Looking for a supremely indulgent Swiss summer holiday? You have found it in the cool mountain resort of Alpine Wengen which lies right in the heart of the Jungfrau Region. It’s not just a beautiful location with snow-clad Alpine peaks, although it is just that. Wengen is also a scenic centre for a variety of sports activities, both relaxing and challenging. Or if sightseeing is your scene, you couldn’t find a better base for Swiss summer holiday excursions to the glacier world of the Jungfraujoch. And… not to be missed, is the eyrie of Schilthorn’s Piz Gloria, Bachalpsee, Schynige Platte, the valley lakes and more!
Swiss Summer Holiday Excursions from Wengen
‘Top of Europe’
Perhaps the most popular Swiss summer holiday excursion, the cogwheel rail journey through the Eiger and Mönch mountains, is one of the best in the world. The highest rail station in Europe is the gateway to a frozen glacier world. Visit the Ice Palace, walk on the glacier and much more.
The nostalgic Schynige Platte Railway winds its way upwards through dense Beech forests, across green alp and over precipitous track for stunning views of the iconic Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau Mountains. Visit the interesting Alpine Garden or trek off on short circular paths or the long trail to the Faulhorn, Bachalpsee and First. This is one of the most celebrated Swiss summer holiday hikes in the region.
An early morning start is rewarded on clear, still days, by a beautiful, reflecting, mountain lake. A perfect day out for any Swiss summer holiday.
No Swiss summer holiday is complete without daring yourself to walk around the cliff face at Birg. Then travel further upwards by cablecar to the revolving restaurant for a glass of champagne to toast the passing panorama of peaks.
Bask in the glory days of the superb Belle Époque paddle-steamers that ply the lakes of Brienz and Thun. Hop-on and hop-off to visit Giessbach Falls, Iseltwald village and Brienz on Lake Brienz. Step back into history and visit Thun Castle or taste wine at Spiez on Thunersee. Swiss summer holidays in Wengen might include sunset BBQs on Männlichen and sunset cruises on Lake Thun.
