                          The Jungfrau Region, lying south of Interlaken and the lakes of Thunersee and Brienzersee is one of the most spectacular and dramatic areas of mountain scenery in Switzerland. At its heart lies the Lauterbrunnen valley which is dominated by the mountain giants of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. Wengen is perched above the valley, at an altitude of 1274m on a south west facing plateau and offers breathtaking views of mountain scenery of the grandest scale. It is a car free village of old world charm, accessed from Lauterbrunnen by train (approx 17mins). In winter the area offers extensive skiing accessed by cable car or train with skiing back to Wengen or Grindelwald. Once the snow melts, the area provides ideal hiking and walking country for all abilities. The chalet is located in a quiet position 5 mins from the centre and is conveniently situated adjacent the open air swimming pool. It is within easy walking distance of the shops, train station and other village amenities.

                          Ski: Wengen is ideally placed to provide easy access to the Jungfrau ski region which provides skiing and snowboarding for all levels and consists of 3 main areas - (1) Kleine Scheidegg - Mannlichen which is accessed by either cable car or train from Wengen with a number of black, red and blue runs back to the village as well long runs down to Grindelwald; (2) Grindelwald - First area, located above Grindelwald providing long blue and red runs; and (3) Murren - Schilthorn which provides some spectacular scenic skiing. Beginners are well served by the nursery slopes in Wengen and experts and thrill seekers can try out the black runs from the Lauberhorn down to Wengen following the course of the famous world cup downhill and slalom races.
