Late July Trip to Bernese Oberland

Greetings Fellow Travelers-

We (two pre- 60s active couples) are planning a week in the area- thinking of splitting the 6 days between Lauterbrunnen and maybe Wengen. We are considering booking at Hotel Silberhorn in Lauterbrunnen. Looking for ideas regarding hotels in Wengen. We plan to walk-hike- sightsee etc. Our first trip to this area.

Hi Rhumboogie,

I don't think it's necessary to break up your trip with half in Lauterbrunnen and half in Wengen. These villages are only about 20 minutes apart by train, so it's not a huge change.

For Wengen, I really like the Hotel Alpenrose, www.alpenrose.ch. I've been there twice, the last time this past January. It's a perfect little jewel!

Rhumboogie - strongly suggest you stay in Wengen for your entire trip. My husband and I (who fit your same description) have visited this area annually for 10 years. I have pages of info about the area -- restaurants, hotels, hiking trips, transportation cards. Not sure how TripAdvisor forums work, but if there is some way (and you're interested) in getting your email address to me I would be happy to send you all the info I have. Too much to post here.

If too much trouble to do email -- Hotel Eiger at the train station in Wengen is what you want.
