Location & area

Bijouli is a Luxury 4 star Chalet (appointed by the Swiss Tourist Board) located in the breath taking Wengwald which is the stop before Wengen on the WAB train. It is a lovely 15 minute stroll from the centre of the village or a very short train journey on one of the frequent ski trains. (For Information on the Chalet please browse the sub pages)

Wengen is located in central Switzerland, 190 km (118 miles) from Zurich, the nearest international airport. Travel time from Zurich is 2.5 hours by car and 3.5 hours by train. The resort is 200 km (124 miles) from Geneva and 70 km (43 miles) from Berne.

By train, take international train connections to Interlaken Ost (SBB), then the Bernese Oberland Railway (BOB) to Lauterbrunnen. In Lauterbrunnen change on the same platform to the Wengernalp Railway (WAB) to Wengen. The journey from Interlaken Ost to Wengen takes 45 minutes.

The Area
A very picturesque resort which has welcomed skiers since the 19th century, Wengen has probably the most spectacular scenery of any mountain resort in the world. Serious competitors are its neighbors in the Jungfrau region, Grindelwald and Murren.

Car-free, with life centered on the railway (which ultimately reaches Europe's highest rail station) Wengen has the spectacular backdrop of the Eiger as well as the Monch and Jungfrau. It is one of the 'original' downhill skiing destinations pioneered by British tourists, and was the first resort in the world to offer uphill transportation (the railway to Kleine Scheidegg, completed in 1911).

The resort is the base of the famous Downhill Only Club (DHO), established in 1924 when the English visitors first persuaded the locals to keep the railway running in the winter to get a lift up the mountains, then jump out and ski 'downhill only'. Wengen is also home to the legendary and spectacular annual Lauberhorn World Cup downhill course, the longest and many believe the greatest there is.

Wengen's presence in the lists of 'most favorite resorts' for those who have visited it is an unusual one. Most other entrants will be there because of their fantastic skiing. Wengen will be there because of how you feel just being there, even before you put your skis on. The awe inspiring mountainscape above and below borders on a spiritual experience for many, which makes even the most bland skiing experience seem transcendental.

Not that Wengen's skiing is bland - far from it. Nearly 100 miles (160 km) of trails, shared with neighboring Grindelwald, are lift-linked from the village, with a further 40 km (25 miles) also on the Jungfrau Top Ski Lift pass across the valley at Murren. The main ski area (shared with Grindelwald) is the Kleine Scheidegg.
Obviously the area is wonderful for hiking and for the more adventurous mountaineering with the famous Eiger North Face! Summer sports abound from peaceful walks to white water rafting and paragliding to name just a few. There are childrens play areas in the village and a menu of activities available from tourist information in Wengen whatever the season.
