even after reading the information on taking the train from lauterbrunnen to Murren, i am still confused. is it one train or many trains and how long does the trip take? i checked the train schedule and it says 23 mns. but then in another place, it says over 2 hours. Please help clarify for me. thank you

Hi Nguyenmychau,

How to get to Mürren is explained on our Mürren page here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/murren/travel

  • via Stechelberg takes 32 minutes
  • via Grütschalp is 23 minutes

Those details can be found on the timetable: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable

Most people make it a round trip can go up one way and back the other. :)

Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg is by bus, then gondola to Murren. The other route is by cogwheel.

We took one route up and another down. You would walk a few blocks thru the village.

If you take the BLM train (a one carriage electric unit) from Murren make sure you sit on the right; the views are spectacular.

Enjoy your travels!

>> where you going from Murren on the BLM train?

The BLM (Bergbahn Lauterbrunnen–Mürren = Lauterbrunnen-Mürren mountain railway) just runs a short stretch taking almost 15 minutes, between Mürren and Grütschalp (above Lauterbrunnen).

It makes one intermediate stop at Winteregg, where there is a restaurant and a children's playground with wonderful views.

At the Grütschalp station, you get a cable car down to Lauterbrunnen.
