Everything about Wengen is charming – from the train ride down into the village from the top of the Jungfrau, to the delightful Swiss chalet-style hotels that line the streets. It’s a much smaller, more quaint resort, and in my opinion, would be a great fit for those who don’t really take their skiing too seriously. The village’s main street makes for a great shopping stroll, and the views from every angle look straight out of a postcard. Since it’s a smaller resort, the terrain is quite a bit more limited, so more advanced skiers may struggle to find enough runs to entertain and thrill. However, for true intermediates, there are a lot of long, gentle runs (maybe not accessible during spring skiing, but definitely in the heart of winter!) that should be perfect. The town itself, as aforementioned, is full of charm – which makes it a fantastic choice for families as well as groups that have a mix of skiers and nonskiers.
