Die Fohlen endured a sluggish opening half of the campaign but have greatly improved since Dieter Hecking's arrival in the dug-out at the end of 2016.
However, they are without a win in their last four in all competitions and there have been signs in recent weeks that their busy schedule, which has also included the Europa League, has started to take its toll.
Although some of their players are now set to join up with their international squads, the majority of the side are due to stay put in North-Rhine Westphalia.
Wendt himself recently retired from playing for Sweden and believes the fortnight off will benefit the players as they look to move up the standings.
He told the club's official website: "It'll be nice to have a break. We've had a mid-week game in each of the last six weeks.
"We've had a lot of games and a lot of those have been away matches so we've been on the road a lot. The break will do us good."
