Visitor Reviews of Wengen

laurence mitchell from United Kingdom writes:

Just back from my first ever week in Wengen. Wish I had found this place 30 years ago. Must be the prettiest place in the Alps with stunning mountains & a huge amount of really varied intermediate territory. Most accommodation is within 200 metres of the cable car which whisks you up 1000 metres in 6 minutes. Car free resort & only a few electric taxis. 1st class piste preparation & excellent Swiss Ski School ( inclusive for 5 days with Club Med, as is the lift pass!) Have already booked again for next year. *****
