Wengen Holiday Trips
An unspoilt hamlet just waiting to be explored on a late Wengen holiday.
Fallboden. Improve your fitness this autumn vacation by hiking up from Wengen to Fallbodensee and Eigergletscher. Views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau on a clear day will not disappoint.
The nostalgic Schynige Platte Railway operates quite late into October. Which is great for making the most of the golden autumn light on a Wengen vacation. The Alpine Garden is still of some interest and circular hikes might also appeal to you on this excursion from Wengen. The panoramic view of the wall of Bernese Alps is mesmerising from this vantage point too.
Check out the mountain bus from Grindelwald station and bathe in the morning light at Grosse Scheidegg. Hiking around to First and Bachalpsee might be possible on this holiday.
Mürren and Winteregg
The cableway from Lauterbrunnen to Grütschalp is a great way to get on the scenic, relatively flat trail along the contour to Winteregg and Mürren. Wengen resort can be seen across the valley, bathed in evening sunshine, with the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau Mountains on the right hand side.
Wengen Holiday: Männlichen
Although the cableway closes quite early in autumn, it might be possible to hike up from Wengen on this holiday. Red foliage is abundant in September and is particularly enjoyable on the ‘Romantic Hike’ down to Alpiglen or Kleine Scheidegg.
Eiger Glacier and Moraine
There are several ways up from Wengen, enabling this destination to be an option for most of this holiday season.
