Those who look towards Wildstrubel from Adelboden know little of the peaceful Alp that lies almost hidden at half-height in the valley basin. The entrance leads past the 600 meter-high Engstligenfälle.
The Engstligenalp paradise is reached by cable car from Birg, via the Saumweg, from where each year 500 cows make their way to the Alp over the "Chäligang" mountain climb.
An obstacle free round path, rock climbing, mountain tours to the surrounding summits and pass crossings to neighbouring valleys, mountain golf, (in autumn), tasteful enjoyment in mountain restaurants and on observing the meandering waterways all add up to make this traditional spot a genuine Alp experience.
