Wengen is the closest village to Jungfrau Top of Europe - probably one of the most famous and most visited sites in Switzerland. Located above the Lauterbrunnen Valley and its impressive waterfalls, Wengen offers some of the most dramatic views over the Valley up to the famous Bernese Alps triad (Jungfrau, Eiger, Mönch peaks). 

With the Royal Experience, you can even taste the crisp mountain air: ride on the open-balcony of the gondola between Wengen and Männlichen, then hike to the crown shaped viewing platform offering amazing views over the Alps. Simply unforgettable...


The Royal Experience: get the best seat in the house

First, the Royal Ride

Take the Royal Ride from Wengen to Männlichen. From the rooftop balcony of the gondola, the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau seem close enough to touch.

Then, the Royal Walk

Once you've arrived in Männlichen, one of the most beautiful peaks in the Bernese Oberland, follow the Royal Walk hiking path - stunning views are just minutes away and the crown - shaped viewing platform is also quite a sight. 

But let's take one thing at a time, because there's so much to experience on this 30-minute hike. At seven stages along the path, you will encounter the court painter, unlock the rich secrets of the treasure chest, explore this mountain kingdom and learn more about the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage site. It's a rewarding adventure for the entire family.
