Trail rules

Trail rules for mountain bike guests

Cyclists visiting Engelberg can choose from a range of different bike trails. As not all the trails are reserved exclusively for cyclists, we ask you to follow a few rules in order to avoid clashing with other trail users. The rules are also intended to protect the natural landscape and ensure your safety.




To get your bike clean and ready for the next tour, you can take advantage of the bike wash at the Titlis valley station. Two bicycle wash bays are available to the left of the main entrance.

At the Hotel Crystal on the side towards the train station, bikers will find a bike public laundry. Please follow the instructions.


The bike wash at BIKElocal can be used at any time. Please do not spray against the shop windows during washing. After washing, please roll up the hose again and turn off the water.


The facility is located in front of the hotel (to the right of the main entrance) in summer and is always freely accessible.
