The leisurely start leads slightly downhill for about five kilometres to Grütschalp. Here you take the lower trail in the direction of Sousläger. This section leads over hill and dale through the forest. It is a gentle up and down, before a short but steep staircase follows. Once you reach the top, continue on the trail until you reach Soustal. Here you turn left in the direction of Marchegg. Now you are in for a steep ascent, a mix of trail and stairs. At the top, you will be rewarded for your efforts with an incredible panorama of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. You now follow a beautiful flow trail for a few kilometres - until you reach a fork. Instead of heading towards Grütschalp, you go up the mountain trail here, which leads for a few kilometres - always with a view of the magnificent mountain range. Later, you pass below the mountain station of the Maulerhubel chairlift and through the Winzerwald forest before the ascent to the Höhenlücke. On the Blumental side, you have several options to get back to Mürren. Or you can extend the trail to a half marathon by adding the North Face Trail and returning to Mürren via Schiltalp.
Partly technical sections. Caution is advised in wet conditions.

From Basel and Geneva, the fastest route to the Jungfrau Region is via Bern. From Zurich, the route via Lucerne and the Brünig Pass is recommended. The pass is open all year round.
From the south, travel to the Jungfrau Region via the Grimsel or Susten Pass. Both passes are only open in summer. An alternative is the Simplon Pass with subsequent car transport through the Lötschberg tunnel.
Mürren is car-free. If we arrive by car, we have to leave it in Lauterbrunnen or Stechelberg and use public transport. The journey from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen takes about 20 minutes, to Stechelberg it is 25 minutes.
In Stechelberg there is a car park directly at the valley station of the Schilthorn cable car. There is a multi-storey car park below the station in Lauterbrunnen. Alternatively, the car park at the Lauterbrunnen church can be used. From here, a bus leaves for the station every half hour. On foot it takes about 10 minutes.
A covered passage leads from the Lauterbrunnen car park to the cable cars in Mürren. The car park in Stechelberg is not covered.
Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run from Basel and Lucerne directly to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich change trains in Bern. The trains run every half hour.
From Interlaken Ost station we reach Mürren in one hour. The blue and yellow train of the Berner Oberland Bahn (BOB) takes us to Lauterbrunnen. We board the front part of the train, as the rear part leaves from Zweilütschinen for Grindelwald. Afterwards we have two options. Via Grütschalp (gondola and train): At Lauterbrunnen station we cross the road and take the gondola to Grütschalp. Here we change to a small train which takes us to Mürren. The journey from Lauterbrunnen to Mürren takes 23 minutes. Or via Stechelberg (bus and gondola): In Lauterbrunnen we take the bus to Stechelberg and ride to the Schilthornbahn station. Here the gondola takes us via Gimmelwald to Mürren in 10 minutes. It takes 32 minutes to cover this distance.
