Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run from Basel and Lucerne directly to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich change trains in Bern. The trains run every half hour.
From Interlaken Ost station we reach Wengen in 44 minutes. The blue and yellow train of the Berner Oberland Bahn (BOB) takes us to Lauterbrunnen. Important: We sit in the front part of the train, as it splits in Zweilütschinen. If you take a seat at the back, you will make a detour to Grindelwald. In Lauterbrunnen we change to the yellow-green train of the Wengernalp Bahn (WAB). This takes us to Wengen in 12 minutes.
From Basel and Geneva, the fastest route to the Jungfrau Region is via Bern. From Zurich, the route via Lucerne and the Brünig Pass is recommended. The pass is open all year round.
From the south, travel to the Jungfrau Region via the Grimsel or Susten Pass. Both passes are only open in summer. An alternative is the Simplon Pass with subsequent car transport through the Lötschberg tunnel.
Wengen is car-free. If we arrive by car, we have to leave it in Lauterbrunnen and take the train. The journey from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen takes about 20 minutes.
There is a multi-storey car park directly below Lauterbrunnen station. Alternatively, you can use the car park at the Lauterbrunnen church. From here, a bus leaves for the station every half hour. On foot we need about 10 minutes.
A covered passage leads from the Lauterbrunnen car park to the cable cars to Wengen.
