360° Panoramic view at 3020 m.
The high valley of Engelberg in Central Switzerland boasts an action-packed summer and winter programme while also offering every opportunity for relaxation.
The village is characterised by the imposing monastery and the collegiate church. 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, Engelberg's 'house mountain', 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.
Several theme trails (mountain flower trail, Brunei trail, tickle trail, Knapp trail) provide the perfect opportunity to explore the countryside on foot. The hiking paradise of Trübsee, popular starting point for tours to several mountain lakes, is located halfway up the Titlis. Other options for adventure include climbing up one of the four via ferratas, paragliding through the mountain air, river rafting and canyoning and biking. And the 18-hole golf course is no less exciting.
The 12-kilometre-long descent from the Titlis to Engelberg is the longest and overcomes a difference in altitude of 2000 metres. The Joch Pass ski region extends all the way to the Bernese Oberland. Live on the sunny side of Engelberg is a whole lot calmer: the Brunni is perfect for beginners, families, groups as well as relaxing. And the valley can also be explored on cross-country skis, doing Nordic walking, winter walking as well as in a horse-drawn carriage or sleigh.
