The thing about mountains is the cold weather and the hot food. After tasting the rösti from our hike into the Swiss mountains, we are now at another mountainous area. The first thing you see when you step off the train at Mürren, is to check out the view from the side of the train station which is located on the cliff face. Those without a fear of heights should just look down and admire the view.

We were already hungry from our trek, so this was the perfect place to keep warm and to keep our stomachs full. All that walking has really worked up our appetite and we are eager to give the rösti another try.
You can even stay here if you prefer to have a place in the mountains. Imagine waking up to the views of the Jungfrau. That’s life, if you have the appetite for it.
We were the only tourists at the Eiger during lunch hour. Kind of strange but in a small town like Mürren, there aren’t really that many customers. And furthermore, there are other establishment that serves other food. So just maybe, today wasn’t a day for rösti. But we weren’t going to be disappointed.
If you’re a fan of cheese and potatoes, rösti is the food for you. Not only is it filling, it’s appetizing. The rösti is cooked to a golden brownish colour and some crispy edges. Top it up with whatever that you prefer, bacon, veal, chicken, eggs. And presto, you have your dish right in front of you. We are not used to the cold weather here in the mountainous regions, so with the heat generated from the food, we have the fuel to keep burning. So to speak.
