Sledging on the sunny side of Engelberg – the Brunni slopes with gorgeous views of the Titlis are the perfect place to sledge under the sun.
The two 2.5 km sledging runs from the Brunni mountain hut to Ristis provide plenty of fun in the sun. To get there, take the free local bus service from Engelberg railway station to the Brunni valley station. The gondola lift will take you up to Ristis, where you change onto the chairlift up to the Brunni mountain hut. At Ristis, you can hire sledges from the Yeti-Park. Once you get to the hut, you can choose between two routes back down to the chairlift station. The Rinderbüehl route takes you straight down the slope before twisting sharply to the left and heading down to Ristis in the direction of Hütismatt. The Zigerboden route is only open when there is sufficient snow. It also starts by the Brunni mountain hut and turns sharply left after a steep downward section. After that, the ride is gentler until a very steep final section that brings you down to the chairlift station. This second route is more challenging and not really suitable for small children. If you feel peckish while you ride, that’s no problem: the Brunni hut at the top and the mountain lodge in Ristis at the bottom both offer a range of food and drinks. After a day of sledging fun, the gondola lift will take you back down to the valley.
Tip: The Yeti-Park now also hires jack jumper sleds.
