Hello I have just arrived in Wengen and I had a printed copy of a comprehensive guide about Wengen written by one of your readers with me but I left it on the train at Lucerne. I am wondering if you could re post the link. It was in 3 parts and perhaps posted some time in the last 12 months. Thank you

Hi Jala,

Sorry you lost the printed guide. I'm not too sure which post you are referring to. We have quite a few trip reports about Wengen on the forum. Perhaps if you can click this link and go through the page slowly, you might come across it again? www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/tripreports/

You can also find information about Wengen from here

h. 007 Walk of Fame

i. Check out all the different display boards for the various cast and crew members from the 007 Schilthorn film.

Thank you I have found it now in an old email - I think you are right - not sure who wrote it but I think it was Kim. It is so comprehensive. In 3 parts all in PDF and 50 pages. I took it to the tourist info in Wengen and they printed it late yesterday and then with no prior warning about costs charged me 20CHF!!! Ouch that hurt!!!! I expected to pay but that was a lot - costs 5 cents a page to print back in Australia where I am from. In any case I now have it. It’s title is “Information about Wengen Switzerland and Surrounding Areas April 2015” - it is wonderful.
