High up in beautiful Wengen, close to the woods, enjoy your stay at Alpenruhe; a 3-star, 24 room hotel garni. Enjoy our splendid views of the Jungfrau and Lauterbrunnen Valley after an energy-boosting day on the slopes or hiking trails. With hearts full of love for Swiss nature, vintage design and traditional hotellerie, our team looks forward to welcoming you!

We offer a rich breakfast buffet in the morning with regional products and homemade jams and in the afternoon we invite you to have a drink on our terrace. For lunch and dinner our team is happy to direct you to different restaurants on the slopes or in town.

During the winter season we make a fondue chinoise. You can find more information and dates here.


The design philosophy of the Alpenruhe Hotel, with its peaceful colours and natural materials, shows an appreciation for some of Switzerland’s best furniture and graphic designers. Thus, depending on the room category, you will find design classics such as the Fauteuil by Max Moser or chairs by Egon Eiermann. All rooms are equipped with a reissue of the Drei-Kant-Stabil cabinet from 1935. In addition, there is a fantastic view of the Jungfrau massif and the Lauterbrunnen valley.


Built in 1907, the hotel Alpenruhe Kulm was part of the first wave of hotels to establish itself in the Jungfrau region around the turn of the century. Originally a 25 room hotel in “Schweizer Holzstil” architecture, the former owners were proud to announce that they were among the first hotels to provide electric light and central heating.

Having been purchased in 1952 by the Prevost family, the hotel benefited from the revival of winter sport tourism after the Second World War. It was under their supervision that the hotel was refurbished thoroughly in the late Seventies.

It was Ms. Marion Prevost who lead the hotel from one century into the next with everlasting and outstanding effort. Professionalism and attention to detail were the core values of her leadership at the hotel for 53 years. Our team is proud to continue her legacy.

How to reach us

Wengen is nearly car-free and is not accessible by car. You can park your car in one of the carparks in Lauterbrunnen, close to the train station. During the day, a train departs from Lauterbrunnen up to Wengen every 30 minutes. During the evening and at night there are fewer trains so we would advise you to consult the train timetable beforehand.

The Swiss railways ensure that you can reach Wengen by public transport easily from Switzerland’s main cities and airports.

If you contact us timely we are happy to arrange for a pick-up at the Wengen train station. This is possible until 20:30h.

However, the hotel is within a eight minute walk of the train station.
