Arguably the best location in Wengen. The Hotel Silberhorn is opposite the train station (which you use to get into resort as well as up the mountain) or if you prefer to take the gondola then that's only 200 metres away, three minutes walk in ski boots. To top it off you can ski back to the hotel via a tree-lined blue run. It's a location that's hard to beat in Wengen, it was one of the first hotels built in the resort and almost every room has views of the Jungfrau.

The hotel itself has a great restaurant full of Swiss classics from cheese, meat or chocolate fondue to Raclette and Rosti, the staff are super friendly too. We particularly like the bar area with a real cabin sort of vibe, roaring open fire, dark wood benches and plenty of board games and darts. There's also a cosy library with leather sofas to sink into whilst getting stuck into a book. Or, if you love a good spa session after skiing then you won't be disappointed with the saunas, steam room, indoor and outdoor hot tubs as well as a relaxing rest zone with panoramic views.

What we like

  • Opposite the train station to take you up the mountain each day
  • Can ski back to the hotel on a blue run
  • Decent spa area or bar depending on your apres style

Worth knowing

  • The train takes longer to get up the mountain than the gondola, but the queues in the morning are much shorter and it goes straight to the heart of the ski terrain
  • There is a nude area in the spa, but you can take a towel with you
  • There's a hairdresser, jewellery shop, sports shop, laundry service and ski school all within the hotel

Lovely view of Jungfrau and Eiger Auckland, New Zealand A comfortable but old-style room in need of TLC, but a renovated bathroom. The balcony with its splendid view made up for any deficits in the room. Close to the cogwheel train from Lauterbrunnen... Rated 4 on TripAdvisor

View on map

The Hotel Silberhorn is at the bottom of the blue 36 piste back into resort. The train that takes you up the mountain each day is opposite the hotel or the gondola is a three minute walk away. You are in the centre of town as well, so its thumbs up all round.
