Wengen/Bernese Oberland is CRAZY expensive

Jump to last reply

We just returned from Switzerland. Stayed in Wengen, traveled around the area. Just thought I'd warn anyone planning a trip to the area that it is insanely expensive. $7 for a small box of cereal from the grocery store, $22 for a cheeseburger, $7 for a pitcher of tap water. The going rate for cheese fondue was $30-$35 per person. Each ordinary one course lunch for our family of five was in the $125-$150 range.

I don't typically complain about prices when I travel because I know the US dollar is weak and it's my choice to travel with a family of five. But I have to admit that the prices in Switzerland in general, and Wengen in particular, were surprising to me. We spent the week before in Amsterdam and the prices there seemed like a bargain compared to those in Switzerland.

Please no lectures on economics, supply and demand, etc. I just wanted to let folks who may be planning a trip there know that it is really difficult to stay within any kind of budget in the Bernese Oberland and that expectatioins of what to spend on meals, lift tickets, etc. may need to be adjusted.
