About Wengen

The car-free village of Wengen sits on a south facing plateau at 1,274 m above sea level, looking out onto the world famous Jungfrau mountain. The old world charm of the farming hamlet of the early 1800s still coexists in tandem with innovative 21st century ski technology. Here age old Alpine summits and inherent Swiss culture are interlaced with threads of the Belle Epoque and the folklore of the Lauberhorn Run.

Wengen is situated in the heart of the Jungfrau Region and affords a welcoming Swiss retreat from which to explore several mountain landscapes including the Jungfraujoch, the Schilthorn, the Schynige Platte, the Faulhorn and the Lobhorn. In contrast the valley lake regions of Brienz and Thun are within easy reach and for the more agile the mountain lakes, Bachsee and Oberhornsee.
