Wengen, sitting on a sunny plateau above the incredibly beautiful Lauterbrunnen Valley is a small car free village that is a mecca for families.
Wengen is a compact village with most of the hotels and shops situated on the main street between the train station and the cable car station, the two ways of accessing the ski area. It is very easy to get around, and the added bonus of being car free makes it a safe and pleasant environment to be in.
Part of the Jungfrau Ski Region compromising the villages of Wengen, Grindelwald & Mürren, you are able to access over 200km of slopes in three distinct ski areas.
Kleine Scheidegg-Mannlichen, the largest of the areas and shared by Wengen with Grindelwald offers a good mixture of terrain, ideally suited for intermediates but with good options for beginner progression and some challenges for advanced skiers, including the world famous Lauberhorn downhill slope, the longest on the World Cup circuit.
