The village is characterised by the imposing monastery and the collegiate church. Surrounded by a fascinating mountain landscape, the majestic monastery village offers a summer and winter activity programme. There are still about 30 monks living and working here today. The Mountain of Angels as the founders of the Benedictine monastery called the place in 1120 is a popular excursion destination for people travelling from nearby Lucerne: the journey to Engelberg by road or narrow-gauge railway can take as little as one hour.

The Titlis is the highest glacier excursion destination and biggest ski and snowboard paradise in Central Switzerland. The Titlis and its glacier park are accessible by revolving rotair cableway. At an altitude of 3020 metres above sea level visitors are treated to a fabulous view of the central Alps. The Titlis Glacier Park and the "Ice Flyer" chairlift are a paradise for visitors looking for gliding fun. Mt. Titlis also offers a glacier grotto in eternal ice and Europe’s highest suspension bridge.

In Engelberg, families benefit from the national “Families Welcome” quality label, which guarantees facilities catering for families specifically. The summer toboggan run and adventure playground are just two examples of the wealth of experiences on offer for children.
