Mürren – hideaway for 007 agents

The Mürren-Schilthorn region is the smallest and least known of the three ski areas around the famous Jungfraujoch. In my opinion it is also the one with the most stunning views of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau from the Schilthorn – famous out of the James Bond Movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”.

I guess you all agree that skiing face to face with Switzerland’s most famous mountain is a mind-blowing experience.

Some of the best restaurants are located just next to the slopes. Make sure to check out Chez Vrony, Findlerhof, Stafelalp, Paradies and Cervo for Après Ski to only name a few.
