Looking for a mountain escape in the stunning Swiss Alps? Try these hotels in Wengen for size for winter skiing and summer hiking.

Set on a shelf overlooking the Lauterbrunnen valley, Wengen is a real Swiss charmer. The local ski area has more than 100km of pistes and the village is home to numerous hotels, mostly three- or four-star, with bags of character and a homely feel. From boutique boltholes to B&B lodgings, these are the best places to stay in Wengen.

1. Hotel Falken

There’s traditional style in spades at this centrally-located property, which was one of the first hotels to open in the Jungfrau region. Rooms are individually styled, with chintz wallpaper, vintage rugs and pot plants. Families are well catered for – family rooms sleep up to four and the suite can sleep five. The hotel can organise guided hikes or snowshoeing trips, and there’s live music in the restaurant in the evenings.

2. Maya Caprice Boutique Hotel & Spa

This 21-room boutique hotel was built in traditional chalet style in 1989 and has been brought right up to date. Located close to the station and main street, you can ski back to within just a few metres of the main entrance. Expect smart, contemporary decor and plenty of wood. There’s also a sauna and restaurant serving Tuscan dishes, such as homemade tagliatelle, fresh pizzas and Italian burrata.

3. Arenas Resort Victoria-Lauberhorn

It may have been built in 1897, but step inside the three-star Arenas Resort Victoria-Lauberhorn and you’re greeted by an ultra-modern interior. There’s a vibrant colour scheme and contemporary furnishings throughout. The wellness centre is a real highlight, complete with a saltwater pool, sauna and steam room, plus panoramic views from the relaxation area. The best of the 120 rooms (which include family rooms) are the Panoramic Superior doubles – they have superb views over the valley and to the Jungfrau.

4. Beausite Park Hotel

Sitting at the top of the village nursery slope, the four-star Beausite Park Hotel has earned its reputation as Wengen’s best hotel. It has stellar views to the Jungfrau and the south-facing rooms make the best of them. The five-course dinners served in the Panorama restaurant are a highlight, as is the wellness area with its indoor pool, hot tub, three types of sauna, steam room and gym.

5. Sunstar Hotel Wengen

Perfectly placed on the main street near the cable car, this four-star, chalet-style hotel is a good family-friendly choice. There’s a play area for children off the bar and lounge, and the 76 modern rooms include family rooms and suites. There’s also a sauna, steam room, and large indoor pool with huge windows offering great views. After a four-course dinner, relax by the fire and listen to live music performances.

6. Hotel Alpenruhe

Built in 1907, this three-star, 24-room hotel has friendly service, oodles of charm and excellent views of the Jungfrau and Lauterbrunnen Valley. Rooms – which range from single boltholes to three-bed options – all have balconies and face either the mountains at the front of the hotel or forest at the back. Breakfast is included, and in the afternoon the terrace is a great place for a warming cup of tea before dinner in town.

7. Wengener Hof Hotel

Experience Swiss hospitality at this traditional hotel, which has a central location, pretty gardens and a small spa with a sauna. Rooms are individually styled, with floral curtains, bright carpets and inviting sofas. The elegant restaurant is hung with glass chandeliers and serves a four-course evening meal. Additionally, there’s a cosy bar serving everything from champagne to local tipples. Winter activities include curling and ice skating, while summer is prime hiking season.

8. Hotel Edelweiss


Daniel and Susanne Eisenegger ensure you have a warm welcome at the Edelweiss, which sits in the heart of Wengen. The best of the 25 rooms are south-facing with Jungfrau views.
