The Allmendhubelbahn and the town of Mürren

Seilbahn Mürren Allmendhubel (SMA), also Allmendhubelbahn, is a funicular in Bernese Oberland in Switzerland.

The Allmendhubelbahn was brought into service in 1912, in order to simplify trade with other communes. It was soon used by many tourists and mountain hikers, and in the winter by skiers. It begins in Mürren (at 46°33′39″N 7°53′34″E / 46.5607°N 7.8928°E / 46.5607; 7.8928 (Allmendhubelbahn station at Mürren)Coordinates: 46°33′39″N 7°53′34″E / 46.5607°N 7.8928°E / 46.5607; 7.8928 (Allmendhubelbahn station at Mürren) 1,650 m or 5,413 ft above sea level) with a maximum upward gradient of 61% up to the Allmendhubel (at 46°33′50″N 7°53′20″E / 46.564°N 7.889°E / 46.564; 7.889 (Allmendhubel station) 1,907 m or 6,257 ft). The 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in) gauge line is 551 m (1,808 ft) long.

In 1999 the old red cars were replaced by new panoramic cars.
