Welcome to Hotel Mittaghorn
Other options for eating in Gimmelwald include the mountain hostel (Pizza 16CHF) and the Pension Gimmelwald (Reopened in 2009 under new management).
In either direction the journey normally takes 55mins, using a combination of train, bus and cable car.
From the cable car station, walk up the hill and into the village. At the "crossroads" a sign points to the right (and up) to "Hotel Mittaghorn. (5min)"
Tip: If you are spending 3,4 or more days in Gimmelwald and particularly if you plan to do excursions, the local BeoAbo pass for the cable car costs 59CHF (Zones 106 and 116) and is valid between Lauterbrunnen, Stechelberg, Gimmelwald, Muerren, Grutschalp and covers 2 cable cars, a train and the postbus. This pass is actually valid for a month but can sometimes save money (and definitely increases flexibility) for even short stays. Buy it in Lauterbrunnen on arrival. Another alternative is the Schilthornbahn 6 Day Holiday pass. It covers the same region, but also includes the cable car to the top of the mountain (normally approx 70CHF return from Muerren). This pass costs 135CHF (2008/9).
Families with children 16 or under will usually benefit by purchasing the swiss family card (20CHF each child). With this pass children travel free when travelling with their parents (all trains and cable cars).
The Cable Car runs from 06:00 in the morning until midnight, every half hour during the day and hourly from 8pm. The following table shows full connections from Interlaken (OST station) for those travelling by rail.
TIMETABLE VALID 09 DEC 07 to 13 DEC 09:
Important: For a 7-10 day period during late April the Schilthornbahn cable car Stechelberg-Gimmelwald-Muerren is closed for maintenance - please check the schilthornbahn website for exact dates. The Schilthornbahn provides an alternative but limited service to Gimmelwald using other transport.
