Accessibility Description:

I gave the Mürren and Schilthorn Mountain Peak Accessible Gondola Tour a 5 Star Sage Accessibility Rating which is our highest accessibility rating. It uses step-free routes throughout the tour, and the transportation system of a train, a bus, and four gondolas means that disabled tour participants don’t have to walk/roll long distances. The terrain is generally flat, and the tour has been designed to include accessible rest rooms along the way.

This tour uses an accessible train (shown below on the left) and a bus with a wheelchair ramp (shown below on the right)

Multiple gondolas are also used during this accessible tour. They have step-free access to board them (shown below).

Your tour guide will lead you along an accessible route that includes elevators (shown below on the left) and wheelchair accessible restrooms (shown below on the right).

The observation deck on Schilthorn (shown below on the left) and the town of Mürren (shown below on the right) are primarily flat. Mürren does have some hills where manual wheelchair users might want assistance.

There is beautiful scenery in all directions, so get your camera ready!

Another excellent tour to also take is the Accessible Jungfraujoch Glacier and Top of Europe Tour. If you are looking for a shorter accessible tour you may be interested in the Wheelchair Accessible Private Tour of Interlaken Town.
