Wengen, situated in the heart of the Jungfrau region is the perfect place for every type of mountain excursion. There are plenty of short and long walks that can be started right from the garden of our Hotel or, that can be reached with local transport.
On the first day of your holiday we may propose you to reach Mannlichen, by cable car and, from there, walk to Kleine Scheidegg. It is a rather pleasurable and easy walk , not too demanding where can admire the wellknown Eiger north face. Once at Kleine Scheidegg, we suggest you try a typical Swiss dish, Rösti with melted cheese or a Rösti with an exquisite Bratwurst.
After your lunch you can than chose to walk back to Wengen or come down by train.
For a more demanding outing we may suggest to go down to Lauterbrunnen and, by bus reach the end of the valley, Stechelberg. From there walk up through the national reserve, surrounded by mountains that rise towards the 4000 metres, 13.000 feet, and spectacular waterfalls.
A visit at the Obersteinberg Hotel to taste their famous nut cake would be in order before descending back into the valley and admire, on the way, the Talbach waterfall.
For the more adventurous, Wengen and the surrounding region, offer numerous extreme sports like river rafting, canyoning, mountain biking, bungee jumping, sky diving and base jumping.
The ski slopes pass right by the Hotel so you can leave and come back virtually to the doorstep with skis on. sledging and snow shoe walking can also start right here.
In the centre of the village, about 100 metres from the Hotel, you will find the ice rink where you can choose between curling and ice skating.
Every january, Wengen is host to the famous international ski race: the Lauberhorn considered the most spectacular downhill race of the World Cup. Slalom and the super-combined also are part of the sporting weekend and the atmosphere in Wengen is electrifying.
On the opposite side of the Lauterbrunnen valley stands the Schilthorn, another wellknown mountain, where the James Bond movie "At her Majesty's Secret Service" was filmed.
For those of you who prefer a slower pace, Wengen also offers lovely winter walks, guided snow shoe walks, or a relaxing SPA.
We may also propose a typical Swiss lunch on the terrace of one of the many mountain Restaurants where you can enjoy the pure air and warming sunshine.
