How to reach Wengen and how to get around

Wengen is car-free and can be reached by train only. The area can be explored by train, cableway and on foot.

How to reach Wengen

Wengen can be reached by train only. Drivers can park in the garage in Lauterbrunnen (paid) and take the cogwheel train up to Wengen. The ride takes about 15 minutes. Train travelers travel to Lauterbrunnen and switch for Wengen there. Travel by train if you can. You will save on parking costs, and you won't be needing a car to explore the region anyway.

How to get around the area

From Wengen, there are trains back down to Lauterbrunnen and further up the mountain to Kleine Scheidegg and eventually Jungfraujoch. From Lauterbrunnen, you can continue to Interlaken and other parts of the Bernese Oberland and Switzerland. From Kleine Scheidegg, you can take another train to reach Grindelwald.

There's also a cableway up to Männlichen. Several hiking routes start there, and there's a gondola from there to Grindelwald as well.

In winter, many ski lifts make sure you can reach the more than 200 km of pistes in the Jungfrau region.
