“Welcome to Heaven” – that’s the motto of Engelberg Tourism. And it is indeed a summer and winter paradise. The village, at an altitude of 1050 metres, does have a charm of its own, enhanced by the impressive Benedictine monastery. The surrounding landscape is as stunning as the word Switzerland can conjure up in your mind. Aerial cableways whisk you up to dizzy heights, to hike, to ski, or to simply rest, relax and reflect. Restaurants – from classy chic to rustic romantic – extend a warm welcome to linger. Sports and activities abound, whether summer or winter, whether easy or energetic, from the calm of wood carving to the adrenalin rush of abseiling. And a varied wellness programme ensures any amount of laid-back leisure. Engelberg – “Angel Mountain” – it’s heavenly.
Engelberg is a municipality in the canton of Obwalden in Switzerland. It has a population of c. 3,500. Engleberg became internationally known as a resort and spa, but is today visited as much for skiing as for its clean air. The ski terrain is largely for advanced skiiers, and beginners should be wary of overly challenging pistes.
