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. Everyone arrives in this charming, friendly village by mountain railway as it is virtually traffic-free. 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 Salzegg lift access a handful of black runs, like Oh God! and  Black Rock. Non-skiers can take advantage of the excellent winter walking with a non-skiers’ lift pass.
