View of Blümlisalp from atop the Schilthorn in the Berner Oberland, Swiss Alps
The view from atop the Schilthorn is magnificent; it provides the best view of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau and a stunning panorama that includes 200 peaks including Blüemlisalp shown here. I was hoping for a clear day to see the mountains, I was not disappointed, the mountains were magnificent. The cable car up the Schilthorn starts in Muren and is an experience in its self; to reach the Schilthorn you must transfer from one cable car to another. The view on the way up is as spectacular as from on top. You can get to Muren by train from anywhere in Switzerland using the famous Swiss Tran system.

I was there in summer and am now planning another trip for winter time to see the mountains covered in snow.
