The highlight of our stays in Switzerland! This is a small hotel with a dozen or so rooms. The couple that own and run it live on site and do a fantastic job of taking care of things. If I were going to Murren, this hotel (and the restaurant) would be at the top of my list. The views from the rooms are fantastic (we had a balcony), the food in the restaurant was superb. I personally recommend the pork sausage with onion sauce and rosti as a side. The deserts were just as great. When we requested a cup of hot water so my wife could have tea in the room, they gave us a thermos full of hot water so she could make as much tea as she wanted. They were always friendly, offered advice, directions, and anything else needed. Yes, it's a two star hotel, but it has 5 star owners. Impeccably clean, superbly managed.

Today was our first full day in Wengen. We got up at a reasonable time, had a traditional breakfast, and went looking for trouble. We took a cogwheel train down to Lauterbrunnen, to hop on our first cable car. We didn't realize it was standing room only.

Woke up leisurely today and we packed our stuff and drove about 3 hours up to mürren - it's in the Swiss alps! Where all the ski fiends are in the winter! It's so awesome up here, bit cold though, even though it's summer it's not very warm up here, we are so high up. It's a bit more than 1654m high!! We had to catch a gondola up to the top as cars can not drive up the mountains, ...
... then came back up to the Schilthorn to meet us. Alex and I skied the same runs as Ruth and I had completed earlier in the day and we all met up on the cable car to the Schilthorn where we were planning lunch.
The Schilthorn is a revolving restaurant which gives ever-changing views of the Alps as you eat your meal. The boys enjoyed their 007 themed pasta dish before we headed down to the observation deck to look at the mountains. JJ went into the ...
... funicular and tramway. It too was in the clouds so the view wasn't good from the very top but beautiful most of the way up. We had soup and salad in the revolving restaurant at the top. We walked though the village of Murren and took pictures of the village and parasailers above us
When we got back to town, I talked Mom into some apple strudel at Harder Klum. You have to take ...
Down we go into the valley. It gets warmer and the sun filters through brighter now and then. The valley is quite beautiful. Green and lush. The sound of cow bells comes our way several times as we pass a hillside pasture. The waterfalls also add to the sounds as the water, falling from so high, almost creates a shower type effect where it hits the ground. This place looks familiar. It comes to me just why ...
