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.

Brändlen-Haldigrat

The ski tour from Brändlen to Haldigrat is definitely one of the secret spots around Engelberg. While most of the ski tourers and freerides are taking the cable car "Maria-Niederrickenbach", you can enjoy complete silence and a beautiful view of Bannalp when taking the small cable car "Brändlen".
