Visitor Reviews of Wengen


bill clough from United Kingdom writes:

I am 60 years old, have skied in every European alpine country (9) from Andorra to Bulgaria, in 32 different resorts and can say Wengen is by far the best by a country mile. I first came to Wengen in 1992 and have returned almost every year since, only occasionally trying somewhere else. The resort is beautiful and quiet; no waiting for lifts at all. Wengen is reasonably priced and the nightlife can be as exciting or peaceful as you want (also as expensive or as cheap as you want). Runs are varied, good for beginners and intermediates alike and there are a few good blacks to entertain the more adventurous in Wengen and the close resorts of Murren & Grindelwald. But beware if you come here you may never want to go anywhere else again.
