Hotel Alpenrose opened its doors in 1881 and has been home to the Binder family since. Its relaxed atmosphere, great service and highly rated cuisine see guests return year after year to this charming family-run hotel. Set in a quiet position, about eight minutes walk to the Wengen village centre, the hotel enjoys wonderful views of the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The hotel offers a small shuttle bus each morning to and from the train station and cable cars where all Hotel Alpenrose guests are able to store their equipment for free.

Cosy bar and restaurant 

The charming interior, including cosy lounge and bar are beautifully furnished in an Alpine style, and relaxing in the lounge by the log fire is the perfect way to unwind after a day in the mountains. Each day you can enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast which includes a varied continental offering with local produce, as well as hot items including pancakes, bacon and eggs. Once you have returned from a day of skiing, you can enjoy a varied set menu each evening and once a week a farmers buffet is served instead of the served evening meals. 

Modern Alpine Bedrooms

All bedrooms are furnished in a modern alpine style, with wood panelling and cosy furnishings. The rooms have all of the amenities needed for a relaxing week in the Alps, including comfortable beds, a TV and radio, and free Wi-Fi.

The idyllic village of Wengen is high up on a sunny, sheltered terrace with spectacular views, dominated by the magnificent trio of peaks – the Eiger (Ogre), Mönch (Monk) and Jungfrau (Maiden) – which provide a spectacular backdrop to Mürren and Wengen, and in part to Grindelwald. You'll arrive in this charming, friendly village by scenic mountain railway as it has reduced traffic, although you'll spot a few electric vehicles around.

Skiing and Snowboarding in Wengen

Home of the famous Lauberhorn downhill race this area is a skiers paradise. With the Jungfrau whole area pass you'll have access to skiing and boarding in Wengen, Grindelwald and Mürren ski areas, on the other side of the Lauterbrunnen Valley.  Take the cable-car from Wengen village centre, which links to Grindelwald’s ski area or take the mountain railway to the Kleine Scheidegg where both ski areas meet. Whatever your ski ability, you'll have the chance to enjoy the expanse of slopes and beautiful scenery. If skiing and boarding's not for you or just fancy a few day's doing other winter activities, take advantage of the amazing winter walking and sledging network. Pre book a non-skiers pass and use the lift and rail network to link the sledge runs and hiking trails. 

Bars and restaurants in Wengen

There are plenty of mountain restaurants across the Jungfrau area to check out for food at lunchtime. In the small village you'll find that some of the best restaurants are in the hotels, which are largely open to the public offering a la carte menus. With the majority of our accommodation available on a half board basis, so you'll have breakfast and dinner covered. When it comes to après in Wengen, think cosy bars and elegant lounges.
