Engelberg tourist information & hotel reservations.
We warmly welcome you to visit Engelberg and wish you a wonderful vacation.
Engelberg is a perfect resort, suitable both for summer and winter holidays. The resort is located at 1050 meters elevation and grabs the attention with its Benedictine monastery, gorgeous mountains and fresh surroundings. Around the village there are cable cars in all directions and you can also find numerous places of accommodation.
The skiing there is suitable for all levels of difficulty and you will like some of the tracks even if you are an extreme thrill seeker. You should know that the Gerschnialp and Untertrübsee are suitable for beginners in skiing (can be reached from the Trübsee station) and the Titlis is for experts. Titlis is a 10 624 feet high summit, reached by advanced skiers by taking the gondola to the Trübsee station. From there one should take the cable car to Klein-Titlis – the whole trip lasts about 40 minutes and offers some magnificent views of the St. Gotthard Pass, Lucerne, Interlaken and Bernese Oberland. From Klein-Titlis you can ski down to the Trübsee – you will pass the Rotegg lift and Stand. However one should be careful as the track is quite steep and has some sharp turns.
As mentioned above, Engelberg is also a wonderful summer resort. Around the resort there are crystal clear lakes, snowy peaks and green meadows. You can explore the area either by using the 360 kilometers of well-maintained hiking trails or with the help of the numerous cable-cars. You can also spend your time with the various available activities – from cliff-climbing to wood carving. There is also a sports center in Engelberg with in- and outdoor ice skating, tennis courts, fitness, curling, billiard, table tennis and more. During the winter you can go on horse-drawn sleigh rides and from January to March these are quite common on Friday evenings.
You can go by plane to Zurich and reach Engelberg by train or car. By car the trip lasts about an hour and a half and you can also stop to have a look at Lucerne.
