Wengen, Switzerland

Good for families seeking traffic-free peace amongst stunning scenery.

Switzerland has a good choice of resorts that are largely or completely car free, including Saas Fee and Zermatt. These are great locations to help families feel relaxed and safe, so successfully, in fact, that they've now become busy places filled with electric cars and throngs of people. Depending on where you stay in the resort, you may also have to walk some distance between your hotel, the nursery and the ski slopes. 

Wengen is also popular, but has not grown as much as some other Swiss areas and all facilities remain close together. The surrounding scenery of the Jungfrau region is magnificent and awe-inspiring and the village atmosphere usually placid and safe. The local ski kindergarten will care for and teach children to ski from age four.
