Breathtaking and stunning are the words I chose to describe this Apartment rental. After a bit of research on apartment rentals in Wengen through tripadvisor and other websites, I came across Alpine Holiday Services and this particular Chalet. Rented an apartment in this Chalet for a week and we wish we had more time to take in the classic home-away-from-home experience that this chalet brought.
The chalet is a 5-7 minute walk from the Wengen train station and is almost a flat steady walk. The Supermarket (Coop) and many restaurants serving international cuisine are all close to the main train station. Note that Wengen is a car-free town and any services which would require a vehicle are on an absolute need-only basis. Though hotels will make the initial transfer and drop by their hotel owned cars. Few Taxi companies in Switzerland will offer to drop you to your destination in Wengen. If you have a car and driving in Switzerland, the car will have to be parked in Lauterbrunnen and then a hop on the train to Wengen.
From the apartment and its balcony you have clear views of Jungfrau, a few of the surrounding alpine peaks, the Lauterbrunnen Valley and the hill towns on mountain slopes, like Murren, Gimmelwald, Grutschalp, etc.
"Alpine Holiday Services", manages the Chalet right from the time you make the booking till you checkout. They are very prompt in answering any queries that you may have and they were great in providing additional information and options to services in and around the region. A big thank you to Rachel who leads the team, for making our stay a memorable experience.

About Wengen in respect to the Chalet:
Wengen being at an altitude of 1247m, is easy access to the surrounding Bernese Alps by train/cable car/walks (hikes), etc. The Gemsenweg Maenllichen Cable Car Station is 2 minutes from the train station and this will take you in 6 minutes to Maenllichen from where you have fantastic views of the 3 mountain peaks of Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. And also fantastic views of the Lauterbrunnen and Grindlewald valleys and the surrounding mountains and countryside. Also you could head out to various types of trails through Alpine meadows, forests, valleys, streams, lakes, etc. for all walks of life (singles, couples, families). The views from Maenllichen is one of the best you will see in Switzerland.
