Location - where is Club Med Wengen

The magical beauty of Switzerland for a family holiday.

Overview - hotel description - Club Med Wengen description

Back in the 1930s, the little rack railway took wealthy winter sports enthusiasts to Wengen, and the resort has retained its elegant atmosphere, grand hotels and jingling sleighs ever since. Club Med® built its Resort here in 1976, just outside the charming village, which lies in the heart of the largest massif in the Alps. It's the perfect base for exploring the surrounding mountains (the Jungfrau is one of the most famous), while your children have a great time at Mini Club Med®. After a day in the open air, settle down and relax in the cosy lounges of the elegant Art Deco hotel. Elevation: 1,400 metres (4,600 ft).

Part of the Jungfrau ski area Quintessential mountain village Lauberhorn World Cup piste

Wengen lies on a sunny shelf beneath some of the most recognisable mountains in the Alps - the north face of the Eiger, the Jungfrau and the Schilthorn. The fantastic skiing isn’t the only reason this picturesque resort has seen returning visitors (James Bond included) for centuries: excellent restaurants, exciting excursions, abundant activities and fascinating history are also massive draws.

Nestled at the foot of the majestic Jungfrau and looking out over the Eiger and Monch massive, Wengen is a truly spectacular location for a ski holiday. It’s linked to the resorts of Grindelwald, Mürren and Lauterbrunnen, forming the large Jungfrau ski area of over 200km. The famous Jungfrau region is one of the oldest and most popular holiday destinations in Switzerland and the sunny resort has long been a favourite with Brits. It dates back to around 1911, after tourists convinced the resort to keep their...
The railway still remains the key mode of transport between the ski areas – use it to get over to Grindelwald, Mürren, or Kleine Scheidegg at the base of the Eiger. However, it’s still possible to ski without catching the train thanks to the modern Männlichenbahn gondola. Total beginners should probably start with the Wengiboden nursery slope in the village if there is enough snow, but just remember it’s best in the mornings before the sun hits it. There’s also the Figeller children’s area, where the S...
Wengen certainly isn’t one of those mega party resorts you get in some parts of the Alps but there are some fun places for an après-ski tipple - head to Rocks Bar for televised sports events or go dancing at the Blue Monkey. There are some great restaurants in Wengen, many of which are based in hotels (but open to the public). For fine dining, Chez Meyer's Le Grand restaurant at the Hotel Regina is a must – its outstanding service and French cuisine has been granted 15/20 Gault Millau points (similar to Mi...

"Excellent"

Deborah, Oxfordshire
3/ out of 5
I’ve used Club Med before and it’s a nice hotel – it’s not as French as some of the others which can be quite good too! The hotel itself is a little run down and getting on a bit but the overall Club Med experience was excellent. You have to walk to the lifts but that’s just what it’s like in Wengen – because you have to go back for lunch time it’s quite a lot of walking. Provided you accept that there is some walking and you waste a bit of time at lunch, it’s fine and it really worked for us. The good thing about this hotel is that there’s lots to do if you’re not a skier. My sister-in-law doesn’t ski and they did a lot of walking and took them out on snowshoes, so it’s good for that. My brother and I are good skiers and had an excellent week off piste, you have excellent instruction which is much better than some hotels where you just rely on a ‘leader’. The food was a very nice buffet every meal and the choice is fabulous. I must admit that the evening entertainment wasn’t as good as some years.
