The town is car-free, which adds to its charm. After the easy 10 mile drive from Interlaken, cars must be left in Lauterbrunnen (50 CHF per week in 2004, daily and hourly rates also available), where you take the 15 minute ride on the cog railway to Wengen. At Wengen, electric taxis wait to take you to your destination.

There's plenty to do in the town, with a good selection of eateries, bars and cafs. There are 3 toboggan runs, horse-drawn sleigh rides, dog-sledding, ice-climbing, an ice rink and curling. In the summer enjoy the beautiful walks in the countryside around the town, with fantastic views of the Jungfrau, or venture higher and follow the many well-marked paths through the mountains on foot, horse or mountain bike.
