Built back in 1908, this family-run hotel is one of the oldest in Wengen and offers simple, traditional accommodation that’s perfect for skiers on a budget.
You can’t miss the Bernerhof’s chalet-style exterior, with its cheery red shutters. Inside, the theme continues into the rooms, which have a fuss-free design and wooden furniture. They may not be five-star luxury, but the comfy beds will ensure you’re well rested for the next day’s skiing. As well as the main building, there’s also the residence annexe, 20m away.
You’ll take your half board meals in the Restaurant Taverne, in the main building. Continental buffet breakfasts will fuel you up for the day, and 4-course dinners full of good home cooking will greet you on your return. If you fancy a change, you can swap one evening meal for a bubbling pot of the Swiss staple – fondue. Or you can choose to eat à la carte in the Pizzeria Pajazzo, in the residence building, which offers Italian favourites – try the house pizza with tomatoes, bacon, onions and Swiss cheeses, followed by an indulgent chocolate pizza.
Unless you’re eating or sleeping, you’ll likely be out on the slopes – and the Bernerhof is in an excellent location. It’s just 2 minutes’ walk to the Männlichen cable car, so you could be one of the first on the mountain. The hotel is on the main Dorfstrasse, so it’s also close to the restaurants and shops of Wengen, and just a 4-minute walk to the train station.
