<<"If not, is there some other spot in or near Wengen we should try to get the best views of the valley?">>
See attached -
A very good place is a bit below the church, where the old and new tracks converge...or did converge if they have taken up the old tracks. Attached is from there. That one took 3 or 4 years to get, because the valley is usually misty and the far southern end is often very hazy. That is the same view as you see from the train on the right as it climbs into Wengen from Lauterbrunnen.
The one from the Hotel Eiger show the benefit of shooting from Wengen. That hotel is close to the Bahnhof, but it is now an apartment building.
You could try to walk from Wengen up hill toward Männlichen.
I do not believe that there is a tram station for Männlichen in Wengen. The Luftseilbahn ( cable car) starts up from Wengiboden. It is a 1000 meter climb if you choose to walk up to Männlichen.
The view of the valley from the far side of the train station in Wengen is not bad.

The attached map link shows Wengwald. My recollection is that the forest and the slopes block the view south along the valley. The red line(s) are trains and cable ways.
