EXPLORE WENGEN

Settle into an alpine wonderland.

Overlooking Lauterbrunnen Valley, in the pastoral canton of Bern, car-free Wengen is a picturesque alpine village with belle époque hotels, timber chalets, and breathtaking views. Don’t know what to do in Wengen?

Go during winter, and choose from 155 miles of downhill ski runs on the Männlichen, Kleine Scheidegg, Lauberhorn, and Eigergletscher mountains. Even when the snow melts, Wengen’s charm remains. Travelers can get lost in Trümmelbach Falls, discover one of the area’s hidden lakes or go for a hike.

FIS Ski World Cup Lauberhorn

FIS Ski World Cup Lauberhorn, Switzerland’s largest annual winter sporting event, is held in Wengen every January. In front of a backdrop of the stunning Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains, this event brings the world’s top winter athletes together for two days of adrenaline-pumping competition—including a ski run deemed the longest in the world, and one of the sport’s most challenging slalom courses.

Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe

Jungfraujoch mountain is also home to the highest train station in Europe, which sits 12,000 feet above sea level, at the mouth of the largest glacier in the Alps: Aletsch Glacier. Open all year long, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is packed with activities for everyone.

Get the most impressive view of Switzerland from the Sphinx Observation Deck, glide through the Ice Palace, go dog-sledding or ziplining, hit golf balls, or try hiking the Jungfrau Region in Switzerland on the glacier itself.

Hiking and Trekking

Wengen, Switzerland hiking, takes you to the most breathtaking viewpoints in the Jungfrau region. Walk the 4.2-mile trail from Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg, and you’ll get a surreal view of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfraujoch mountains.

For something truly jaw-dropping, take the Eiger Trail, at the foot of Eiger North Face, where you’ll see daring souls climbing Eiger’s steep rocks right above you.

Lauterbrunnen Valley

Lauterbrunnen Valley goes well beyond the quaint town of Wengen, and wandering through it means getting lost amidst miles of towering pines, seemingly impossible cliff faces, colorful alpine meadows and cozy villages. “Lauterbrunnen” translates to “many springs,” and its namesake valley is home to 72 waterfalls.

Of them, don’t miss Trümmelbach Falls, which cascades more than 650 feet over ten, glistening glacier falls.

Skiing and Snowboarding

After you’re done admiring the impressive Jungfrau peaks from your balcony, get up there and ski right down them! The Jungfrau ski region has 120+ miles of skiing and snowboarding runs, and right in Wengen, the slopes of Kleine Scheidegg, Lauberhorn and Männlichen promise powdery-white pistes for every level of adventurer.

 

As an added perk, guests of Maya Caprice Wengen will get a 10% discount on all ski and snowboard equipment at Central Sport Wengen, as well as free equipment storage at the hotel.
