We are staying in Murren.

Is it possible to go round trip to Zermatt in one day allowing for sight seeing along the way?

You can certainly get travel from Mürren to Zermatt and back in a day. How much sight seeing depends on when you leave and when want to get back.

Use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to work out how long the trip will take.

At least one direction you should consider going via Kandersteg. It will add about 1 hour on top of the faster route but will avoid the quite long Lötschberg Base Tunnel as you will travel between Spiez and Brig on the Regio-Express Lötschberger train over the traditional, more than 100 year old scenic mountain route, giving you a wonderful view along the impressive peaks and down into the Rhone Valley.

Hi Rockoyster-

<<"t will add about 1 hour on top of the faster route but will avoid the quite long Lötschberg Base Tunnel and travel between Spiez and Brig on the Regio-Express Lötschberger train over the traditional, more than 100 year old scenic mountain route, giving you a wonderful view along the impressive peaks and down into the Rhone Valley.">>

Seems a bit unclear. How will it avoid travel between Spiez and Brig on the Lötschberger?
