice is a little Chinese fast food place in town called ‘Tham Kok Keong’. Up on the mountain there are lots of nice hu...

"The swiss scenery and efficiency is the reason I keep returning to Murren"

Brilliant. The bathroom was a bit small, I had to sort of walk round the toilet to get to the shower, but the room itself was fine and the rest of the hotel was fine. I had no problem with the food at all, breakfast was good and the evening meal was good. They cater for veggies as well. The hotel is near to the skiing – you have to get the funicular up to Murren when you arrive so you are already up there. The hotel is located in between the funicular and the gondola, so you can choose which ski area you prefer depending on your level of skiing.
