He was recipient of the Gottfried-Keller-Preis and the Erasmus Prize.

He had for wife the catholic mystic and stigmatist Adrienne von Speyr (1902–1967). Her spiritual director and friend, the theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar, kept a journal during many years about her life in which details regarding her relationship with Werner Kaegi can be found. This journal was later edited in 3 volumes under the name "Erde und himmel" ("Earth and heaven").

Kaegi became a foreign member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1948.
