Summer & Winter

Engelberg-Titlis is Central Switzerland’s largest winter and summer holiday destination. This bustling Alpine village offers a wide range of holiday activities ideal for families, novices, keen amateurs and professionals – turning every stay into an unforgettable experience.

Folk Museum

Of days gone by: The Talmuseum or Folk Museum of Engelberg is located at the center of the village. The historical building in which the exhibit is housed is a farmhouse built in 1786/87. The front of the house bears several coats of arms representing the local families that have lived in the valley for centuries.

 

Inside, museum visitors can see several rooms furnished in the style and manner of the 18th century, so that one gets a good idea of how the people in and around Engelberg lived back then. Prayer corners and devotional pictures evidence the influence of the Catholic faith on the local valley culture. Simple kitchen tools, leaf-filled mattresses, and wooden shoes tell the story of work-filled days and modest times.
