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.

For our last full day in Murren, we decided to hop around to other towns in the area. We took our handy Swiss travel passes and headed down the mountain on the train. We arrived at the cable car station and I observed and photographed the unloading again. I think I did a better job of capturing how they move things. A lot of the people following …
Today was the day we went up the Schilthorn. After breakfast this morning we walked to the other end of town and boarded the cable car going up the mountain. Be aware that we are staying at around 5600 feet and the place we are going up to is a hair less than 10000. Not as tall as the Gornergrat, but still pretty tall!
We ride up to the …

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. But it went well, and we got to the station, to board another small train to Murren.
This is the town that really started ...
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 ...
