During the summer Gimmelwald is an ideal location to commence stunning hiking tours in the region. In winter, Mürren and the Schilhorn offer you a magnificent ski area catering for all levels of skiers. If skiing is not your thing, there are opportunities for winter hikes and tobogganing.
The Schilthorn, famous as the location for the James Bond movie ‘On her Majesty’s Secret Service’ is accessible year round and offers a breathtaking panorama of the region. The audio-guided tour of the village, which starts at the station, is also highly recommended.
Highway Bern, Thun, Interlaken, then direction Wilderswil, Lauterbrunnen and Stechelberg. There is a spacious car park next to the Schilthorn cablecar station in Stechelberg (parking fee apply). Luggage trolleys are available free of charge.
Take the train to Interlaken Ost. Change train to Lauterbrunnen. From Lauterbrunnen, take the bus to Stechelberg cable car station. Usually, the public transport connections and timetables are very reliable in Switzerland.

Afterwards, hourly until 11.45pm. Friday and Saturday nights there is an additional service at 12.55am. Gimmelwald is the first stop – the ride takes about 5 minutes.
