Holidays to Wengen
Spectacular scenery and sights await those who travel to Wengen in central Switzerland. Although best known as a prime skiing destination, Wengen also offers visitors pleasant pedestrianised streets, fabulous hiking trails, and a plethora of outdoor activities year round. This is a great mountain getaway for families and couples looking for a peaceful holiday in the midst of stunning natural beauty.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Wengen
Wengen has been luring skiers for over a century with its ideal location at the feet of the Jungfrau and Eiger mountains. The Kleine-Scheidegg-Mannlichen ski area offers plenty of blue and red runs, as well as some gentle green trails for beginners. This is also the site of the famous Lauberhorn World Cup Downhill run, a challenge for even the most experienced athletes. It would be easy to spend all your days on the slopes here, as the ski area gets plenty of sunshine and the snow conditions are generally very good.
Travellers who come to Wengen during the summer months will also find much to see and do here. You can take one of the 15 cable cars up the mountains to explore Alpine meadows, and tranquil forests, and take in the incredible views over Wengen and the verdant valley. There are also many hiking trails that begin in the village and wind their way up the slopes and to the village of Lauterbrunnen 400 metres below.
If you can only take one day trip on your holiday to Wengen, it should be to the Trummelbach Falls in Lauterbrunnen. These powerful subterranean waterfalls are the biggest in Europe, and it is an amazing sight to several tonnes of glacier melt water cascade through sheer rock walls. Visitors can witness the thundering falls from paths, lifts, and platforms. Lauterbrunnen is also home to over 70 waterfalls, although after seeing the Trummelbach Falls, the others may pale in comparison.
