As you know already, our Swiss vacation was full of fun - from a super cool hotel room, to Alps views to nature trails and hikes, our trip was unforgettable adventure! On our second day of stay in the village of Mürren, we took a cable car up to Allmendhubel with a expansive view of flower park and the mountains Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The Allmendhubel flower trail has easy hikes for kids with almost 150 kinds of flowers including Alpine roses and Edelweiss dotting the green meadows as far as the eye goes! We spent few hours soaking in the view and breathing in fresh mountain air. (And getting fierce hugs from Mili!)

Crisp, clean mountain air, majestic, snow covered alps peaks, car-free quiet streets, vibrant wildflowers on the side of the roads and a very welcoming small community - that is Mürren for you! A small village with the population of just 450, it is a place that is big in every other way. We chose this heavenly quaint village for our Swiss vacation for its location (the amazing views of the three famous mountains: Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau) and the beautiful mountain trails, some easy enough to hike even with kids. Mürren is easily accessible From Zurich by taking couple of trains (Bahn) and a cable car that shows the beautiful Lauterbrunnen valley while going up.
Our stay was made truly unforgettable by the impeccable hospitality of Hotel Eiger. We loved staying in their famous 'James Bond Suite' with cool decor, sleek furniture and the Bond theme music for a door bell! It was one of the coolest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in!
The James Bond Suite is perfect for a family too as it has two bathrooms and a spacious living area where the couch can be converted into a bed.
You can really feel like a secret agent in this spy-chic space!
The fun part of this bathroom is the mesh curtain along this bathroom area (you can't see that in the picture) It really creates the 'James Bond' ambiance - I felt like a femme fatale plotting her next move in the tub! LOL!
Hotel Eiger offers breathtaking views of the Alps and after a long day of hike and sight seeing, one can relax at the terrace overlooking the mountains. You literally are in the mountains here! The video below was taken from the balcony of our suite.

I got this LOFT dress few months ago on final sale for under $15! I love the comfortable fit and the fact that I can actually wear it even after Summer (I am thinking boots and a big scarf in Fall!)
I hope you all have a happy Monday! I am little under the weather, seems like the vacation withdrawal symptoms! LOL!
