Up a steep slope to the village


Wengen lies on a sunny, sheltered terrace below the Jungfrau, Mönch and Eiger mountains and has spectacular views across the Lauterbrunnen valley. You will arrive in this charming village by mountain train due to its reduced traffic policy. A variety of small shops, cafés and bars line the main street. Our hotels in Wengen offer you a great choice of accommodation. There are many delightful walks around and above the village, meandering through pine forests and flower-filled meadows. The excellent network of mountain railways and cable-cars makes Wengen the perfect base from which to explore the entire Jungfrau region and its fabulous walking. Don’t miss a trip to the top of the Jungfraujoch or Männlichen cable-car for magnificent views!
