The high valley of Engelberg in Central Switzerland boasts an action-packed summer and winter programme while also offering every opportunity for relaxation. The “mountain of angels”, as it was named in 1120 by the founders of the imposing Benedictine monastery, is located in the heart of Central Switzerland.
Up until the 14th century there was only one community in the Saas Valley: Saas. Four villages arose out of Saas - of those four Saas Fee, also known as "The Pearl of the Alps", is the most renowned; 13 four thousand meter peaks surround the glacier village, which is located at an altitude of 1800 meters above sea level.
Typical and joyful villages following each other, vineyards as far as the eye can see, a university and medieval city, friendly lakeshores, a lake reflecting an urban yet country landscape at sunset: the Neuchâtel lakeshore is one of Watch Valley gems, a genuine paradise on earth with dolce vita atmosphere.
A natural spectacle in a class of their own are the 600m long Engstligen waterfalls. Under preservation since 1948, these are the second longest falls in Switzerland.
