After many years of mountain biking in the Alps, every trail is discovered, especially with the internet at our finger tips. Discovering these secret trails is a near impossible! You are mistaken! In Mürren you can still discover thesehidden gems.

From Mürren, the asphalt road runs behind the Schilthorn Gondola station to Gimmelwald. The road quickly rises quite steeply. From Gimmelwald the natural road to Schiltalp begins, where the official bike trail ends. Before the 30 minutes passage to Wasenegg begins, the hiking trail leads to the river Schiltbach.

When you arrive on the ridge, a wooden bench and an unbelievable panoramic view will entice you to stay. The fun single trail continues along the slope towards the Rotstock hut. There, you canstop for refreshments and sample the local snacks on offer. Homemade cakes provide the necessary energy for the upcoming descent. Rock slabs, stepped passages, meadows and woods alternate constantly.

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 directly from Basel and Lucerne to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich have to change in Berne. The trains run every half hour.

Getting there

By car: There are different ways to reach the region by car. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Berne. The fastest route from Zurich is through Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.

From the south, the route leads over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the route via Simplon Pass and then use Lötschberg car transport.

Parking

In Lauterbrunnen, there is a covered car park, linked with the BLM cable car station. You may also drive to the Schilthornbahn station in Stechelberg where you will find a large number of parking spaces. 

The Lauterbrunnen car park is located at the outskirts of the village, just before the train station. Parking spaces can be reserved for a minimum of 5 days (winter) online.
