Murren Switzerland

The last stop on our 2 week vacation was Murren Switzerland. Murren is located in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland. The Bernese Oberland is one of the greatest tourist attractions in the world due to it's beautiful location within the Alps. The town of Murren sits on a high plateau above the Lauterbrunnen Valley at 5300ft. Murren is the highest year-round inhabitated village in the Bernese Oberland. It is about 40 mn south of Interlaken and no cars are allowed. The only way to get to Murren is by aerial cable way or train.

We really enjoyed our stay here as the setting was very quiet and the views were magnificent. It didn't bother us at all that the hotel upgraded us to a 2 bedroom apartment with a balcony facing all the mountains either!! Mark and I would sit out on our balcony until 10:30 at night (it stayed light that long) and just enjoy the quietness and beautiful sights. This by far, was our favorite place of our entire vacation. The pictures do not capture the true beauty of the place. But I've posted some pictures of our hotel and the views from our balcony.
