Mountain biking in the Jungfrau Region has something for every skill level. From world class downhill tracks to scenic cross country rides for the more casual rider.

If you’re not sure, we recommend the e-bikes so you’re sure to see as much as possible.
For over 90 years, Wengen has been home to the world famous Lauberhorn Downhill ski race. It is the longest downhill race in its category. While Wengen offers this epic downhill course for the FIS Ski World Cup athletes, the Jungfrau Ski Region caters to all skill levels, with three mountain ranges and about 206 kilometers of perfectly prepared pistes. Regardless of skill levels, there is something for everyone.
You no longer need to hike up small hills for 10 seconds of fun. The Jungfrau Ski Region has many dedicated sledging runs accessible by train or cableway. Some of these runs can last as much as 15-20 minutes, depending on experience.
Every avid hiker can attest to the beauty of hiking in the winter. With winter hiking trails prepared just for that, you will love the fresh mountain air and the beautiful sound of snow crunching under your shoes on every step you take. There truly is something magical about Wengen in winter.
We have logged thousands of skydives around the world and can attest... This is truly one of the most beautiful places on the planet to make a jump. There are several drop zones in the area--some cater to first time jumpers and some cater to experienced jumpers with their own gear.
No kidding. the Jungfrau region is home to some of the best BASE jumping in the world. Even if you aren't a jumper it's fun to watch in Summer!
One of the best ways to see the Lauterbrunnen valley. Get the best bird’s eye view, from a place far fewer people get to go. An incredible flying experience. No experience is necessary for a tandem paragliding flight!
With ten glacial waterfalls inside the mountain, the Trümmelbach waterfalls are truly unique. We recommend a visit even on bad weather days. Be sure to bring extra layers--it can get cold in there. Trümmelbach Falls is only open during summer months.
Open all year round, the walk will take about 30 minutes from Wengen, leading you to one of the most stunning views over the Lauterbrunnen valley and its many many waterfalls. There are several benches at the Staubbachbänkli, so we recommend you take a picnic and drinks of your choice.
Just behind one of the Wengen churches are 3 benches for visitors to relax and take in the view. A bit of a local secret because the benches are hidden behind a few bushes. Highly recommended for a sunset drink!
The world famous Lauberhorn Downhill race. For over 90 years Wengen has hosted the world’s longest men’s downhill ski race. Many fans gather at the top of the Wixi ski lift to watch an airshow by The Patrouille Suisse (Swiss Air Force) with the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau in the backdrop.
Located next to the Wengen train station, Restaurant Eiger has an outdoor terrace that gets lots of afternoon sunshine. Treat yourself to a cold drink on their terrace, then go in for genuine Swiss dishes and specialities such as cheese fondue or raclette.
Boasting a big balcony/terrace with stunning views. They serve pizzas, pasta, and other Italian dishes. The mood of the staff can vary but it is still worth a visit. They also offer take-away pizzas for a discounted price. Reservations are recommended.
For a cold drink or a nice lunch not far from Wengen. Restaurant Allmend is our favorite pick for casual dining as it’s a perfect stop after a fun day on the slopes or a nice hike through the mountains. The restaurant has a big sunny terrace and great views overlooking Wengen and part of the Lauterbrunnen Valley.
A must for James Bond fans. Travel to the very top of the Schilthorn to it’s famous rotating restaurant for a brunch buffet that James Bond would approve of. Great even if you’re not hungry, with 360 degree views of the Swiss Alps from 2,970 m (9,744 ft).
Known to many locals as the start of the end. Open in winter and select summer days. Called “Start Bar” because it is located next to the starting line of the Lauberhorn Downhill ski race. In winter, just take the Wixi ski lift up and you can’t miss the big crowds and pumping music. In summer you will have to hike up to Start Bar. It will take about 30 minutes from Kleine Scheidegg.
A local favorite bar in the middle of town! Wengen's mixology bar and the closest we have to a sports bar. If you're looking to watch your favorite football or rugby match, or to have a local beer or cocktail, this is the place!
