Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

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 on its own terrace the hotel enjoys wonderful views of the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The hotel occupies a quiet position, approximately 8 minutes’ walk below Wengen village centre. The hotel offers a small shuttle bus to and from the train station and cable cars where all Hotel Alpenrose guests are able to store their equipment for free.

Once a week a farmers buffet is served instead of the served evening meals and the varied buffet breakfast ensures plenty of choice for everyone. The charming interior, including cosy lounge and bar are beautifully furnished in an Alpine style. The hotel has excellent public spaces and relaxing in the lounge by the log fire is the perfect way to unwind after a day in the mountains.

All bedrooms are furnished in a modern alpine style, some have south-facing balcony and views of the Lauterbrunnen Valley.

Up a steep slope to the village

Wengen

The idyllic village of Wengen lies high up on a sunny, sheltered terrace with spectacular views, dominated by that magnificent trio of peaks – the Eiger (Ogre), Mönch (Monk) and Jungfrau (Maiden) – which provide a magnificent backdrop to Mürren and Wengen, and in part to Grindelwald, all of which enjoy genuinely superb in-your-face scenery. You will arrive in this charming, friendly village by mountain railway as it has reduced traffic (some electric vehicles are present). The local area pass covers Wengen and Grindelwald, whilst the Jungfrau whole area pass also covers Mürren, 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. Skiers of all grades will delight in the expanse of pistes and beautiful scenery. The Eigergletscher station and Eigernordwand 6-persons chair lift give access to black and red slopes, including the black, runs “oh God” and “Black Rock” or the red “Punchbowl”. Non-skiers can take advantage of the excellent winter walking with a non-skiers’ lift pass.
