Bergbahn Lauterbrunnen-Mürren AG – Top of Family

The Lauterbrunnen-Mürren Rail & Cableway links Lauterbrunnen with the holiday resort of Mürren. An aerial cableway travels from Lauterbrunnen to the Grütschalp summit station, where passengers change to the narrow-gauge railway to reach the Winteregg Restaurant and Mürren. Four rail cars from 1966/1967 and an old-fashioned 1913 motor coach run on this route.

The aerial cableway can carry 100 persons in one cabin. The narrow-gauge railway is four kilometres long with a maximum gradient of 5 per cent. It is a single-track railway with a crossing point at Winteregg station. The aerial cableway trip takes around 4 minutes, the travel time on the narrow-gauge railway from Grütschalp to Mürren is 12 minutes.

Adhesion Route Renewal

The last threshold was laid on November 10, 2023 on the completely rebuilt route of the Grütschalp-Mürren adhesion railway. This marked the end of the six-year construction project, which cost 63 million francs and also included a lot of work within the framework of the Equal Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities Act. The new rolling stock will not be complete and in use until June 2024. As is well known, several suppliers to the manufacturer Stadler Rail reported delivery bottlenecks as a result of the war in Ukraine and the pandemic. Two of the three new multiple units will not arrive until May 2024; commissioning is planned for June 2024. The first trainset was delivered at the end of October 2023. The new multiple units meet the requirements of the Equal Opportunity for Persons with Disabilities Act and – thanks to their higher speed – will sometimes be able to run every quarter of an hour.

Freight traffic

The aerial cableway can transport up to six tonnes of freight. Fully loaded, the cabin weighs 26 tonnes. The mountain station contains a modern transfer station, where freight is moved to the narrow-gauge railway. An average of 5,000 tonnes of materials are transported every year. Depending on the building requirements in Mürren, this quantity may be doubled.
