Engelberg, Switzerland

Engelberg-Titlis is the largest winter and summer holiday destination in central Switzerland. The attractive village with the famous monastery offers a wide variety of holiday activities for families, newcomers and those in the know. The many exciting options will make your stay an unforgettable mountain experience.

Engelberg is located 25 km south of Lake Lucerne in a wide mountain valley at an altitude of around 1000 meters. At 3,239 meters, Titlis Mountain with its glacier, and Hahnen Mountain at 2,ó00 meters, are towering over the surrounding peaks. In the winter they make sure that there will be snow far into the spring season. One of the top 10 ski regions in Switzerland, Engelberg is also known for its diverse ski and freeride area. In the summer, on the other hand, it's all about hiking, mountaineering, climbing, biking, and playing golf.

Engelberg is not just a winter resort — it's a winter paradise. 

The town offers such a variety of things to do that you will be tempted to extend your stay long enough to try everything. The two sides of the valley couldn't be more different and they provide pure enjoyment to both athletes and those who like to take it slower.

Spread over an altitude of 2000 meters, there is room for snowboarding, skiing and shedding.

The long, snowy winter begins as early as October and lasts into May.

The 55 km of cross country ski trails meandering through the lovely Engelberg area make cross-country skiing a fantastic experience!

Fresh wind in your hair, glistening snow and sunshine — this is what you expect from shedding fun in Engelberg. Try one — or all -of the three different shedding runs with a total length of 7 km. On Fridays and Saturdays between Christmas and early March the shedding runs are also open at night for a fast downhill run. If you prefer a more quite pace, explore the area around Engelberg on 55 km sign-posted winter hiking trails.



Faster than ever directly into the eternal ice with the “Titlis Rotair” gondola. Biking, a climbing course or a golf game.

The multifaceted family activities with the free summer program and the Alpine playground at Ristis make the children's eyes lightup. 

End the day with a lovely glass of wine or a tasty meal — even gourmets get their money's worth in Engelberg.

Hiking with views far and wide, breathing in fresh mountain air and the scent of flowers make you feel as good as new andlet your senses come alive:

500 km of hiking trails offer everything from leisurely to strenuous routes. 

There are pleasant places to stop and rest, countless grilling spots and mountain restaurants where you might like to linger
