What travellers are saying
- This Review refers to the Pizzeria Restaurant on top of Mount Titlis. There is probably no need to say just how breath taking the view from the Observation Deck of Mount Titlis is, that alone is worth every cent that you have to pay to get up there. We wanted to have lunch in the Pizzeria, we were at first rudely told that there was no seating for us, not so much because there were no spaces, but the man made lots of comments that he was alone and that he could only serve so many people. We saw some empty seats and pointed to these, he said that we can have these, but would have to wait a long time to order and eat. We decided to stay. In no time did he come back with the Menu, took our order and the food was quickly to arrive. He soon lightened up, when we commented about the quality of the Prosecco that he had just served us. The service then went from 'leaves much to desire' to 'very good'. The Food was fantastic as well, so much so that we ordered a Dessert too. I would certainly recommend the Pizzeria on Titlis, well worth a visit!Written 25 November 2022
- It's my dream to see and touch the snow.
The tickets aren't cheap but worth what you get. to reach the top with Rotair cable train is the most fun and then enjoy a breathtaking view of the top of Titlis. Wish I can come back again.Written 12 July 2022
- After our lunch at the Engelberg Alpenclub and learning that the cheese used in our fondue came from the local monastery, we had to go see it. This is Switzerland’s only publically accessible artisan cheesemaking production within a monastery. Inside the monastery store, we watched cheese being hand-produced and regional milk being crafted into specialities, such as the famous “Engelberger Klosterglocke.” The monastery was built in 1120 and to date there are still approximately 30 monks living and working there. Very interesting place to visit in Engelberg.Written 24 January 2022

- A 15 min walk from Engelberg train station and it was wonderful. Large gondola with 1 stop and you were at Ristis where there is a adventure playground and toboggan for the kids. Restaurant there with facilities. Some great views of titlis mountain and others. Short 5 min walk to a chair lift up to Gleitschirmstartplatz Brunni where there was a hotel, restaurant and pond. This pond had a trail around it you could walk bare foot, different textures and temperatures. Very sensory! My kids and I went around twice!Written 20 September 2019
- Trubsee is the middle station when going to the Mt. Titlis peak.
Your entry ticket allows you to get off here and later proceed your journey, which I strongly suggest.
Take a hike around this glacier lake, it will take up to an hour and you can also rest in one of several cafes.Written 8 April 2022
- Go back in time and ride up in a lovely gondola up to peace and calm, no others lifts, just walking tracks and a great restaurant with friendly staff and wonderful views. A piece of paradise.Written 10 March 2022
- It’s was amazing and awesome view there. Unfortunately I didn’t go to skiing because I was rush for my flight. It’s such a nice place for skiing and stay with lover. It’s quite a lot traveler there when it was Dec 2019. I would love to go to visit again.Written 6 April 2022
- Rolf took myself and my daughter off piste skiing one morning in December when the snow conditions were not as excellent as they usually are in Engelberg. We had a very enjoyable morning and learnt a great deal from Rolf. He is very knowledgeable not only about Engelberg but also about off piste skiing in general - he has a vast wealth of technical knowledge. We'd be pleased to contract Rolf again for some off piste skiing the next time we are in Engelberg,Written 30 December 2019
- A little jewel with some clever design fetures in both the old and new parts of the museum. Plenty of Engelberg history and examples of Swiss traditional furnishings. Worth going for the collection of posters for sale alone.Written 17 April 2022
You can either get dropped off in Oberrickenbach (where you can take the cable car to Bannalp lake to start) or you can start from Ristis (Brunni) and get picked up in Oberrickenbach. Sportier people can also combine the Walenpfad with the Rotgrätli hike, to make it a round walk. You can overnight at Brunnihütte and Bannalp
Starting from Lake Bannalp, you can already enjoy the scenic Bannalp lake (stronly advice to take the cable car up to the lake). The lake is very quiet and surrounded by massive mountain slopes.
The walk up to Walegg, is the most scenic part of the hike. At Alp Oberfeld you can have a drink and you might see some snow. After Oberfeld there is a second ascend where you can stop at a small outcrop where you have an outstanding 360° view (first pic), it might even be one of the best views in the alps. After that you arrive at Walegg, the highest point of the hike.
After Walegg you descend to Walenalp, also a very photogenic spot. Have a break at the small BBQ place with the view towards Walenalp and the Walenstock mountain behind.
Then a less interesting part follows, with some ascends to Rosenbold. There you have a very nice view of the Engelberg skyline and Brunni.
At Brunnihütte you can have a break, cool your feet off in the special foot-whirlpool or even swim in the Herzlisee. This place can be pretty crowded in good weather, with lots of families with kids.
Now you have the choice to take the cable cars down to Engelberg or walk down.
If you want to see amazing alpine landscapes, do this hike! Its not that long and difficult, but you have to be able to walk rough terrain with lots of ups and downs. Have proper hiking shoes, sunscreen and something to drink.You can shortcut the hike at Brunnihütte by taking the cable cars down. I started the hike at around 11am and was down in Engelberg at 3:30pm (I stopped a lot to take pictures and had a drink at Brunnihütte). The scenic part (Bannalpsee-Walegg) and Brunnihütte can get pretty busy.Written 23 July 2021
- I used to ski jump, so I had to go see the hill. It is not set up for tourists to visit, but I was keen to see the hill design, the judges' stand and other features. An up to date hill - far better than what I skied on!Written 17 April 2022
- This bike shop is just around the corner from our hotel. It's a real nice bike shop and merchandise were arranged in a neat and organized way. I wish I walked out with a bike.Written 5 July 2016
