Engelberg is located in a high valley, between the mountains Titlis (3239m) and Hahnen (2600m), and is part of the ski resort Engelberg-Titlis. It lies at the heart of Switzerland, only about 2h away from Bern and 1h from Zurich, and thus is the perfect location for all snowsport lovers. This ski resort is one of the biggest ski resorts in Central-Switzerland and is widely known for being a venue of the ski jumping world cup.
The area’s mountains offer diverse slopes that cover all difficulty levels. On the Titlis, freeriders, snowboarders and skiing professionals will find perfect conditions. Thanks to the mountain’s glacier, the slopes on the Titlis are snow-safe at all times. You’ll also find the ski resort’s longest slope on the Titlis. Additionally, you can discover the ski resort Brunni, on the Schonegg (2040m). Most of the slopes on the Schonegg are blue and thus perfect for kids and families. The Jochstock (2564m) is always a good choice for a nice skiing afternoon.
Alongside the classic lessons for skiing and snowboarding, the ski schools in Engelberg also offer off-piste activities, cross-country skiing, sledging and snowshoeing. There are also several kids’ areas in Engelberg. The Yeti-Park, just behind the restaurant Ristis, and the Globis Winterland, right next to the valley station of the Klostermatte lift, are places where the children can practice and have fun at the same time!
Engelberg’s highlight is definitely the Rotair Bahn, a cable car with rotating gondolas that leads up to the glacier’s peak. Once you’ll have checked out all the nice spots and seen all the beautiful views, you’ll have the possibility to experience the après-ski culture in the Brunnihütte après-ski chalet - at an altitude of 1860m!
