No roads lead to pretty Wengen (the only traffic being the little electric trolleys carrying goods) ... the village is reached by a scenic mountain railway which winds its way up in around 14 minutes from Lauterbrunnen in the valley below.
Wengen is the epitome of a charming and unspoilt village, lying on a sunny plateau with spectacular views to the high Alps. The village offers wooden chalets and relaxed atmosphere. Together with the backdrop of the Eiger and Jungfrau mountains, a great choice of long established hotels, cosy stüblis and lively bars Wengen is many skiers' idea of the perfect winter resort. The exciting Lauberhorn race (Men's World Cup) is held here every year: 17-19 January in 2020.

Jungfrau ski region Some of the finest skiing in the Alps is spread out below the mighty Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains which tower 4,158m above the vast 206km ski area. To the east are the sunny slopes of 'Grindelwald First' whilst to the west is the superb 15km run from the 2,970m summit of the Schilthorn down to Lauterbrunnen.
Kleine Scheidegg- Männlichen This superb ski area is situated between Wengen and Grindelwald and is reached by frequent trains and cable cars. Ski runs fan out from Kleine Scheidegg in different directions, well suited to the beginner or intermediate skier, or you can take the chair lift up to the Lauberhorn at 2,472m where there are more challenging runs. At Fallboden there is a wonderful ski run below the north face of the Eiger. Take the lift up to Eigergletscher and try the 'Black Rock' run or the exhilarating piste that answers to the name of 'Oh God'! From Kleine Scheidegg you can also work your way across to the Männlichen (2,230m) with a series of long runs and various lifts, stopping en-route for a drink or a bratwurst at one of the snow bars. On the Männlichen, there are wide open slopes above the tree line and some steeper slopes with moguls.
The main Kleine Scheidegg restaurant is particularly good with a large sun terrace and spectacular views of the Jungfrau. The terrace of the restaurant up at Eigergletscher also affords stunning views and good food. Just above Scheidegg is the Grindelwaldblick restaurant - take the Lauberhorn chair lift and then ski the piste that leads down to the restaurant. The Männlichen restaurant also features plenty of seating inside and out.
Grindelwald-First A series of interconnecting lifts and runs offer 50km of prepared pistes and there are three different 8km runs back down to Grindelwald. The First is also great for adventure: experience the 'First Flyer' zip wire or take a scenic walk along the amazing Cliff Walk by Tissot. You can eat here in the restaurant with a view of the north face of the Eiger.
Ski hire Our recommended ski hire shop is in the centre of the village.
Shops & cafés There are plenty friendly places in the village where you can buy souvenirs or treat yourself to coffee and cake.
Walking Network of 100km of prepared paths kept open all winter including a snowshoe trail from Wengen via the Hunnenfluh to the Leiterhorn. Try taking the train up to Wengeneralp and after a hot chocolate and a delicious Swiss pastry have a wonderful walk back to Wengen. The Jungfrau hiking and sledging pass allows unlimited travel on the local transport system for non-skiers (and half price for Eigergletscher to Jungfraujoch and Mürren to Schilthorn) - please call for details.
Toboggan A network of scenic and exciting runs link Mürren, Wengen & Grindelwald. You can buy a local day pass or an unlimited sledging pass for the whole region from 111 Sfrs for 2 days. Hire your sledge from an Intersport shop and drop it off at any other in the region.
Ice rinks Natural and artificial rinks in the centre of the village for skating and curling.
Ski school Children will enjoy learning in the village's Snow Garden. Lessons can be booked for children and adults, with a choice of group or private instruction.
You are certain to find somewhere that is perfectly suited to your taste and style. The Pickel Bar, Tanne Bar and Crystal are popular venues in the heart of the village with a lively atmosphere, especially as skiers wind their way home from the ski slopes. The Silberhorn and Arvenstube have a more relaxed atmosphere. For an evening with dancing try Hasentall. As Wengen is compact and traffic-free many people enjoy a walk round the village after dinner and you can call in to the Piano Bar at the Beausite Park Hotel or relax in the beautiful rustic stübli of the Schönegg. Most weeks there’s either an ice hockey match or floodlit skiing to enjoy.
Your ticket wallet will contain comprehensive travel instructions to help you reach your destination with ease, including recommended rail connection times and platform numbers. These are the most common routes for your Wengen ski holiday.
