A Weekend in Mürren – Easter Edition

Jungfrau Region’s Blogbuster Series / Nr. 05

Once upon a time there was a place up in the Bernese Alps..

Surrounded by giant mountains and nestled in a unique landscape. A place without cars but with a fantastic view to the famous Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau instead. 

410 inhabitants, 1 supermarket, two and a half men - oh, i meant bars, sorry. 2 and a half bars (Gondelbar is only open during winter season).  Located at 1650 metres above sea level, overlooking and almost floating above the Lauterbrunnen Valley. Sounds like out of a fairy-tale? Well, it’s not. It’s the charming, alpine village called Mürren characterized by the typical wooden chalets and its authentic ambiance.

We thought about what we would want to be doing once we manage to sneak away from the family’s Easter brunch. So here’s our (hypothetical) itinerary if, somehow, we get bored wherever we spend the Easter break. Don’t worry, it’ll stay between us if you don’t show up at the traditional Easter lunch with your great great-grandma. Just make sure to come up with a good excuse or even better - bring along your family and friends and enjoy Mürren together with the following easter specials.

#Easter-Fun at the Alpine Sports Centre

Easter Fun! Dive into the swimming pool, find your easter egg and get a surprise! We really don’t know if they hid easter eggs in the swimming pool - but you’ll find out.

#Easter-brunch

Enjoy brunch from 8 till 11am on 21st of April at the Grütschalp Station and be part of the Easter Egg Hunt between Grütschalp, Winteregg und Mürren. Perfect way to avoid food coma ;)


Obviously, Mürren has way more to offer than just fabulous Easter Specials. It’s actually pretty splendid throughout the whole spring time. I’m not even going to mention the way it all starts to sparkle once the first soft rays of sun hit the village when the sun rose over the Kleine Scheidegg. Maybe a last bit of snow left - a reminder of a gorgeous winter - and spring flowers blossoming at the same time - you will want to see it! Trust me on that one.

So, since we don’t want you to miss out on all the fun and beauty, we’re happy to provide you with spring activities that’ll cheer up even the most fanatic winter lovers:

Thrill Walk

Thrill Walk: A cliff pathway under Birg cableway station. A spine-tingling mountain experience of superlatives!

Igloo-Village

Fondue evening at the igloo-village

50 years James Bond anniversary

Enjoy a Dry Martini first, then go for the famous 007-Burger at the 360°-Restaurant Piz Gloria. To top it all off, visit the Bond World and the Bond Cinema afterwards. Be prepared to take a journey back in time with smart heroes and stunning girls.

Also:

  • Is it your birthday? Make no mistake, we will want you there and celebrate with you. You will ride up all the way to Schilthorn from Stechelberg or Mürren and back FOR FREE!
  • The cable car and all the stations in the Schilthorn area are wheelchair-friendly
  • You can take your dog with you on the Schilthorn cableway – no extra charge. We wouldn’t want you to spend the day without a man’s best friend.

If you feel like extending winter as long as you can and enjoying the slopes, be our guest:
The Ski-Area Birg-Schilthorn is open until 22nd of April and also on the weekend of 27th and 28th of April.

Last but not least: Mürren isn’t just great in spring, check out the summer activities here
