After a short steep climb on the road, you turn left onto a forest trail that leads across beautiful fields before the short but steep descent towards the Sprutz Waterfall begins. Its roar can already be heard from a distance. After a short descent down the stairs, you walk behind the mighty waterfall. You now face a steep ascent in the direction of Spilboden. Once here, walk on the left side of the stream to a bridge, which you cross. Turn onto the North Face Trail. There is another short, steep climb towards Schiltalp. Here it flattens out for the first time. The view in good weather is breathtaking. But soon it's back down to Suppenalp, where you cross the field behind the restaurant. You continue towards Allmendhubel, but be careful, in the lower third of the bob sled run you have to turn left onto the trail up to the Höhenlücke. At the top, the trail goes down again immediately. Take the first trail on the right to the bottom station Allmiboden. About 150 m after the bottom station, turn right onto the upper Panorama trail. Enjoy this flow trail - and don't forget to turn left at the big barn onto the lower Panorama trail. Now a small climb and you're back at the starting point. Destination reached!

Getting There

Public transport

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run from Basel and Lucerne directly to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich change trains in Bern. The trains run every half hour.

From Interlaken Ost station we reach Mürren in one hour. The blue and yellow train of the Berner Oberland Bahn (BOB) takes us to Lauterbrunnen. We board the front part of the train, as the rear part leaves from Zweilütschinen for Grindelwald. Afterwards we have two options. Via Grütschalp (gondola and train): At Lauterbrunnen station we cross the road and take the gondola to Grütschalp. Here we change to a small train which takes us to Mürren. The journey from Lauterbrunnen to Mürren takes 23 minutes. Or via Stechelberg (bus and gondola): In Lauterbrunnen we take the bus to Stechelberg and ride to the Schilthornbahn station. Here the gondola takes us via Gimmelwald to Mürren in 10 minutes. It takes 32 minutes to cover this distance.

Getting there

From Basel and Geneva, the fastest route to the Jungfrau Region is via Bern. From Zurich, the route via Lucerne and the Brünig Pass is recommended. The pass is open all year round.

From the south, travel to the Jungfrau Region via the Grimsel or Susten Pass. Both passes are only open in summer. An alternative is the Simplon Pass with subsequent car transport through the Lötschberg tunnel.

Mürren is car-free. If we arrive by car, we have to leave it in Lauterbrunnen or Stechelberg and use public transport. The journey from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen takes about 20 minutes, to Stechelberg it is 25 minutes.

Arrival Lauterbrunnen

Parking

In Stechelberg there is a car park directly at the valley station of the Schilthorn cable car. There is a multi-storey car park below the station in Lauterbrunnen. Alternatively, the car park at the Lauterbrunnen church can be used. From here, a bus leaves for the station every half hour. On foot it takes about 10 minutes.
