The Hotel Falken was built in 1895, and has been loving run and maintained by the Von Allmen - Cova family since, staying here you'll discover why it's a significant member of the Swiss Historic Hotels group. The hotel is ideal for culture lovers looking for a traditional Swiss stay, it retains its charm throughout and you can admire the historic aspects the moment you step through the door.
The Falken is set back from the main centre of Wengen, and enjoys a quiet location overlooking the Lobhorn. The nursery slopes, train station and Männlichen cable car are just a short walk away from the hotel, and when the conditions are right it's possible to ski in/ out from the hotel via a connecting ski path to the beginners area. Wengen is an excellent choice if you don't want to ski the same areas each day - head over to Grindelwald for intermediate runs, Kleine Schiedegg for cruisy blues or Mürren for more advanced runs including the iconic Schilthorn.
Unique and traditional
Once you have stepped through the door you can see tradition in each room. Each of the bedrooms have a unique style, they are bright and cosy with most having views across the village and surrounding mountains. There are two comfortable and social lounges - The cosy and intimate bar overlooks Wengen and the Lobhorn, it is a great spot to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine after a day of exploring the Jungfrau. The historical Piano Room is popular with guests and locals alike, enjoy listening to a pianist who performs most evenings with a nightcap. You'll have made friends with the hotel staff who offer friendly attentive service in the large dining room and bar in no time.
Families are welcomed and made to feel at home at the Falken. The option to choose interconnecting rooms make for a comfortable stay, with plenty of space for the whole family. It's perfectly located, close to the beginner slopes too. We love that Wengen is traffic free, making it easy to explore the village on foot.
