Wengen or Murren?

We are planning on staying in Wengen or Murren for 4 nights in September but can't decide which city to stay in. Your recommendation on which place to stay. Also recommendation on hotels. We don't need anything fancy, more on the inexpensive side. Thank you.

Both are wonderful. Our favorite is Wengen, but I wouldn't exactly suffer from staying in Murren :)

It's more economical to rent an apartment from VRBO/AirBnB/Interhome than a hotel. We typically pay $150-$200/night for a very nice apartment with kitchen and great views, while decent hotels in the area can run $350-$500 and then you have to eat out every meal, which gets expensive.

Neither is a city; they are tiny villages. There are few hotels in either, so it is quite manageable to look at all of them. Search booking.com to see what falls within your price range - most rooms are considerably cheaper than the prices mentioned above.

Thank you! Leaning towards Wengen. One of my friends stayed in Murren and another in Wengen, so both were highly recommended. It appears that Wengen is bigger and maybe a little more to do in the evening????? Anyone else out there with an opinion on Wengen or Murren. Thank you very much.

Wen’gen is my favourite as it sits in the middle of the region where as Murren is right on one edge and takes a lot longer to get over to Grindelwald.

I’m sure you’ll enjoy where ever you stay. Enjoy.
