To bring Wengen back to the fore politically and to develop or support future visions.


We take up topics and try to find solutions with our community and also implement them.

Der Name IG1268

How did we come up with the name IG1268? And what does it mean?

Now the name IG1268 was created in autumn 2019 when we had a meeting. We wanted something that would make you think and even wonder about the name of the IG1268.

The explanation of the name IG1268:

IG stands for community of interests.

1268 stands for the year in which the village of Wengen is written down for the first time in the history books.
