Wengen Excursions with Alpine Holiday Services
A Wengen vacation at Chalet Mönchsbüffel offers a huge variety of truly memorable excursions in the Alps, invigorating activities and relaxing wellness options.
An excursion to the world renowned, glacial world of the Jungfraujoch is top of most visitors’ lists. Imagine the high, rarefied world of the mountaineer, enveloped in mountain peaks, glaciers, snow and ice. Add a bit of touchy feely snow scrunching and ice glistening. Then don long distance vision to realise the summit scenery…and you’ve got it! EXCEPT a trip to the Top of Europe/Jungfraujoch can be effortless. The tremendous feat that is the Jungfrau and Wengernalp Railways enable us all to visit the highest railway station in Europe!
Not to be outdone, the Schilthorn system of cabeways can whisk us to the pinnacle of self indulgence…champagne on ice at 2970m, revolving whilst summit spotting at Piz Gloria. This revolving restaurant is the eyrie hideout that was built for and featured in, the Bond Spy Movie of 1969.
The aforementioned excursions are almost a round the year event, however, summer holds its secrets too. One of our favourites is the Schynige Platte trip. The nostalgic train climbs through beech forests, across alp, tunnels through rock and pine forest alike, precariously traverses the mountain contour and finally we witness a vista to match all vistas! The Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau trio of stunning, snow-clad peaks presents itself and the deep and distant valleys add drama to the Tolkeinesque landscape. Schynige Platte itself offers the opportunity to commune with nature, sounds a bit ‘new age’ but the hike to Faulhorn and Bachalpsee and First is out of this world, or almost. Shorter circular hikes are also possible and then there’s the mountain top restaurant…not easy to resist!
Whilst we are enumerating the high spots, let’s not forget the gem of a mountain lake that is Bachalpsee. Whilst visits are possible for most of the year, and always worthwhile, the magical reflection of the mountainscape on the still waters (you hope) is obviousy only possible when the lake is free of ice and snow.Enough of the high spots!…the lakes of Thun and Brienz are easily reached from Wengen. Get the season and the time and the boat right and it’s a mesmerising evening. The paddles churn the glacier lake water of Thun, the nostalgic paddle steamer glides through the water, the sun drops and the light intensifies to orange and we are transported…Lake Brienz cruises have much to offer too. The waterfall and period hotel at Giessbach is an enticing stopover. Food to be recommended and the red funicular is just so Swiss!
Day Excursions further afield are also possible. The swish Lucerne-Interlaken Express travels over the mountain at Brünig Hasliberg and follows several lakes to deliver you to the very different lakeside resort of Lucerne. The walk to, and visit to the Swiss Transport Museum are worthwhile.
Bern on the other hand is a medieval cityscape not to be misssed. Several up-to-date museums present a take on the past. You might also attempt to get your head around Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, he was a one-time Bern resident and inspired by the trams if I remember aright.
Wengen Vacation Activities Bookable with Alpine HolidayServicesFor those guests who just enjoy the experience of activity, we have the choicest opportunities. Even if the Jungfrau Marathon or Inferno Triathlon are not your thing, the sky is still the limit. Tandem paragliding is a thrilling way to experience the Jungfrau Region. Bungy jumping, sky diving, rafting and canyoning are all within your reach!
From extreme, heart-pumping, adrenalin-fuelled activities to cultural, real Swiss experiences to family friendly and thrilling adventures, the Jungfrau Region has it all.Imagine a holiday jam packed with action, experiences and stunning scenery… Alpine Holiday Services can make that vision a reality. Explore and book our range of activities and experiences with our third party partners through our website. It couldn’t be easier. Children will enjoy the Rope Park at Interlaken. A forest adventure located high up in the treetops. Or for rainy days, the Indoor Ropes Park can be a challenging option for young minds.
If you prefer to get up close to the Alpine peaks themselves then you can book a helicopter flight over the glaciated summits. Or for the more adventurous, Hang Gliding, Tandem Paragliding, Bungy Jumping and Sky Diving are on offer.
However if water is more your medium then reserving a seat on the Jetboat is a thrilling way to explore the turquoise blue waters of Lake Brienz. Sit back and enjoy the fun. The Aare Float Trip, Family Rafting, Kayaking, Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Canyoning might also appeal to the family on the move.
Or perhaps an evening Monster Scooter Tour? Or simply hiring a motor boat on Lake Thun to explore, sun-soak and swim? Wengen resort lies at the heart of the Jungfrau Region and as such is ideal for tapping into the many sights and activities clustered in various high spots. Whilst at First, take in the Cliff Walk and adventurous First Flyer and First Glider. In addition, bookable elsewhere, are Trotti bikes, and Go-Karts. These are an exciting way to descend the mountain from First Grindelwald.
A favourite excursion for geology and history fans is the Glacier Canyon at Grindelwald. Explore the canyon along extensive walkways and through tunnels in the rock face. Take in the distant high snows and discover how the Lower Grindelwald Glacier was instrumental in bringing about these marvellous rock faces. Especially brilliant is the time around midday when the sun bathes first one wall of the canyon, then the whole and finally the opposite face. The powerful action of water on rock is visibly evident here and also at St Beatus’ Caves on the shores of Lake Thun. Oh and be sure to walk out onto the 170 m2 Spiderweb which spans the canyon. It really is a thrilling sensory walk and a great spot for Instagram photos.

Hiking Around Wengen with Alpine Holiday Services
Perhaps the most ubiquitous activity in the Region during the summer months is hiking. And there are many must-do hikes for all levels of fitness. If you are strictly a downhill person, trekking down from Eigergletscher, along the moraine and on to Biglenalp’s waterside and Wengernalp is a rewarding plan. Possibly wending your way down through the woods from Stalden to Wengen. There are possibilities for Cheese tasting at Wengernalp.
A more strenuous but celebrated day hike starts from Schynige Platte. Only open in the high summer season, it initially follows the contour of the mountain and the trail passes through beautiful scenery to Faulhorn and the mountain restaurant, then down to Bachalpsee and First. The Jungfrau Massif is the star of the show. Or hike the opposite way but be sure to make the last train/gondola.Another equally lauded trail takes you from Stechelberg in the Lauterbrunnental to the mountain tarn of Oberhornsee via Obersteinberg. The Breitorn is up close here and the moraine is a captivating sight. The tinglingly cold waters of the lake are freshness personified for the brave and hardy hiker.
