Family trip for 1 week: Wengen and/or ??

Jump to last reply

Starting to look ahead to 2013 and would like to visit Berner Oberland. Family of 4 with kids 14 & 11; never been to Switzerland. Flying in/out of Zurich from the UK in early/mid July. 7 nights / 6 days of non-travel. Seeking a moderately active vacation (walks and such).

I've done some early, basic research and it looks like Wengen is a popular recommendation on this forum. Is that the consensus, particularly (or even) for a family?

At first I thought that Grindelwald would provide more options but it seems that it is too crowded and touristy. Lauterbrunnen and Interlaken are too "low", Gimmelwald and Murren are too small and/or remote, etc.

I was leaning getting an apartment/chateau for the entire week (i.e. 1 base). That has it's advantages, but should I look into splitting up the stay? Perhaps with some time elsewhere like Luzern?
