St Johann in Tyrol
Wengen is quite a small resort, making it ideal for those who prefer low-key evenings and early nights. Hotel bars are great for a few drinks after your dinner. A casual stroll around the village while the sun is setting is also a perfect way to end the day.
There's only a handful of vibrant venues in Wengen, including the Rocks Bar and Tanne Bar - lively cocktail and gin bars.
Wengen's a relatively small resort, but it has a decent offering of restaurants serving traditional Swiss, Italian and French cuisines. Most are based within the hotels, but you'll find some great restaurants and cafés on the Dorfstrasse or Greubi too. And of course there’s no shortage of fondue.
On the Greubi is Da Sina, an Italian restaurant with an authentic atmosphere – from the décor to the service. The pizza here is renowned, and it's home to a range of good local beers. There’s also a lovely view of the Jungfrau from the outdoor patio.
Opposite the railway station is the Restaurant Silberhorn-Stube, famous for its hospitality and food recommendations from its staff. They create dishes inspired by Swiss cuisine and have a huge wine selection, as well as an outdoor terrace that's great for people watching.
On the other side of town is the Hotel Restaurant Bären, a comfortable, spacious eatery where each plate is decorated with a bear’s paw print. Every dish is made with local produce and ticks all the boxes when it comes to presentation. They also offer set tasting menus if you can’t decide what to have.
The village of Wengen is a pretty small resort so it won’t take long to walk from one end to the other, but, as it’s up on the mountain, you’ll have fantastic views wherever you are.
If you make your way down to Interlaken, you can jump on ferries on both Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. Services depart once an hour in high season and stop at various towns and villages around the lakes. Ferries in Lake Thun don't start operating until 11am.
Hop on the Wengernalpbahn down to Lauterbrunnen. From here you can catch rail connections to Interlaken in 20 minutes as well as various other places in the Jungfrau region. And take advantage of your Swiss Half Fare Card that you get as part of your holiday for up to 50% off Swiss train journeys during your stay.
There aren't any public buses in Wengen, but all our hotels do run electric transfers to and from the station on arrival and departure days.
From Wengen you can catch the Männlichenbahn and Jungfrau railway up the mountains for breathtaking views and fresh, exhilarating air. For other routes, take the Wengernalpbahn down to Lauterbrunnen, you can access the railway network to catch other mountain railways and cable cars.
Over 500km of marked trails await you in the Jungfrau region, a walker’s paradise with Alpine meadows, glacial gorges, crystal-clear lakes and dramatic mountains. The Panorama walk to Kleine Scheidegg is amazing – the sheer size of the Lauterbrunnen Valley is sure to impress. The summer lifts and trains give you access to more towns and routes, such as the gentle trails from Murren or the lakeside strolls from bustling Interlaken.
A real treat for your taste buds awaits you at the end of this route. Catch the Mannlichen cable car and then the Mannlichen gondola to the mid-station, and follow the well-used path, keeping an eye out for marmots. You’ll wind through meadows, past chocolate box houses and farms, and through woodland along this trail, which is dotted with information points shaped like apples. At Brandegg station is your reward – a restaurant selling mouthwatering apple fritters.
Use the train and cable car to reach the start of this route, in Murren. From the station, follow the path along the railway track. You’ll pass beautiful waterfalls and the station at Winteregg, plus the farm shop and dairy where you can sometimes watch cheese being made. Arriving at Grutschalp, you can catch the cable car back to Lauterbrunnen.
