The small cable car connects the two families Waser as well as Tschümperlin with the monastery village Engelberg and makes life much easier since 2005. Before, there was only a small laborious hiking trail and a daredevil transport railroad that united them with the outside world. Thanks to support from the canton, institutions and a lot of own work, the construction of the new railroad could be started in 2004. The railroad now has two intermediate exits, which can be operated at the push of a button. The current lift makes the everyday life of the two families immensely easier. The children can now comfortably use the railroad to school all year round. Thanks to the income from hikers, bikers or freeriders, the operating costs can be covered.
On the mountain you will find two restaurants which invite you to take a break.
High above Engelberg lies the Ristis mountain restaurant with a large sun terrace. Here you can expect culinary delicacies with cultivated service and a breathtaking panorama with a view of Titlis, Spannörter and Hahnen. In addition to the restaurant, the Ristis offers various activities for the family. Next to the summer toboggan run and the Winter Yet Park there is a large adventure playground with a rope park, milking cow and Globi's wild water world.
