Tips from Max on Wengen

We had an absolutely wonderful ski holiday in Wengen. Starting in Lauterbrunnen when we boarded the train, we already felt like we were on holiday. No stressing about the car, beacuse you just leave it in the valley. The village is all snow-covered streets and no exhaust from cars. Wengen is quite big but we immediately felt at home. As to the ski area, we found it perfect for advanced skiers, with beautiful views from the slopes amidst a breathtaking landscape. The Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau are wonderful! Wengen is unparalleled!

Loved Wengen for 25 years

Loved Wengen when private cars were not allowed on the streets. Have visited Wengen 5 times in the past 25 years. This time we saw cars parked in front of homes and business, and saw vans spewing exhausts as they passed by. Perhaps Wengen would require that all motor vehicles to be electric and kept out of site when parked on the main streets?

Beautiful surroundings and slopes for all levels

I have now been to Wengen 4 times and each year I think about going somewhere different but just can't make the change. This beautiful resort is quiet and free of traffic. There's a nice comfortable train to get up the mountains, so you can enjoy the scenery better. On the slopes there are some nice restaurants and cafes, but the apres-ski is nothing like in Austria, which is not bad thing! In the beautiful ski area there is just about enough for a week's skiing for experience skiers - for beginners it's just paradise for learning to ski. With the backdrop of the Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger, you couldn't ask for much more - perfect ski resort in my mind.

Truly Swiss ski resort

The skiing in Wengen is mainly for intermediate skiers but you can find more challenging slopes on the Murren side of the valley. The Jungfrau Ski Pass covers Wengen, Murren and Grindelwald so worth paying the extra to have more choice. Super fast cable car right in the centre which takes you up to the top in only 6 minutes to a large plateau with some nice gentle skiing and great views. The resort is lovely and so clean -n in true Swiss style - not sure there are any dogs here - in any case no evidence of them anyway!

One of the best Swiss resorts

Wengen is one of the nicest ski resorts in Switzerland. Such pretty views - seems to always be sunny and looking down over the clouds in the valley (just like the photo on your main page). The village is small enough to be cosy and friendly - there are plenty of apres ski pubs, and the locals are extremely friendly and helpful. A couple of times we needed help with things and we had no problem finding help. Really nice change from French resorts.

Super spot

Wengen is possibly the prettiest ski resort in the world with views of the Jungfrau and Eiger that will leave you lost for words. the skiing is as varied as one could wish for. For GOOD skiers looking for a challenge, "Oh God" is a run to scare the the pants off any self respectful skier! Take a trip to nearby Murren and visit where On Her Majesty's Secret Service was filmed. Simply super spot.
