Getting to Wengen

The nearest airport is Bern but Geneva, Basel and Zurich airports all have train links to Wengen. The train journey is about 3 hours and involves changing at Interlaken Ost and Lauterbrunnen. From Geneva and Zurich, you also need to change at Bern.

If driving, you head to Interlaken Ost and then towards Lauterbrunnen, where the is a covered car park: Parkhaus Lauterbrunnen AG, Telephone +41 33 828 7400. You can book in advance and it would be wise to do so. If you park on the 7th level, there are trolleys and direct access to the station. If you park on a different level , there are always trolleys, lifts etc. and you exit for the train station at Level 7.

The Wengen website has a map of the location and instructions for how to get there by train or car, altough you cannot take your car all the way to Wengen, http://www.wengen.com/location.html
