The Wengen Ski Resort shares the Jungfrau pass with Grindelwald and Murren and is mainly known for its impressive downhill course, the 'Lauberhorn'. It is a classic Swiss ski resort that has a relaxed ambience and stunning scenery to dazzle the eyes of any visitor. So, besides your customary ski exercises, don't forget to indulge in a bit of communion with nature during your stay at the Wengen ski resort. The resort however is traffic free and is only accessible by train from Lauterbrunnen. For those intending to take the train up to Kleine Scheidegg, a good knowledge of the timetable is a must in order to avoid unwanted queues. If you are looking for some other option, the newly renovated cable car to Mannlichen is a quicker alternative to reach the main area. Like the Grindelwald resort, the views of the Eiger and the surrounding mountains at Wengen are simply amazing. But both these resorts face the same problem of unreliable snow with the pistes not being higher than 2000 meters.
The Wengen ski resort offers a great skiing experience to beginners and intermediates with some excellent ski schools. The advanced skiers and boarders may be unhappy with the fewer number of pistes on offer in Wengen but it must be mentioned that the off-piste is adequate.
Wengen mainly owes its popularity to its atmosphere that is sedate, stress free and traffic-free. The village boasts of excellent hotels that provide most of the dining, with some superb mountain eateries to complete the picture. Nightlife at the Wengen ski resort is fairly restrained but non-skiers also have plenty to occupy themselves with during their stay. Deserving special mention is the train service that provides easy access to the valley below, to Murren and to Interlaken. When the weather is fine, many people just prefer to sit outside and enjoy the picturesque scenery and soak up the ambience of the place. Thus it can be safely said that Wengen is not all about skiing. It has much to offer that makes a visit to it an affair to remember.
