The village in the mountains at the foot of the Jungfrau (4158 m)
Wengen (1274 m) is situated on a wind-protected sun terrace at the foot of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, 400 metres above the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The traditional holiday resort offers a family-friendly skiing and hiking area around Männlichen-Kleine Scheidegg and the Eiger Glacier.
