The compact and car-free nature of Murren make it a lovely place to spend a holiday together. Add in the quaint mountain railway, the spectacular views and the friendly locals and you have a great setting for a family holiday. The youngest children, from age two, can be cared for in the non-ski nursery in the sports centre. Bookings with or without lunch cover are available but must be made by 5pm the previous afternoon, ideally sooner to secure your place. Ski lessons are available for children aged four and over and the compact size of the local ski area makes it well suited to family groups.
