We just spent 9 nights staying at an apartment 900metres from town centre Wengen. It was a bit of a hike pulling our luggage up to the apartment. But the views are breathtaking. Swimming at the most scenic public pool with the mountain views after a long day out is a highlight.
We travelled to Jungfraujoch Top of Europe From Wengen via Kleine Scheidegg. Two adults with Half Fare Card 200CHF. The only additional costs were for the snow activities with our children, buying chocolates at Lindt and lunch at the restaurant . In hindsight, we should have waited till we travelled back to Kleine Scheidegg for lunch as it would have been cheaper and more enjoyable. Suffered a bit of altitude sickness after a couple hours n the snow activities.
It was easy enough to visit Interlaken, Schilthorn for breakfast, Lucerne and Bern via Lauterbrunnen and Interlaken OST. There is a cable car called the Royal Ride from Wengen to Männlichen where you can pay 5CHF to stand on the balcony on top of the carriage. We actually went up twice. First time, one way (23CHF for two adults with Half Fare Card) and we walked the Panoramic Walk to Kleine Scheidegg and took train back to Wengen. Second time, so our boys could try the summer gemel to Holenstein rather than going to Grindelwald First.
Floating down the River Aare in Bern was Unforgettable.
