I have not been to Switzerland for a few years and I'm wondering about food and drink costs, in the resort of Wengen and surrounding areas.

Is it cheaper to buy picnic food/drink in Interlaken, rather than Wengen?

Can anyone help with the price of the following;

In mountain huts/cafes;

Large beer
Small beer
Glass of wine
Hot chocolate


Bottle of wine
Bottles of beer
Bottle of coke/fanta etc
Bottled water
Ready made rools/sandwiches
Small bar of chocolate


Glass of wine
Large glass of wine

Hi andrea. I can't tell all prices exactly, but if you're looking for the cheapest way to arrange for your food: just buy it at one of the supermarkets in Interlaken, rather than in hotels, mountain huts or other catering facilities. Denner is a discount supermarket. Migros and Coop offer cheaper brands as well. Both supermarkets have online shops, allowing you to select products and get a good idea of current prices. Links to both supermarkets and further tips can be found here.
