Wengen, Switzerland has one of the oldest railways in Europe.

The Swiss ski resort Wengen is surrounded by the mountains Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau and Lauberhorn. It offers slopes of all difficulty levels. Modern ski lifts carry skiers and snowboarders to the different slopes that are situated between an altitude of 943 and 2320 metres. Beside the slopes for alpine skiing the winter holiday in Wengen also offers toboggan runs and almost 100 kilometres of winter hiking trails. When you go skiing in Wengen you might also like to take the mountain railway up to the Jungfraujoch – it is not for nothing that this mountain is often called the “roof of Europe”.
