Where should you head to?

Take a scenic ride to Wengen from Lauterbrunnen on the mountain railway. Ski on the slopes of a family-friendly ski region of Kleine Scheidegg-Männlichen with 110 km of predominantly easy to medium-difficulty pistes. If you fancy yourself as an expert, try the famous World Cup piste on the Lauberhorn. Bask in the long hours of sunshine in the neighbouring ski areas of the Jungfrau region. For a lighter option, hike through the toboggan runs.

Trot through the marked walking trails or take one of the mountain cableways to explore the beautiful landscape of the Jungfrau region. Capture the views of the rock ridges of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau on the panoramic route between Wengen and the Kleine Scheidegg. Observe the climbers on the Eiger north face by telescope from the Kleine Scheidegg. Trace the Eiger trail at the foot of Eiger north face for some astonishing scenery. Get on a sleigh with husky dogs at Jungfraujoch or try hang-gliding from Männlichen and Kleine Scheidegg.
