Wengen (1274 m) is a village in the Bernese Oberland in central Switzerland. Wengen has approximately 1,400 year-round residents. This number swells to 5,000 during summer and to 10,000 during the winter peak tourist season. History: Wengen was first mentioned in official documents in 1268. The origin of the name is unknown.
