    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.

    What's Nearby

    Sitting on the main Dorfstrasse, the hotel is close to plenty of amenities. There's a pharmacy right next door, plus shops, bars, restaurants and a bakery all within a couple of minutres' walk. The Männlichen cable car is your quickest way up the hill, and there's a blue run that will take you back to the bottom station at the end of your day. If you've been over on the Grindelwald side of the mountain, it might be easier to download on the cable car.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.
