    Summary

    Mürren is one of our favourite resorts. There may be other mountain villages that are equally pretty, but none of them enjoys views like those from Mürren across the deep valley to the rock faces and glaciers of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau: simply breathtaking. Then there’s the Schilthorn run – 1300m vertical with an unrivalled combination of varied terrain and glorious views.

    But our visits are normally one-day affairs; those staying for a week are likely to want to explore the extensive intermediate slopes of Wengen and Grindelwald, across the valley. And that takes time.

    It was in Mürren that the British more or less invented modern skiing. Sir Arnold Lunn organized the first ever slalom race here in 1922. Some 12 years earlier his father, Sir Henry, had persuaded the locals to open the railway in winter so that he could bring the first winter package tour here. Sir Arnold’s son Peter was a regular visitor for 95 years, until his death in 2011.
