We already had our first snowfalls! The preparations for the winter are in full swing.
After a beautiful summer, Mürren deserves a few quieter weeks: we are in the mid-season.
The Schilthorn can only be visited on weekends, a few hotels are still open and most restaurants have temporarily closed their doors.
But the fresh mountain air, the view of the Eiger Mönch and Jungfrau and the peace and quiet in the car-free mountain village are there for you every day.

Duty to wear masks
Wearing a protective mask in public transport, in all indoor public spaces and in outdoor locations where the minimum distance of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained is mandatory throughout Switzerland. This includes railway stations, shops, sports centres (except in training areas), churches, restaurants and bars and more. In restaurants the mask may only be taken off when sitting at a table.
There is no obligation to wear a mask on chairlifts and chair-lifts. The cantons have different regulations on additional mask requirements.
Scarves, bandanas or the collar of a jumper are not considered to be approved masks.
Masks are available in the Coop supermarket, in souvenir shops and at all serviced stations of the Schilthorn and Jungfrau Railways.
Mürren and Gimmelwald are accessible as usual. The gondola between Mürren and the Schilthorn is only in operation on weekends.
The Allmendhubelbahn will be operating again from 11 December.
All operations operate in compliance with the protection concept. There are no restrictions on the number of people transported on the lifts.
Hotels, restaurants and shops are open. Sometimes the number of guests allowed is limited. The companies work in compliance with the protection concepts.
