Two weeks ago, as my wife and I entered our balcony at the Wengener Hof , our expectations were exceeded by the awesome view of the deep green Lauterbruunen valley surrounded by mountains including the snow capped Breithorn. I took photos of this scene each day at different hours, catching the sun striking the mountains at various angles.
This hotel is located a few minutes walk from the main drag of Wengen where you can take the gondola up the mountain to the village of Manlicken , the departure point for a very scenic yet easy 1 hour walk to Kleine Scheideg, home of the north face of the Eiger.
The Wenger Hof sits on a hill surrounded by trees and bushes. Reclining beach chairs decorate the front yard. Nobody bothers you here.
Whenever we asked the front desk clerk for assistance, he or she was very helpful, providing ice, cork screw, or arranging free transportation down to the wengen train station.
The breakfast buffet was acceptable. Eggs, cheeses, pork and fruit. I applaud Switzerland's sausage and bacon. Compared to pork found in America, these breakfast treats taste good, (i.e. chemical free ).
I have no complaints about this hotel, and will recommend it to friends and family.
