The best scenery in the alps... 22/11/2012
I've been fortunate to have travelled to Wengen half a dozen times over the last few years. I've never found anywhere else in Europe quite as stunning... you will need a camera or a GoPro if you ski here! The ski area is vast - linked by old mountain trains to Murren and Grindlewald. Wengen has some lovely long cruisey runs, through what can only be described as "Narnia-esque" scenery - set underneath the Eiger, the scenery is very dramatic. The Lauberhorn run is a real thigh burner, which is in parts a lot steeper than it appears on the TV show "Ski Sunday" when they feature the World Cup Downhill. Murren has lots of potential for off-piste, with some amazing tree skiing and crazy high-alpine bowl skiing from the top of the Schilthorn. It's a secret free-ride mecca - but guides are essential. I love it here (the scenery is amazing), but I find it a little quieter than Wengen in the evenings. Grindlwald is the busier of the three resorts - but the ski area of First is great for all abilities and off-piste hounds. Again great scenery with the Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger looming in the background. Nightlife in all resorts is more on the quiet side, but there are parties to be found if you're not too shattered from a hard day's skiing. There's heaps of things to do for non-skiers - such as the Jungfraujoch (the highest train station in Europe with stunning views of the Aletsch glacier), lots of sledging (with the longest sledge run in Europe) trips to waterfalls, hiking etc. I could rabbit on and on about this area for eternity... if you fancy getting away from the masses to the big name french resorts, then you won't be disappointed!

Review 29/12/2009
In my opinion, Wengen is one of the nicer resorts in Switzerland. Over the last eleven years that I have skied in Switzerland, I have returned to Wengen no less than five times. Small town, cosy pubs, pleasant Apre ski, good mix of runs, centrally placed between Grindelwald and Murren. Locals are extremely friendly and helpful.
