Summer & Winter

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.

Gerschnialp-Untertrübsee

The Gerschnialp Snowshoe Trail is a wonderful way to explore nature as you wander through the Gerschniwald forest at the foot of the Titlis, leaving your tracks in the fresh powder snow. 

The Titlis funicular quickly takes snowshoe hikers from the Titlis valley station up to the start of the snowshoe trail. From the mountain station, the route briefly follows the funicular as far as the well signposted start of the Gerschnialp Trail. You soon reach the first highpoint on the tour – the Gerschniwald forest, a fairy-tale landscape of snow-bedecked pines and tree stumps. When you reach the edge of the forest at Schlegi, you continue across open ground alongside the Bitzistock. Soon you will see the Untertrübsee restaurant in the distance and know that you are halfway through. You can take a welcome break in the restaurant, whose meringue with whipped cream is generally regarded a sensation. Once you have warmed up and eaten your fill, you can embark on the return journey. First, the route takes you across a wide meadow with an open view of the surrounding mountains before passing alongside the edge of the forest and heading to the Gerschnialp mountain station, where the funicular will take you back down to the valley.

Please ensure you only hike on the signposted snowshoe trail and not the cross-country ski trails alongside it.
