Chillaxing in Murren in the Swiss Oberland
Travelling in this beautiful part of Switzerland is shockingly expensive. Our mid-range hotel was just about ok but unremarkable, but food was a real letdown everywhere, and expensive. Coffee like dishwater and $7 for a cappuccino. You’re better off renting an apartment and self catering. Pick of the villages in the valley is Murren, located on the shelf above the valley floor, with sensational mountain views, reached via the train from Lauterbrunnen. There’s an indoor pool and spa in the town, handy for rainy days and post-hiking chillax.
