Given the charm of the village, the friendly locals and the dramatic scenery, it’s easy to see why many people love Wengen. Popular with the Brits for many years, it’s also good for those who don’t take their skiing too seriously, for families and for mixed groups of intermediates and non-skiers.
There is nothing brash about Wengen, it is more of a traditional resort and the spectacularly scenic Jungfrau region is one that every keen skier should experience. Centrally located between Mürren and Grindelwald, Wengen makes the perfect base.
What do we like about it?
Some of the most spectacular scenery in the Alps
Small, traditional, nearly traffic-free Alpine village
Lots of long, gentle runs, ideal for leisurely intermediates
Nursery slopes in heart of village
Calm, unhurried atmosphere
Good resort for families and groups that include non-skiers. It’s easy to get around on mountain railways
