Wengen region

On Top of Europe

The small, car-free spa town of Wengen, with its typical wooden chalets and lovingly maintained traditions, is situated on a sunny, sheltered mountain terrace at over 1300 m above sea level.

The three peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau tower majestically in the background. An excursion to the Jungfraujoch, the "Top of Europe“, 3454 metres above sea level, is an absolute must. The pure mountain air and peace and quiet guarantee sheer relaxation. More active guests and families also appreciate the wide range of activities and the many options for excursions, which are among the biggest attractions of Wengen.

The three most famous mountains in the Bernese Alps are the landmark of the Jungfrau region. The Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau lie in the midst of an imposing mountain landscape, which is crossed by wild rivers and streams, clear mountain lakes and roaring waterfalls.

There's a lot going on...

...at the Kleine Scheidegg

Meeting point of two cog railways and for those who want to explore the most beautiful region in the Bernese Oberland. The nature is very close, and many trips lure: Better go to the Jungfraujoch, hike on the Eiger Trail or conquer the Lauberhorn?

Valley of the 72 waterfalls

Lauterbrunnen valley

Nestled between gigantic cliffs, Lauterbrunnen is ideal for hiking and a starting point for countless day trips. A total of 72 waterfalls gush down into the valley from the vertical cliff faces, some of which are more than 400 metres high. The sound of this unique natural spectacle accompanies you on the scenic path through the Lauterbrunnen Valley to Stechelberg.

UNESCO World Heritage

"The Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are considered to be one of the most spectacular mountain landscapes in the Alps, particularly because of the impressive mountain range of which they are made up. With a total area of 824 km2, the Jungfrau-Aletsch site covers almost all of the Bernese Alps with its monumental rock massifs that extend over the singing territory of Bern and Valais. It represents the wonderful natural beauty of the Alps".

The World Nature Forum - UNESCO Visitor Center Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch is just at fiveminute walk from the Brig railway station and offers you all the tools you need to find your way through this world heritage site. The interactive exhibition, suitable for children and adults, allows you to immerse yourself in the exciting and varied world of glaciers and high mountains, flora and fauna and alpine tourism. During your visit, you can also board the authentic Jungfrau railway carriage from 1912 and virtually climb up to the Jungfraujoch (this project has never been completed). The highlight of the exhibition is undoubtedly the large cinema screen, on which you can see panoramic scenes never seen before on the UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the end of the visit, don't hesitate to stop by the Jungfrau-Aletsch restaurant, where you can discover the wide variety of typical regional products prepared and served according to original recipes.
