Full description

The car-free mountain resort of Wengen is situated in the heart of Bernese Oberland. It lies gently at the foot of Jungfrau at an altitude of 1274 metres. This sunshine village's life is centred on the railway.

It is reachable from Wengernalp - the running train station in Lauterbrunnen. Either, from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg, later to Wengen. The marvellous journey up the mountainside to Wengen is enjoyable and full of scenic views.

The Swiss Village of Wengen has been attracting tourists since the early 19th century, by becoming a touristic centre from a simple Alpine farming community. The world-famous authors Percy Bysshe Shelley and George Gordon Byron described the magnificent scenery of the village in their publications, which had a great impact on tourism development in this region.

The reward that you get from this village is the opportunity of regenerating your power by taking a fabulous walk through the awesome sights. Otherwise, you can get around by an electric vehicle to and from the station that runs through several hotels in Wengen.

Wengen tours catch the attention of people with all tastes and interests. You can travel to Wengen to inhale the clear mountain air far away from the daily pollution. Upon arrival, start your trip by strolling in the village. From here, the elegant hotels, Swiss chalet-style buildings, and the cosy timber houses will amaze you. These houses date back to “Belle Epoque,” which will give you an impression of being in a fairy tale. This idyllic holiday village will fill you with optimism, inner peace, and prosperity typical of that beautiful age.

The ideal time to visit the quintessential ski resort is when it wears a beautiful snowy dress. This heavenly place offers two adjacent ski areas with 155 miles for exploration.

Wengen holidays are a typical solution for families or groups who aren’t experienced skiers. Beginners can start with easy to medium-difficulty pistes, while more skillful ones will have access to all ski areas of the Jungfrau Region. The clean air and long hours of sunshine will help you to enjoy the scenery across the valley, especially when the famous trio of the Monch, Jungfrau, and Eiger comes fully into view.

A huge part of Wengen is the amazing nightlife at the bars, where you can spend the time ordering drinks and listening to great music.

During the summer, you can enjoy 500km of marked walking trails or take one of 15 mountain cableways to reach the most stunning vantage points in the region, proved to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Those fond of more active rest can try paragliding or canyoning.

Join AlpExcursion for such an unforgettable experience during a private transfer accompanied by an expert driver, who will lead you to this incredible piece of Switzerland.
