JUNGFRAU REGION RAILWAYS

Mürrenbahn – Lauterbrunnen-Murren Mountain Railway

Murrenbahn Cable Car LauterbrunnenThe Bergbahn Lauterbrunnen-Mürren (BLM) is a mountain railway of the Jungfrau Region of the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland, connecting the Alpine villages of Lauterbrunnen with Mürren (and the Schiltorn-Piz Gloria aerial cable). The first section from Lauterbrunnen to Grutschalp is by cable car, and the route to Murren is by train. The route was first opened in 1891 and the original funicular up from the valley floor was replaced with a cable car in 2006. It’s a relatively short trip, only about 4 miles in total distance, but with very scenic views of the three peaks of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau range as the train climbs along the forested ledge above the Lauterbrunnen valley toward Mürren. If traveling with luggage to stay overnight at the hotels in Murren, the railway loads the bags onto an under carriage of the tram car and on the train for you to retrieve on arrival.

Murrenbahn Mountain Railway Lauter5brunnen ValleyThe Mürrenbahn Aerial Tram station is located just opposite the main train station of Lauterbrunnen, where the Berner Oberland Bahn trains from Interlaken Ost connect with the trains of the Wengeralpbahn to Kleine Scheidegg (and on to the Jungfraujoch) and Grindelwald, on the opposite sides of the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The route operates generally in daylight hours, the first runs about 6 am and the last around 7 pm. Individual ride tickets or multi-ride tickets for the Mürrenbahn can be purchased at the tram station or Murren station. Ticket price is 10. CHF one way and 20.80 CHF round trip. The Mürrenbahn cable car and train are included free with a Swiss Pass or other rail pass.
