Wengen in Switzerland is a Swiss Alpine village in the Bernese Oberland region. Wengen is an exclusive village which offers great skiing, stunning walks in the summer and even holds to toughest marathon in the world if you are up for a challenge. If you are considering taking a career break to learn to ski or to become a ski instructor, then the slopes don't get much better than those in Wengen.
I was lucky enough to spend a week in Wengen skiing but would also love to return in the summer to go hiking.
If you are looking at visiting Wegen here is how you get there:
Wether you are flying or travelling via train to Wegen, you will need to get to Interlaken Ost railway station.
From Interlaken station you then need to get to the Bernese Oberland Railway (BOB) and catch the train to Lauterbrunnen. You can then catch the Wengernalp Railway (WAB) train to Wegen which takes around 15 minutes. In total from Interlaken Ost to Wengen takes around 45 minutes.
There are not any roads in Wengen and if you are driving you will have to leave your car in Laterbrunnen at the multi-storey car park. You can then catch the Wengernalp Railway (WAB) train to Wegen which takes around 15 minutes. Just ensure to double check the timetables.
The journey sounds like a lot of effort but it does take very long and the views are incredible and it is definitely worth it when you reach the top.
