A Bike Ride—and Delicious Reward—in Mürren
The village of Mürren, which perches on a broad plateau about 1,000 feet over the Lauterbrunnen Valley, is easily one of Switzerland’s most picturesque destinations. It’s also an incredible place to bike ride. Sign up for a mountain-bike tour with a local guide—ask at the local visitors center or at your hotel to find one—and you can zoom down well-marked, not-too-technical trails on the 007 Classic Tour. This three-hour, mostly downhill route takes its name from the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, which was filmed here in 1969; it wanders from Mürren to Stechelberg and Lauterbrunnen, passing gorgeous scenery all the way. From Lauterbrunnen you can take a cable car and train ride train back to Mürren—and reward yourself with a rich, traditional cheese fondue, served with toasted bread cubes and accompanied by kirsch (a cherry brandy) at the Taverne, a cozy wood and brick restaurant next to the cable car station.
