Food & Drink Brunni Area

Appreciate the region’s beautiful natural surroundings the relaxing way – sitting on the sun terrace of a mountain restaurant with a refreshing drink in one hand and a delicious snack in the other!

Rugghubel (2294 m.a.s.l.)


The SAC Rugghubelhütte is a 2½-hour walk from Ristis. The walk takes you through protected wildlife areas, where you might be able to spot some of the region’s wildlife in their natural habitat. The Rugghubelhütte is not open during winter time. However, there is a winters room, which you may use.


Brunni (1860 m.a.s.l.)


You can reach the Brunnihütte from Ristis via several hiking trails or by chairlift. The SAC hut has space for up to 40 guests to stay the night and a suitably sized restaurant. Lake Härzlisee and the Kitzel Trail lie directly behind the mountain hut. So if you’ve had enough luxury for the time being, this cosy dwelling is just the place to spend a couple of carefree days in the mountains.

The rustic pub on the shores of Lake Härzlisee called Kräuterhütte sells hot and cold drinks, wine, prosecco, sweet treats, and bratwurst and bread for the barbecue. You can also pick up some Globi souvenirs and local produce.


Rigidal (1745 m.a.s.l.)


The Älplerbeizli Rigidalalp pub is just a half-hour walk from Ristis and is open all year round in favourable weather conditions. Guests at the Rigidalalp are treated to a cosy, rustic atmosphere, panoramic mountain views, and local culinary specialities such as Engelberg cheese platters and Lebkuchen.


Ristis (1606 m.a.s.l.)


The Bergrestaurant Ristis with its large sun terrace lies high above Engelberg and yet can be reached quickly via cableway. Diners here are treated to culinary delights and excellent service while enjoying breathtaking views of the Titlis, Hahnen and Spannort peaks. The Bergrestaurant Ristis is your ideal partner for private events, celebrations or functions tailored to your individual requirements. Our skilled and ambitious team are always happy to advise you and to help turn your ideas and wishes into an unforgettable experience.

The Oberristis snow bar lies half way between Ristis and the Brunnihütte, right next to the ski slope. Here you can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the spectacular mountains as you sip on your hot or cold beverage. It is a great bar for skiers and snowboarders, but it is also accessible on foot. Those walking the winter hiking trail towards Rigidalalp will pass a sign after about ten minutes saying “zur Schneebar”. Here you turn left and walk for about 20 minutes along the path to reach the bar.

While the kids play in the Yeti Park, parents have a perfect view of them from the outdoor, park-side seating. The snack stand at the park serves a range of hot and cold drinks as well as small snacks to ensure that no one goes hungry.


Flühmatt (1352 m.a.s.l.)


The Flühmatt restaurant can be reached either by taking the cableway up to Ristis and then walking about half an hour downhill, or by walking 40 minutes uphill from Engelberg. This restaurant is furnished in typical Engelberg style and serves up the famous and delicious local dish of Engelberger Älplermagronen (Swiss macaroni cheese).


Schwand (1189 m.a.s.l.)

A good meal always awaits visitors at Gasthaus Schwand, and there are also rooms for those who wish to stay the night. The guesthouse can be reached on foot from Ristis in about 1¼ hours along a downhill roadway in good condition (pram and wheelchair accessible). Travelling to Schwand from Engelberg takes around 1 hour on foot and 10 to 12 minutes by car.

Brunni Cable Car Station (1050 m.a.s.l.)


The newly built Familienrestaurant OX is situated right next to the Brunni cable car station and the beginners area Klostermatte. The modern self-catering restaurant offers space to 190 guests and has a big sun terrace.
