As the largest ski resort in Central Switzerland, Engelberg has plenty of slopes for both experienced and inexperienced skiers and snowboarders, as well as a wide range of off-piste attractions.
Summer & Winter
Cross Country Skiing
With the Titlis behind you and the Hahnen in front, you glide softly through the Gerschniwald forest. The Gerschnialp Cross-Country trail is great for ambitious skiers as well as for those who prefer a gentler pace.
From the Titlis valley station, the funicular railway quickly takes cross-country skiers up to the winter wonderland on Gerschnialp. The 8 km varied route starts close to Gerschnialp mountain station. A small shuttle bus is available to take you to the starting point, but more skilled skiers might like to tackle those few metres themselves. Once you have donned your skis, you can set off through the sparse woodland. The snow muffles the sound of the swishing skis, allowing you to drink in the tranquillity of nature. Every now and again there are short, intense climbs that get your heart pumping and clouds of your breath floating skywards. Time for a break? Then pop into Café Ritz in Gasthaus Gerschnialp, conveniently situated right by the trail, for a nice warming cup of tea. Once your fingers have defrosted you’ll have your breath back and be ready to take on the slightly downhill section towards Untertrübsee. At the end of this delightful workout, the funicular will take you back down to the valley.
You can purchase a Cross-Country Pass (Loipenpass) along with your railway ticket at the valley station or in the tourist information centre. Guest Card holders can use the trail free of charge.
