The Birg Restaurant sits at 2676m on the slopes of the Schilthorn, overlooking Mürren in the Jungfrau mountain area of the Bernese Oberland Alps in Switzerland. It provides a refreshing break both for skiers in the winter and mountain walkers in the summer, with stunning views over the Bernese Alps.
Birg is reached by cable car from Mürren and visitors can either alight here or change and continue up the mountain to the Piz Gloria revolving restaurant at the top of the Schilthorn. In summer time numerous walking trails depart from Birg. During the winter months it is also served by the Engetal drag lift. A blue-graded ski run descends from here to either the bottom of the ski lift or to the Obere Hubel runs and Schilthornhütte restaurant.
Visible from Birg are the peaks of Titlis (3238m), Jungfrau (4158m), Mönch (4107m), Eiger (3970m), Morgenhorn (3623m), Weisse Frau (3630m), Blümlisalp (3657m) and Hundshorn (2928m). These panoramas are also displayed with an interactive Jungfrau Ski and Piste Map where you will find more information about this ski resort.
