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.

Urner Haute Route

In winter, this ski tour with its many historical associations crosses a particularly lonely stretch of land between Andermatt and Engelberg. A touch of adventure is in the air as you make your way along the impressive stages leading from hut to hut. Summit tours from Gemsstock to Lochberg, Sustenhorn (3,503 m), Uratstock and Grassen (2,946 m) end up with a dream descent to Engelberg.

This impressive route through the Central Swiss Alps was once one of the really big Alpine crossings. The ascent and descent totals some 5,500 altitude metres and can be covered in four to five days.

As the route is not signposted, we strongly recommend that you are accompanied by a mountain guide.


Time need    4-5 days, from hut to hut
