Make a holiday rental home or chalet in Murren, Switzerland your home away from home

Murren is a picturesque mountain village in the Jungfrau region of Switzerland, which looks like it could have been taken straight out of a fairytale. Snow-topped wooden chalets dot the landscape, nestled against the backdrop of the Schiltorn in a true picture postcard scene. A self-catering holiday home in Murren makes for a delightfully cosy base for skiing in the region.

Things to do in Murren, Switzerland

Murren is the highest ski resort in the Bernese Oberland and there are slopes for all abilities from beginners to advances with snowboarders also well-catered to. There are also plenty of opportunities for cross-country skiing around the town and the nearby river valley.

There are also several things to do off piste. Beginners can learn the basics of curling, and after a bit of practice enter into one of the weekly tournaments. Toboggans can be hired and there are several great runs around the town.

The fun doesn’t end with the ski season however. There are lots of different hiking trails around the area, covering all abilities levels, and all are easily accessed from your Murren self-catering accommodation. A little culture can also be combined with your stroll on one of the historical walks run around the area. For the more adventurous there are also some real mountaineering trails in the nearby mountains.

For something a little more relaxing, families can enjoy a game of mini-golf or take a dip in the town’s open-air swimming pool. At the end of a busy day, visitors can also relax and enjoy dinner with a view at the Piz Gloria revolving restaurant, made famous in the Bond flick “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”.

Places to visit on holiday in Murren, Switzerland

For a day away from the slopes visitors should head to the nearby city of Bern across the border in Germany, recognised as a UNESCO Cultural World Heritage Site. As you would expect, this means there are lots of sights to see around the centre, including the Time Bell clock with moving puppets, a Gothic cathedral, the Bear Pit (minus the bears) and the Federal Palace.

Visitors to Bern can also catch a play at one of the city’s many theatres, and the city also plays host to several festivals in both summer and winter.

Weather in Murren, Switzerland

Summers in Bern can be surprisingly warm, with average temperatures of up to 18C during July and August. Winters are of course much colder, sitting below 0C on most days between December and February. This is of course great for skiing, and Murren has high levels of snowfall throughout the season.

Flights to Murren, Switzerland

Murren is served by Bern Airport (BRN) 72km to the north, which receives flights from British Airways, Air France and Lufthansa on a daily basis. From here visitors will need to take a transfer to the resort. Alternatively, your Murren chalet can be reached by the mountain railway from Lauterbrunnen, or for a more scenic journey, take the aerial cableway from Stechelberg.

The apartment is warm & spacious. One double room & one twin room with plenty of storage for clothes. The bathroom was very modern, plenty of bath linen & a great powerful shower. The apartment has all the equipment you could need, washing machine, dryer, hair dryer, dishwasher. We had friends over for dinner one afternoon & there was plenty of crockery to cater for us all. When you needed some downtime the board games & dvd's kept the kids entertained & there are plenty of tv channels to choose from. Harry had sent me lots of helpful information before we left & he had very patiently & kindly answered all my questions over email. There is lady that meets you & welcomes you called Tina. She was amazingly helpful to us, from texting us to advise us about fireworks that the kids might enjoy to helping us find a chemist on a Sunday. She was an angel & so nice to have someone close by. The location of the apartment is just perfect. You are so close to everything. The camping site is right behind the apartment a 2 minute walk away & there you can find a little shop & a great bar & restaurant. The bus stop to bring you into the village or to the train station stops right outside the apartment & runs regularly & is super reliable. You can walk into the village in 5-10 minutes, where you will find an Irish pub, lots of restaurants & a couple of coffee shops/bakeries. We went to Airtime a couple of times, the brownies were nice but the reception was less than warm & friendly, bordering on rude to be honest. We were beginners at skiing but there is a huge choice of places to go and all easily accessible from the apartment. And lastly I could not talk about this apartment without mentioning the views!! Hence the title, a little piece of heaven. Looking out the back doors of the apartment you are looking at the mountains, I could have sat & stared all day. There's a big green area for the kids to play on & it's nice & safe away from the road. There were some animals opposite the house so our kids loved looking at those. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough & I look forward to visiting again. We went in Winter but it's a place you could visit in both Summer & Winter. Enjoy! Hilary
