The holiday resort lies on a wind-protected sun terrace at the foot of the Jungfrau, 400 metres above the Lauterbrunnen valley at an altitude of 1274 m. And it is just magnificent!
Wengen is a famous Swiss holiday resort that is right in the heart of the Alps.
With its nostalgic timber houses, the many dispersed holiday chalets and hotels dating from the belle époque period, this Bernese Oberland holiday resort has retained all the character of a picture-postcard mountain village.
It is also one of very few car-free resort villages in Europe; keeping in mind that there are a few service vehicles, local farm vehicles, and electric vehicles for taxiing to and from the railway station.
We strolled the neighborhoods and played with the adorable lambs nearby. We played on at the playgrounds, and just attempted to get a real feel for life on this hillside village. We really loved it!
We'll gladly go back one day and if you ever have the chance to go, I highly recommend that you take it!
