Hi,

We plan to use e-bikes to tour the length of the Lauterbrunnen valley. When we get to Stechelberg we want to take a detour to Murren (geting there by cable cars). Is it better to leave our bikes at the cable car station or can we take it on the cable car with us? (assuming the Lauterbrunnen bike shop will give us locks? :-)

Thank you!

Hi Sia Sia,

I am not sure that the bike shops will give you locks too, but surely you can buy locks there. Maybe contact them in advance so there won't be a surprise.

You can leave your (locked) bikes in Lauterbrunnen. If you want to use your bikes in Mürren, you can take them with you too. Be aware that the same price applies to the bicycle as for an adult person. Bicycles are transported along the entire route Lauterbrunnen-Grütschalp-Winteregg-Mürren.

Take care,

Ildiko

For historical reasons, the BLM railway route takes bikes on the whole line (even though for purely geographical reasons, the Lauterbrunnen - Grutschalp section is now a cable car). However once you are at Grutschalp you are in 'bikeable' territory anyway so you don't need to use the train along the ledge to Murren

Interesting. So it's possible to take a bike on Stechelberg to Murren tramway and then bike from Murren to Grutschalp (looks fairly flat?) and then take our bikes down with us on the Grutschalp to Lauterbrunnen cable car?

Hi,

Here is a link about the bike trail of Stechelberg to Mürren: www.ride.ch/de/touren/muerren-stechelberg. Only in German, but please use Google Translator. Mürren – Gimmelwald – Wasserbrigg – Stechelberg is just part of the route, not the whole.

At jungfrauregion.swiss/en/summer/see-and-do/activities/mountainbike/bike-transport/, you can read about where you can take your bike with you.

I hope this helps,

Ildiko
