Mürren is a beautiful, cosy little alpine village at the foot of the Schilthorn; British visitors have been coming to this resort over many years. Set in the Bernese Oberland on a sunny plateau and approachable by cable car or funicular railway (closed this summer) only, the village is completely traffic free and therefore ideal for families with young children. You will enjoy the spectacular views, especially looking across the valley to Wengen, Kleine Scheidegg and Jungfrau.
