Wengen, which shares the Jungfrau pass with Grindelwald and Murren, is most famous for its dramatic downhill course, the 'Lauberhorn'. It's also known as one of those classic Swiss ski resorts that is relaxed and has stunning scenery.

A relatively vehicle-free village, Wengen has retained much of its old-world charm, with mainly traditional wooden chalets and a friendly, welcoming community atmosphere. It's only approximately one and a half miles long.

Many people go to Wengen simply for the atmosphere. It's sedate, stress and traffic-free, and 'old-school'. The village has excellent hotels that provide most of the dining, with some superb mountain eateries to boot.

During the day, winter activities include skiing, tobogganing, curling, ice skating, snowshoeing, ice climbing and guided winter walking.

You can take a trip on a helicopter for sightseeing or maybe a husky sledge ride at Kleine Scheidegg.

In the summer, there is hiking, paragliding, mini-golf, tennis and an open-air swimming pool.

There is plenty of choice including 3 sports shops with equipment to rent and the latest in sport and leisurewear. There are a few souvenir shops, a watch shop, a small supermarket and the usual mixture of small village outlets.
