Walking

Wengen sits on a natural terrace above the Lauterbrunnen valley. There are many walks starting from the village, offering stunning views of the surrounding snow peaked mountains and the valley, known as the ‘Valley of 72 waterfalls’. The Männlichen cable-car and the Wengeneralp mountain railway make the high viewpoints, trips down the valley, and neighbouring resorts easily accessible.

Easy An easy pleasant walk is the ‘Forest trail’, which takes you through the village forest with details of many different trees and plants along the way (map available from tourist office, approx. Sfr1). Another popular walk is the classical pass from Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg, which enjoys wonderful views from the long mountain ridge of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains, as well as the beautiful Trummelbach valley, passing through a wide, well-developed hiking trail with a gentle descent taking approx. 1.5hrs to complete.

Moderate From the terrace to the Männlichen the trail gently ascends over Allmend to Wengernalp, before continuing around the slopes of the Lauberhorn and to the Kleine Scheidegg at 2061m (approx. 2½ hrs). From here, choose to continue on the panoramic ‘Eiger trail’, hike to the glacier, or take the little mountain train back to resort. Or follow the route of the Lauberhorn World Cup ski race, which is approx. 4.5km longe. You can hike from the Hanegg Bridge uphill to the Lauberhorn or back down from the start point at the Hundschopf. 

Slightly challenging For more experienced walkers, try the head of the Lauterbrunnen valley, where good footpaths lea through forests and alpine meadows to the remote mountain hotels Tschingelhorn and Obersteinberg. This demanding full day’s walk is steep in places, but the view of the Breithorn with lunch at one of these hotels is more than worth the effort, or head over to Mürren and hike to the summit of the Schilthorn.
