This is wonderful original vintage travel poster promoting Wengen, Switzerland as a winter travel destination.
Wengen is a village in the Bernese Oberland in the canton of Bern, located in central Switzerland and it is a part of the Jungfrauregion.
Since 1930, the Lauberhorn ski races have been held in Wengen. The races traditionally consist of a downhill run, a slalom, and a combined event. In addition to being one of the technically most challenging downhill races, the Lauberhorn is the longest race in the FIS World Cup circuit and arguably the most scenic.
The poster depicts a woman’s silhouette containing the Jungfrau mountain, Jungfrau railway train, and skiers in full activity. A perfect stone lithograph from 1952. I would like to go!
Imagine this poster as part of the interior design in a sports chalet in Wengen. Looks good! In excellent condition mounted on linen.
