We are always looking for new resorts for our clients here at Corporate Peaks. This year we added Wengen In Switzerland, as another string to our bow which is great place for Incentive travel events.
As we headed up to the car-free Lauberhorn village, which is only accessible by the Wengernalp Railway, a feeling of relaxation washes over you. Whether skiing or just riding the train up to the top for the spectacular views, tis a site to behold.
…as you race down where many a pro skier has gone before!
The Village itself is a short main street, lined by shops and several large Victorian-style hotels. There are few bars and Hotels that offer live bands and the tourist office has a weekly schedule. Which we can always review and make minor changes to those who have booked a more detailed corporate ski trip.
So next up- Where to after the slopes if it isn’t your hotel/ chalet spa? The following suggestions are great for taking your incentive trip employees for a bit of apres ski. The rock bar, Hotel Maya Caprice and Hotel Sunstar, are three of those to mention. If you are looking for a later night there is an underground night club by the Silberhorn hotel with an eclectic playlist but fun nonetheless!
Wengen also has a mix of Swiss and Italian restaurants, for all price ranges. We ate at a rustic Italian that has great service, very-good pizza/pasta of course, but great meat and vegetarian options also- For every one of our Corporate Events it is undoubtedly important for us to source out varied menus with the ability to cater for all dietary requirements. So be sure to check out Sinas and has a cosy apres bar attached with it, for a more rustic, relaxed vibe with excellent service too!
The views from the ski area are a highlight with the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains making a magnificent backdrop. For more far-reaching views, the railway continues above the ski area, through a tunnel in the Eiger to Jungfraujoch, the highest railway station in Europe at 3,454m. On the way there are stops at two viewing galleries carved out of the sheer north face.
The local ski area, with 103km of pistes, suits intermediates, the best; Mürren’s slopes are a bit tougher, but vary. In total the Jungfrau lift pass covers 210km of pistes and is served by 40 lifts.
All in all Wengen certainly shone as our hidden gem of the season and one that we hope to visit more often with our corporate incentive trips, who are looking to escape some of the crowded powerhouse ski resorts!
